latchha paranthaLachha Paratha Recipe- Talking about Indian breads, gives a lot of variety like poori, naan, paratha, kulcha, etc . Lachhedar paratha or lachha paratha is one of the famous Indian breads made using wheat flour.

Simple chapati coated heavily with ghee/oil and given generous number of twists. This paratha is a crisp bread that is seen having many swirls called lachhas when it is cooked.

I have used fresh green coriander leaves to add up its flavor in the parathas. It is well combined with any main course vegetable or raita or chutney.

 

Ingredients:

Wheat flour- 1 large cup

Green coriander- 5 to 6 stems

Ghee/Oil-10 to 20 table spoon

Water- for kneading the dough

salt-1/2 tea spoon

 

Method:

  1. Take off coriander leaves from its stem, wash and chop them nicely.
  2. Mix chopped coriander leaves, salt and wheat flour. Slowly add water and knead the dough for parathas.
  3. Take some dough to form a ball of around 2 inch diameter to make parathas.
  4. Using rolling pin, roll the dough to make a round chapati of about 10 inch diameter.
  5. Generously spread a spoon full of oil/ ghee on the chapati.
  6. Using knife cut the chapati into thin strips of about 1/2 inch width.
  7. Keep all the strips one upon the other and start rolling them to form a circle. Press with hand.
  8. Dusting dry flour, roll the dough again using rolling pin with soft hands.
  9. Heat tawa/flat pan, carefully transfer the parantha onto the flat pan/ tawa.
