Veechu Parotta | Eggless Veechu Parotta

Veechu Parotta, one of the recipes that I have always seen street vendors make with such an ease. Layers of the thinly rolled dough makes this very flaky and delicious flatbread that is a popular street food in Tamil Nadu.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups All Purpose flour / Maida
  • 3 tablespoon Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt 
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Water - as needed to make a dough

Instructions

  • In a wide bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar, yogurt and 3 tablespoon oil and mix to combine.
  • Slowly add water to make a dough. The dough should be very sticky and very soft.
  • Keep kneading the dough until is is very smooth. The dough will be on the softer and stickier side.
  • Coat with about 1 tablespoon of oil and let the dough rest for at least an hour. The longer it rests, the better it is. I let mine sit for about 3 hours.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal size balls and pour the remaining 2 tablespoon of oil over the dough balls and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Working with one ball at a time, roll it, stretch it as thin as possible. Liberally use oil when stretching the dough. We don't use any flour when rolling, just oil all the way.
  • I used the oil that I soaked the dough balls in to roll it out.
  • Now fold the opposite ends to bring it towards the center and then do the same to the other two ends making it a square.
  • Cook the parotta on a hot pan until it golden brown on both sides. I did not use any oil when cooking the parotta as it had enough.
  • The parotta can get chewier as it sits. So it is preferable to serve it as soon as it is made.
