This no dough paratha recipe is made in 15 minutes and tastes just as good. So simple to make and easy to prepare without any hassle. Serve alongside curries to make a delicious Indian meal!

This easy paratha recipe is so easy to make and requires no kneading at all. Easy to whip up in under 15 minutes and so tasty when served alongside any Indian curry. They even taste delicious on their own with a warm cup of tea on these cold winter days.

This no dough paratha recipe is a version of a flatbread that originated in South East Asia. A traditional staple in many Indian households this quick flatbread recipe is soft, flaky, and full of flavour.

I absolutely love this recipe! Shall I tell you why? Because it requires no kneading and it’s made in 15 minutes! You can whip up these no-dough parathas so quickly.

Now, don’t get me wrong I love regular parathas, but sometimes you just want something quick. This is where this amazing recipe comes in.

You can get really creative with this recipe. Add some tomato purée to turn this recipe into a tomato paratha. You could add a variety of flavourings or spices to make it personal.

However, I like to keep this recipe simple. It still tastes so good. Make sure to make extra because I guarantee you will keep on wanting more.

I use wheat flour in this recipe, but you could use plain flour as well. I have tried this recipe with plain flour as well, otherwise known as all-purpose flour in the US and it tastes just as good. If you want to keep this recipe gluten-free then you substitute the plain flour with equal parts of almond flour and tapioca flour.
