In a bowl add wheat flour, salt (pinch), half tblsp oil. Mix well. Now add little by little water and knead for 5 to 10 minutes to make a smooth dough. Smear the dough with little oil and knead the dough again. Cover it and keep it aside for 15 minutes.

Make even sized rounds (lemon sized) and roll it using a rolling pin. Use wheat flour for dusting.

In the middle of paratha put 2-3 tblsp of soya bean mixture. Wrap the mixture and roll the paratha, use wheat flour for dusting. It will be little thick. Lay the paratha in a hot pan. Once you see bubbles on the surface, flip it over and wait for bubbles on this side. Smear little oil and flip. Fry until you see golden bubbles. Repeat the same thing to the other side of the paratha. You should see golden bubbles on both sides of paratha.
