Lachha Paratha

Posted by

This is my first attempt at making Lachha Paratha at home and I am simply surprised by how beautifully it turned out- Crispy, flaky, and with lots of layers.

Though I still need to work on rolling the Lachha Parathas and I will be perfect at making it.

People often compare Lachha Paratha and Kerala Parotta but they are the two different flatbreads. Basically Lachha Paratha is made of whole-wheat flour. So the next time, I am going to try it with whole-wheat flour.

Lachha Paratha has its origin in the state of Punjab. The term “Lachha” means ring in Punjabi, the dough is rolled into the form of ring, and is layered with oil to make it multi-layered.

This recipe only needs 4 ingredients in total. The recipe is simple too.

Lachha Parathas goes best with any Non-Vegetarian curry or with Paneer dishes OR it’s your choice to have it with anything you want. 😄
