Heat a tawa on low flame.Dive the dough into small portions as you would for a paratha. Dust the rolling platform with some dry flour and start rolling the dough into a paratha.Place on the hot tawa and cook both side for atleast 5-6 mins until cooked, drizzle oil around the edges and flip the paratha.Make all the other parathas in the similar way and serve hot with pickle or mint yogurt dip.
