To prepare the parathas:

* Take the dough ( Small lime size ) and take medium lemon size stuffing, then first roll the dough little and stuff the gobi inside and close it nicely and make them sit foe 2 minutes before rolling it. ( This will help the stuff not some out when you r rolling the parathas... ).

* Take a pan and heat it. Then put the rolled parathas and apply oil to cook.

* Then when one side is cooked well then turn to the other sides.

* Press on all sides so that it cooks uniformly.
