Hi, can I keep the prepared dough in the refrigerator overnight & use it early morning?

Yes, you can prepare the dough I advance and keep in an airtight container in refrigerator. Sometimes, paratha prepared from refrigerated dough may turn chewy after cooling so if you want to eat paratha immediately after cooking, then you can use the refrigerated dough.
