How to Make Lachha paratha

  • Mix flour, a tsp of ghee and salt well and then sprinkle water - enough to make a smooth dough.
  • Divide into 3 equal balls. Roll into big circles.
  • Then apply a tsp of ghee evenly on the top.
  • Sprinkle a tsp of flour and again spread evenly and start making pleats.
  • After fully done, twist and coil (roll) to make a flat round.
  • Roll carefully, without applying too much pressure to ensure the layers are still there.
  • Heat a tawa and drizzle oil and cook in medium flame on both sides until golden brown.
  • Pat gently the sides of the paratha with kitchen towel to highlight the layers.
  • You can again smear ghee or butter when it is hot.
  • Enjoy hot with dal or dahi and pickle.
