LACHHA PARATHA | LACHCHA PARATHA RECIPE


LACHHA-PARATHA
Lachha paratha is the one which i wanted to try for a long time, it finally worked out during the long weekend last week. Lachha paratha turned out flaky and we enjoyed with Palak kofta Gravy( my next post ) During our childhood days, we used to eat the Kerala Malabar Parrota in a friend’s place and we too help her mom in making the parrota. In that same way i have tried this Lachha paratha and let me share the recipe of Lachha Paratha.
laccha- paratha
INGREDIENTS: 6-7 PARATHAS
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR | ATTA 2 CUPS
SALT 1/4 TSP
GHEE 1-2 TBLSP
OIL| BUTTER TO GREASE THE PARATHA
WATER TO KNEAD THE DOUGH
Lachha- paratha
METHOD:
  • In a wide bowl add the flour and salt and knead the dough using luke warm water. Make it into a pliable soft dough. Keep it covered and set aside for 20 minutes.
  • After that divide the dough into 7 equal parts.
  • Dust the dough in dry atta.  Roll it into a big round chapathi.
  • Spread this with ghee evenly and sprinkle some atta on this.

  • Start making thin pleats out of this and twist the pleated dough. The more the pleats you will get more layers.

  • Make it into a pinwheel and dust the rolling board with flour and start rolling gently so that the layers will be there. Make it into a paratha.

Note:
  1. Always make the pleat thin , the more the pleats the parathas will be very flaky.
  2. You can add 1/2 cup of maida(plain flour) to the dough while kneading.
