Yummy and sumptuous whole wheat parathas are absolutely irresistible, but seem like a luxury to somebody who is busy because they do not get the time to prepare it any time they want.
One way out is to make the parathas whenever you find time and freeze them. If done right, the whole wheat parathas stay good for at least one month.
You can take out the required number of parathas and thaw them whenever you want. This recipe explains How to Freeze Parathas. For them to stay fresh for longer, cool the parathas completely before packing and freezing them.
Do not place too much stuff in the freezer as that can reduce the efficiency and lead to some spoilage. We wish you happier meal times with these delectable frozen whole wheat parathas!
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a semi-soft dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
- Roll a portion of the dough into a 150 mm. (6") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling, brush with ¼ tsp of oil, fold into half to form a semi- circle.
- Brush the semi-circle with oil and fold again to form a triangle.
- Roll out again into a 125 mm. (5") length triangular paratha using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and half cook the paratha for 15 seconds on each side, without any oil.
- Repeat steps 3 to 6 to make 11 more parathas.
- Place each half cooked paratha separately and let it cool completely.
- Stack them by keeping a butter paper in between and store them in freezer bags. Label them with name and date.
- Once you wish to consume them, remove the butter paper from the parathas.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), cook it on a medium flame using 1 tsp of ghee till it turns golden bornw in colour from both the sides.
