3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 egg large
ghee or butter
a pinch of baking powder
Combine flour and salt. Add the egg and water until you have a soft, but not sticky dough. The texture is a little more dry than a pizza dough. Set aside at room temperature covered for 30 minutes.
Divide the dough in 5 balls. Take a ball and with a roll pin make a rectangle. Spread ghee or butter, and sprinkle with flour on top. From one long side of the rectangle, fold a piece in a size of 1 cm, and then fold in the opposite side, like making a paper fan. Once you have all the rectangle folded, fold it in oposite direction making a big round circle. Make the other balls. Refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes.
Take each ball, and flatten them.
Heat a pan and medium heat, and apply some ghee or butter. Place a paratha, and cook it each side for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. ENJOY!
Also, I made Taboon bread with Zaatar from Angie.....I have to admit that this bread is delicious!!
