What is Lachha Paratha?

Paratha is a shallow fried Indian bread made using whole wheat flour (generally). Paratha can be plain paratha or stuffed paratha. Lachha paratha is a plain paratha but it has many layers which makes it totally awesome and drool some. These layers are called lachha and therefore the paratha is so-called. Lachha paratha may or may not have any flavors still it is a crowd-pleaser. In this recipe, I have used ghee and rice flour to give layers to the paratha. There are recipes that use maida also or the only maida to make the dough for lacha paratha. In this recipe, only whole wheat flour has been used.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Lachha Paratha recipe

Paratha calls for perfect dough. Whether you make stuffed paratha or plain paratha, the dough needs to be perfect. Of all the paratha recipes, aloo paratha is one paratha which is the most popular and is prepared in every kitchen on and off. And therefore we have a collection of aloo paratha recipes. As of now let’s have a look at the ingredients required to make lachha paratha:

Dough for paratha: Paratha dough has a slightly different consistency than that of the dough for chapati. It is softer. This dough for paratha has been prepared with only whole wheat. No maida has been used.

Ghee: To add perfect layers ghee should be used. Oil doesn’t make good layers.

Rice Flour (Secret Ingredient): Generally whole wheat flour is applied inside the paratha to get the lachha. However, using rice flour gives better lachha and crispier paratha. This is a tried and tested thing. It not only helps in making prominent lachhas but also makes the paratha quite crispy.

Oil: Oil has been used to fry the paratha. You can also use ghee. I find the paratha cooked in ghee to be too heavy and therefore I like to use oil.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
