Shakhar Paratha - Sugar Paratha

Yes you read it right Sugar/Shakhar Paratha, this is one Paratha which I never say no when Mom ask for it and also it is less hassle for her coz she only has to make Sugar Paratha (Shakar Paratha)

Preparation of Shakhar Paratha/Sugar Paratha :

1. Knead the dough with 1/2 tablespoon oil and sufficient amount of water. The dough should be a little tougher than your average pizza dough.
2. Keep the dough aside for 1/2 an hour.
3. On your kitchen board, sprinkle a little dry flour. Make balls of the dough you had kneaded.
4. Roll one ball at a time into a circle and sprinkle sugar onto it
5. Fold the edges in wards like you do in a dumpling, ensuring that no filling is exposed.
6. Roll this dumpling so that it becomes a proper round again.
7. Very gently roll the ball in to a flat not to thin circle.
8. Heat a skillet to medium temperature. Grease it with oil, then cook both the sides of the Paratha, by flipping it over, so that the sides brown properly.
9. Your Shakhar Paratha is ready to eat.

You can eat it with Tomato Sauce.

Note this stuff can be very very hot from inside so eat it slowly
