  • ¼ tsp of oil on each Paratha, and the size of my Paratha is massive as you can see. If you are making smaller Parathas, even less oil can be used. A little tip from my personal experience is – to apply oil when the Paratha is half roasted. Like when the side is neither cooked nor raw. This is the time when the Paratha absorbs less oil. If you apply oil when its already roasted, it will soak in too much and same goes if it is in its complete raw form.
