About this recipe

A rich, crispy paratha that can be made plain or with any masala and herbs smeared in between those flaky layers..Here I have used some basic masala powders to add flavour to the paratha..

Ingredients for Lachha Paratha

  • Whole wheat flour- 2 cups
  • Oil-2 tbspn
  • Curd-2 tbspn
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to knead
  • For stuffing
  • Hing, red chilly powder, jeera powder, amchur -1/2 tsp each
  • Salt-a pinch
  • Dhaniya powder-1 tsp
  • Kasuri methi- 1 tsp, crushed slightly
  • Desi ghee-appr 3 tbpn (few drops on each paratha enough to smear the masala)

How to cook Lachha Paratha

  1. Knead flour, salt, oil, curd with enough water into a soft dough. Let it rest for 1/2 hr.
  2. Mix all the masala powders and kasuri methi in a small bowl.
  3. Take a small lemon sized dough, roll it into a medium sized roti. Sprinkle some masala powder and few drops of desi ghee and smear it nicely covering the entire paratha.
  4. Now,this step is important to have layers.We all would have made paper fan by folding the paper. Using the same fan fold method, roll and fold the paratha evenly from one corner to the other end.
  5. Now coil the dough and shape it like a ball. Roll it evenly into a medium sized paratha.
  6. Toast both the sides on a hot griddle/tawa and rub some oil/ghee over it.
  7. Serve it with any dhal,any paneer subzji, mixed veg,chole or with just a raita and mint chutney!
