To make Paratha:
Divide the dough into equal portioned balls.
Place the ball onto a lightly floured surface and flatten with a rolling pin into a round disc (approximately 4" in diameter).
Place a portion of the filling in the middle, then place the other flattened ball on top and seal off the edges.
Flatten again with a rolling pin and roll till it is approximately 6-8" in diameter. This is a delicate process. Use the rolling flour abundantly so that the dough or the mixture does not stick to your rolling pin.
Place the paratha on a heated pan and cook for a minute on one side. Now, turn over to the other side. Apply melted butter or oil on the cooked surface.
Also spoon melted butter or oil all around and shallow fry both sides over low heat until it turns golden brown.
