LACHHA PARATHA

l

            I’ve never heard of lachha paratha until I saw Junior Masterchef. A contestant in junior masterchef said that she knows how to cook various kinds of foods including Lachha Paratha and the judges were like “ohh wow – Lachha Paratha”. I wondered, now wot sort of a paratha was this. And ofcourse I found it out too…thanx to google.

                 It’s a normal kinda dough to which adding curd is optional, I’ve added it though and it’s first rolled out. Then it’s folded in a zigzag method and then again into a circle. Roll it out again, cook it in a tawa and there’s your Lachha Paratha.

(added a little bit of butter on top to make it look “good”…but it looks otherwise)

Ingredients

(makes approx. 10)

Wheat flour (aata) – 1 ½ cups

All purpose flour (maida) – ½ cup

Curd – ½ cup

Ghee – 2-3tbsp (plus you’ll need extra)

Salt – to taste

Warm water – as per requirement

Method

Mix all the ingredients and knead to a medium soft dough. Set aside for 20 – 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.

Take a portion and dust it with flour and roll it out thinly.

Apply ghee on one side and dust some flour on top of it.

Fold it in a zig-zag manner and then fold it into circle.

Again roll it out. This time it shouldn’t be too thin and neither it should be too thick.

Heat a tawa/flat pan and cook the parathas by flipping both the sides.
