Triangle Paratha | Layered Paratha | Paratha Recipe

Triangle paratha, an easy layered paratha made with wheat flour. Compared to other layered paratha, this triangle paratha can be made quickly and the paratha is so flaky with all those layers.

I had tasted this paratha often in restaurants, but very rarely I make it at home.When I got bored of regular chapati / roti, it would make this. They are super soft and with simple curry it tastes awesome.

Triangle Paratha

Why is it called Triangle Paratha ? 

Simply because of its triangle shape :-) 

Which brand of Atta flour am i using ?

I've been using ashirwad brands of Atta flour for all my rotis & paratha for years now. Atta flour is also a wheat flour but it's super fine compared to the wheat flour that is available all over North America stores. 

Though I have used wheat flour from local stores for plain roti and chapati, I prefer to use atta flour for all layered paratha for the best result.

Tips to get the beautiful layers in Paratha?

  • The dough should be soft and pliable, if the dough is too sticky, then the layers will merge and you won't get that beautiful layers after cooking the paratha. 
  • Make sure to sprinkle some flour while folding the paratha. It will help to separate the layers well.
  • Roll the paratha when you're ready to cook. Rolling and keeping the dough uncooked for a longer time also merge the layers.
