Lachha Paratha

Bored of making chapattis and rotis why not try to make something different today? Let us try making a Lachha  paratha today.


Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
salt                        - 1/4 tsp
Milk                      -  1 1/4 cup ( use more if required)
Ghee                     -  1 tbsp each


  1. Make a dough using whole wheat flour ,salt and milk.
  2. Knead it into a soft texture
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
  4. Roll out the dough as thin as possible and apply ghee(clarified butter) on both sides.and dry dust with flour.
  5. From one side fold the flattened dough into a 1 inch strip folding back and forth like folding a fan.
  6. Now roll in from inside out like a swissroll.
  7. Gently press the dough out (don't press too hard).
  8. Flatten out the dough into 5 inch circle.
  9. Now cook the paratha on a griddle or baking at 400 F
  10. Flip and cook both side, you will see the layers unfolding.
  11. Crumple the paratha just before serving.
