Lachha Paratha

Today's recipe for BM#24 for day 2 under the theme restaurant menu card is Indian bread,for this I chose to make Lachha paratha.
Lachha Paratha is a layered flat bread made in griddle with wheat flour which is similar to the parottas available in South India.This paratha goes very well with any curry or simply with dal and raitha or plain curd,pickle.I served it with the Channa kurma and here is the recipe...........................


Wheat flour21/2cups+1/4 cup for dusting
Ghee/clarified butter3tbs
Salt 11/2tsp
Milk 1/2cup
Wateras needed
Wheat flour1/4 (for dusting)
Ghee3tbs(for brushing and frying)


 In a bowl take the wheat flour and salt,add the ghee.Mix it till it is crumbly,now make a well in the center of the flour and add the milk+water..Knead it well to a smooth and soft dough.Cover it with a damp cloth leave it aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Now take the dough and knead it well for a minute and divide to 6 equal portions.Make into a smooth ball and roll into a circle of 8-10 inch diameter.Apply some ghee and sprinkle some flour to the rolled circle.
Now make pleats from one end to the other(like saree pleats),roll the pleated dough from one end to make a ball(as shown).Dust the surface and roll it carefully without giving too much pressure to a 6-7 inch diameter.
Heat the griddle and add 1/2tsp of ghee,put the rolled paratha on the griddle and cook it.Flip it to the other side and gently press the parathas with the spatula to get crisp.Apply some ghee and cook it both sides get crisp and golden.Take the paratha in a plate and crush it between the palms gently to separate the layers.
Delicious Lachha paratha is ready.

Serve it with curry of your choice.
  • Be generous with the ghee while frying the parathas to get a delicious and soft parathas.
  • The ghee can be substituted with oil or vegetable shortening but my personal preference is ghee.
  • Cook the parathas in a medium flame to get cooked evenly.
