Preparing Lachha Paratha (Laccha Paratha), a multi layered shallow fried Indian flat bread is extremely easy and unique technique and I have provided detailed instructions to help you make perfectly layered paratha.
Serves: 4 pieces.
For the dough:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour ( roti aata)
1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1 tea spoon salt
1 table spoon oil
cold milk for kneading the dough
Extra flour for dusting
oil for brushing and frying the paratha.
Mix all the ingredient listed under dough and make a soft and smooth dough.
Cover the dough with a wet towel and let it rest for 15 – 20 minutes.
Divide the dough in 4 equal part and shape them round like a ball.
Take 1 dough ball at a time and make a very thin and flat round Roti using a rolling pint and brush some oil over it.
Dust some flour over the oiled surface.
Now fold it like a paper fan.
Stretch a little and shape it like a Swiss roll.
Repeat the same process with the rest and keep it aside (covered under a wet cloth).
Now again roll it flat and round using a rolling pint.
Heat a flat pan and then place this flat bread over the skillet and cook from both the side using little oil. (repeat the same with the rest of the dough)
Serve it hot with any of your favorite curry.
You can make this with just all purpose flour or whole wheat flour, I like to use both.
