What can you do with whole wheat flour, water, and salt? You can make Paratha — the simple (and simply delicious!) Indian flatbread. The bread is firm enough for spreading with hummus or Tzatziki, and flexible enough for folding around grilled veggies or meats. Here’s the recipe in both video and printable formats:

Then add just enough water to make a firm dough. In summer, when the humidity is high, my paratha dough requires about 2/3 cup of water. In winter, when my haunted, 188-year-old house is bone-dry, the dough begs for 3/4 cup of water.

Repeat the previous 4 steps for the remaining segments of dough.
