Food Culture

Paratha is a kind of unleavened flatbread, which is made of atta. The flavor of paratha is various. Sometimes, people mix stuffing with flour and knead them together such as gobi paratha or makka paratha. Sometimes, they prefer having a plain paratha and eating with side dishes like aloo, or stuffed paratha with keema, chana dal, etc. As for dessert, sugar paratha has never been forgotten. It is the best time to taste them while they are cooked.

Food Equipment Introduction

  • Use a processing line to make paratha, put dough in a dough hopper after completing an ingredient blending process from a blender/mixer.
  • Dough in the hopper will be pressed into a dough sheet.
  • Margarine is added on the sheet and followed by folding and sheeting processes.
  • A series of z-direction folding and pressing is conducted to make multiple layers.
  • Next, the multilayer dough sheet is sheeted for three times before rolling up.
  • Then, the rolled dough is cut into little dough balls by EA-100K.
  • These dough balls are sent into different processing equipment to be covered by plastic film and pressed into flat and round dough sheets.
  • Pack a certain number of finished products per bag as required, and each piece is wrapped in film to prevent them sticking together.

Fundamental of Design

  • To make paratha with layers, all steps require a jointed processing line to achieve the jobs. Thus, ANKO designs to connect automatic layer paratha production line (LP-3001M), which can make more than 64 folds, and mini bun making machine (EA-100K, and now the updated model EA-100KA) and filming and pressing machine (PP-2). Three machines are integrated into an efficient processing line to complete the tasks.
  • LP-3001M is designed to perform multiple layers of folding and to make small buns and cutting; EA-100K (the updated model EA-100KA) is a great choice for pressing dough ball into flat shape and packing with plastic film at the same time; PP-2 would be the only selection.
