Notes:

Try to make this paratha bit spicy and tangy else it will taste like a normal paratha only. If serving to kids , adjust the spiciness accordingly.

Try to stick both color dough properly while rolling, else the color square will comeout at time of roasting.

METHOD FOR MARBLED PARATHA / FLAT BREAD

Take the cut edges from the chequered flatbread. Place them over each other.

Turn them from one end to another to form a spiral, close the end. Using the palm press it lightly on the top to smoothen.

Using the wheat flour roll it out to medium sized and roast it on a griddle using oil.
Or

Break small pieces of both the colour dough and combine them to make one ball. Roll it out. This also makes a marbled flatbread. The first method is more useful as it gives better textured marbled flatbread and also the cut portions do not go waste.
