Lachha Paratha (Multi layered Indian Bread)

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.

Ingredients:

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.

 

Method:

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.
