Add water little by little and knead the flour mixture. Make a hard dough from it and keep aside for some time (about 15 - 20 minutes).
Knead it again for a minute and divide it into 8 parts. Make balls from each.
Mix melted butter and ghee in a bowl.
Grease the rolling board with this mixture of butter and ghee.
Take a ball and press it on the rolling board with your palm. Roll the ball with a rolling pin and give it an oval shape and as thin as possible.
Now cut it into thin strips with the help of a knife. Apply some butter and ghee mixture on it with a silicone kitchen brush.
Assemble these strips along the length. Lift up the strips from both sides by rolling board and roll them like a swiss roll and set aside in a plate. Do the same with others and make all the roll.
Keep these rolls in the fridge for an hour.
Take out the rolls from the fridge. Take a roll and place it on a rolling board, coat it with some dry wheat flour and roll it gently with a rolling pin (don't put too much pressure to roll because the strips will mix and it will be uniform). Roll it into a round shape and about 5 - 6 inches in diameter.

Pour 1 teaspoon of butter and ghee mixture over it and flip the paratha to fry. Put 1 teaspoon of butter and ghee mixture on the other side and do the same on the other side and fry till it turns golden brown from both the sides.
When the paratha are well roasted, transfer it to a plate. Cook all the parathas in this way and enjoy with butter or curd as per your liking.
