Triangle Sugar Paratha / Sweet Paratha/ Chini ka Paratha

Paratha is a thick stuffed wheat bread usually stuffed with various ingredients. Sugar paratha is a paratha stuffed with sugar, an absolute kids favorite.

From the time I tasted these at a friend's place, I just fell in love with parathas. I am not a big sweet fan but these parathas are really very tasty and yummy. I started making it quite often for my kids. It is made with simple ingredients and easy to make. 

Sugar parathas become hard once they are cold. So better to serve them with 2-3 minutes after it is made. But other parathas can be packed for lunch box.

(Makes 8)

2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour  + Flour for dusting
3/4 cups of Water (or as required)
3/4 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoon Ghee / Oil
Sugar as required

  1. Mix wheat flour, salt and water with a teaspoon of ghee and make that smooth dough by adding enough water. Keep it covered for 15- 20 minutes.  Make 8 lemon sized balls of the dough. Press that into a circle and dust it with flour. Now roll it into a flat circle on a dusted floor using a rolling pin.
  2. Spread sugar on half of the circle and fold it. Spread sugar again on half of the semi-circle. You can put as much as sugar as you want. Press the ends.
  3. Dust this triangle with flour and press it again as thin as possible (Don't loose the triangular shape).
  4. Heat a pan / tava. Place this paratha on it. When it puffs up (if the tava is hot enough it just takes a minute to puff up), flip it and cook on the other side for a minute. Repeat this procedure to make all other parathas.
  5. Serve them hot.
