Crispy, flaky and multi layered wheat four Indian bread
Paratha or parotta is the popular bread of Indian specially from North India and Punjab.Parathas are made in many ways and varieties but this lachcha paratha is very popular due to its crispiness and flakiness, its little tricky to make but not difficult at all.
This can be enjoyed with any spicy gravy curry or bean curry. It can be made either with wheat flour or refined flour or with the mix of both. little extra oil is used to make this then the regular paratha. .you can use either oil or ghee to make it.
There are 2-3 methods to make lachcha paratha but I prefer to make this way,as it gives best result.
first the dough ball is rolled then a paste of oil and flour is applied all over the paratha and then it is folded like a chinese paper fan and then it is twisted to make a round can also make the rolls ahead (till step 11)and then the final rolling and shollow frying can be done at the time of serving.
