Steps for Lachha Paratha Recipe

Prepare the Dough:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and salt.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of ghee to the flour mixture and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Knead the Dough:
  • Gradually add water, a little at a time, and knead the mixture into a smooth and soft dough. The amount of water needed may vary, so add it slowly to achieve the right consistency.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
Divide the Dough:
  • After resting, divide the dough into small lemon-sized portions and roll them into smooth balls.
Roll Out the Parathas:
  • Take one dough ball and flatten it slightly between your palms.
  • Roll it out into a thin, large circle (like a chapati) using a rolling pin and some dry flour to prevent sticking.
  • Brush the rolled-out dough circle with a thin layer of ghee.
Create Layers:
  • Start by folding the dough circle from one edge, accordion-style, creating pleats or folds. It will resemble a fan or paper lantern.
  • Hold one end of the pleated dough and start rolling it from one end to the other, like a coil or spiral.
  • Gently press down the end of the coil to secure it. You should have a small, coiled dough ball.

Repeat for Remaining Balls:
  • Repeat the same process for all the dough balls, creating coiled dough balls.
Flatten and Roll Again:
  • Take one of the coiled dough balls and gently flatten it between your palms.
  • Roll it out into a paratha again, being careful not to press too hard and destroy the layers. Aim for a medium-sized, thin paratha.
Cook the Paratha:
  • Heat a griddle or tawa over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, place the rolled-out paratha on the griddle and cook until you see small bubbles forming on the surface.
  • Flip the paratha and cook the other side until it turns golden brown and crispy. Brush some ghee on this side as well.
  • Press down gently with a spatula to ensure even cooking and to puff up the paratha.
  • Remove the lachha paratha from the griddle and place it on a plate.
  • Optionally, you can gently crush the paratha between your palms to separate the layers, making it flakier.
  • Serve hot with your favorite curry, raita, or pickle.
Enjoy your homemade Lachha Paratha, which pairs wonderfully with various Indian dishes or can be enjoyed on its own with some yogurt and pickle.
