lachha paratha recipe

its also called as paratwala paratha. in punjabi “parat” means layer and layers can be seen on the paratha when it gets cooked. its south indian counterpart is the parotta which is made from all purpose flour and eggs.

lachha paratha is an easy paratha to make. there are some 2 to 3 techniques used for making these parathas. i usually make the lachha parathas using this technique and one more technique. these work for me and i find them simple and easy. you can also check this mint paratha recipe where i have shared more photos of preparing the layered paratha.

i usually make the paratha of medium thickness. if you make them more thick then more layers will be visible but then you have to cook the paratha really very well so that it is not left uncooked from inside.

serve the lachha parathas hot with any vegetable curry like aloo matar, veg kadai, veg handi or with paneer curry recipes like paneer butter masala, matar paneer, kadai paneer, paneer makhani or with mango pickle.

    • thanks a lot ritu. glad to ready your sweet comment and feedback on the recipe. stay blessed and happy cooking 🙂

  3. I made it for dinner last night. Turned out good. I want to know that in step 5 do we apply ghee/oil on the top or on both sides? When rolling it in a circle the outer edge wouldn’t stick. What did I do wrong?

    • ayesha, ghee or oil is only applied on one side on the top. you have to press the edges lightly, so that they stick. if you use a lot of flour while rolling, then the outer edges won’t stick. so knead the dough in such a way, that it is soft but not sticky. if sticky dough is used, then a lot of flour is required while rolling the dough.
