hey fellas tried sharing my Favorite Lachha Paratha recipe,made of wheat dough ,light cripsy and tasty :)
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp oil
some cumin seeds
warm water for kneading
oil for shallow frying
Sieve the flour and salt together in bowl. Rub in the oil and add warm water gradually. Knead until smooth. Cover and leave aside for 20 minutes.
1.Take one dough ball, flatten it like pattie (by pressing between your palms of against rolling board) and coat it with dry wheat flour.
2.Roll out dough ball in a circular shape (approx. 7-8 inch in diameter) or as thin as possible. Now spread 1/2 teaspoon ghee or oil evenly over entire surface using your hand and sprinkle 1 teaspoon dry wheat flour over it,i have applied oil here
3.Add cumin seeds,i have added as i love the flavour
4.Hold approx 1/3 inch wide strip with your first two fingers and thumb from the top edge of rolled raw paratha, lift and fold backwards such that top edge remains on top.
5Now hold two ends of plited strip and repeat lift and fold backwards process until entire rolled paratha is like a stack of folded plits.
6.Now hold each ends of long stacked-plited strip with your first two fingers and thumb. Lift the strip slowly away from rolling board and give a few mild gentle swings. This will stretch the strip a bit.
7.Horizontally place elongated strip on a rolling board.and Roll it like a Swiss roll. Press and stick outer-end against roll's immediate surface. Prepare remaining rolls.
8Take one roll and place it horizontally on rolling board. Coat it with dry wheat flour and roll it out gently without applying too much pressure and give it a round shape (approx 5-6 inches diameter)
9.Heat tawa or griddle over medium flame. Place raw lachha paratha on a hot tava.Spread 1 teaspoon oil over each side with spatula and cook until both sides gets evenly spread golden-brown spot
Transfer to plate and spread butter or ghee as per your preference. Repeat process for remaining rolls. Soft and crispy parathas are ready. Serve them with any curry ,butter or chutney :)
