Lachha paratha recipe, how to make lachha paratha

Lachha paratha, a popular layered Indian flat bread recipe, with detailed step by step pictures and video of how to make 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.  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.

Lachha paratha


Notes:
  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.
  3. Lachha parathas tastes best with chole masala.
