Heat up the pan and pour soaked petite yellow lentils and some water in it.
Add some salt and a pinch of turmeric powder
Cover the lid and leave it for cooking(Get the foam out with the help of a spoon if you want as the foam has a particular smell)
Turn off the stove when it is about 80% half cooked (check by pressing it with fingers)
Use a strainer and drain all water(make sure it is fully dry to avoid sogginess while rolling parantha)
Add one cup of wheat flour in a mixing bowl
