Lacha Paratha, Multi Layered Indian Bread made of whole wheat flour. We all are aware of Kerala Parotta which is a multi layered dish made of all purpose flour.  Lacha Paratha is much similar to Parotta, we are going to make a multi layered paratha but the main variation is the flour. Here we are going to use wheat flour / Atta instead of plain flour. So this is much healthier compared to parotta. Also, Parotta needs more expertise in kneading, rolling and making layers. But Lacha Paratha is much simpler, yet more tastier than parotta. We can serve raitha, dal or any gravy as an accompaniment for this yummy Lacha Paratha. This is one of the great potluck dish or Party dish. These parathas are soft and we can just warm them before serving. An absolute tasty and softy Indian bread with multi- layers. I am sure you would love to try this Lacha Paratha and share your experiences..

Method:

  1. Take a mixing bowl and add wheat flour, salt and add water little by little and make it to a smooth and soft dough. Then add 2 tablespoon of oil and knead well. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set it aside for 15 minutes

  2. After 15 minutes, in a clean surface or chopping board, keep the dough. Grease our hands with oil and knead the dough again for couple of minutes. Make equal sized big lemon sized balls (twice the size of lemon) . I got 8 balls out of the dough.

  3. Take each dough ball and flatten with your fingers and dust it with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough ball to a 10 inch diameter thin roti. Pour 1/2 a teaspoon of oil on the rolled roti and spread it with your fingers.

  4. Wash your hands and then sprinkle some flour and spread it evenly. Now, hold the roti and fold it alternatively till the end. 

  5. Again apply little oil on the top of the folded paratha. Slowly and gently, roll the paratha from one end till the other end and gently tuck in the other end on he bottom of the rolled paratha as shown in the picture.

  6. Flatten the rolled paratha and then dust it in flour

  7. Again using a rolling pin, roll the paratha to a 6 inch diameter paratha. Repeat the same for the rest of the dough balls. You can see the beautiful layered paratha after you roll it. Heat a tawa and add rolled layered paratha and cook on one side till you see bubbles. 

  8. Flip the paratha to other side and apply some oil / butter. Again flip it on the other side and apply oil. Flip it again and again till the paratha is cooked completely and are nicely brown in color. Repeat the same for the rest of the rolled lacha paratha. 

  9. The multi-layered Lacha  Paratha is now ready to serve! Relish with your favourite raitha or dal varieties and enjoy the dish!!!
