Steps to make Hemp Paratha:
- Take all the dry ingredients- Multi-grain flour, Sea Salt, Hemp Seeds and Hemp Powder. Transfer them into the bowl and add some water.
- Knead the ingredients until you get a smooth and soft dough. Spread some flour for surfacing and place the dough onto the surface.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal balls. Roll out one ball at a time, into small circles.
- Before rolling, add 1 teaspoon of oil to each ball and spread evenly and dust all the dough balls with flour.
- Roll each dough ball and twist it to make the paratha layered and crunchy.
- Dust the dough balls with more flour to prevent them from sticking to the surface.
- Pre-heat a tawa or a pan from medium to high for about 5 mins.
- Place the flattened dough, one at a time, carefully on the tawa or pan and heat it at a high temperature.
- While you are heating the paratha, add ½ tablespoon of oil and turn the paratha as it begins to fry.
- Allow the paratha to turn slightly brown on one side before turning it to the other side.
- Reduce the heat from high to low and cook further for five minutes before taking the paratha out.
- Do the same for each of the dough balls.
- Once you get them cooked into delicious Hemp Parathas, serve them onto a plate and enjoy your meal.
Note: You can also add flax seeds in your dough to make this healthy dish complete.
