The first experience I had Lachha paratha was not a good one. I had in SB and it was tasting terrible. I thought it is really like that. So never ordered this if I see Lachha paratha in menu. Me and Vj both love the ‘Maida parotta’ and kurma. I used to eat many times before, but now a days due to health and weight constraints, we avoid having maida parotta.
But 2 weeks back when I met Jey and Nags for lunch at Mayura, we ordered lachha paratha. When I tasted it, it was really awesome! It just melted in my mouth and crisp here and there too. I loved it and even at the same instant, I decided to try at home. And today I tried just 2 and it tasted great. Then I remembered, when I was a kid, my mom and grandma used to try this way when they roll chapati and I used to like the process of making :) I can now make this often for my lunch!
Ingredients (makes 3 parathas)
|Wheat flour||1 cup|
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 simply dal or dahi and pickle!
