Zaatar Paratha Mediterranean Flat Bread)

          This Zaatar Paratha is just as delicious as any other stuffed parathas. Zaatar is a mediterranean spice of sesame seeds and thyme. In the middle eastern cuisine, it is very much used as a meat marination and as a spread on breads. Best had with yoghurt, butter or some pickle.

  • 11/4 cup atta (wheat flour)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp. oil to knead
  • 1/4 cup zaatar (Mediterranean spice mix)
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • oil to shallow fry

          Mix together the zaatar spice with 3 tbsp oil into a paste and keep aside. Knead the atta along with the salt, 1 tbsp. oil and enough water into a stiff dough. Keep aside for 20 minutes.

          Divide the dough into equal portions. Roll out each portion into a circle just like a chapatti. Spread a little of the zaatar spice mix and fold into half. Spread again some of the spice paste and again fold into a triangle.

          Roll out into a paratha and keep aside. Make similar parathas out of the dough and the zaatar spice. Heat a tawa and fry one paratha at a time with 1 tbsp. of oil till light brown on both sides. Serve hot with butter, yoghurt or pickle.
