Lachha Paratha

A multi layered Indian flat bread quite familiar in Punjabi cuisine which tastes awesome when served along with chicken kurma or with channa masala usually this parathas are cooked in tandoor, the famous cylindrical clay oven which is quite a hard task for us to get here.. These parathas tastes and looks exactly like parotta but with minimum efforts this paratha tastes fabulous..This lachha paratha goes for flour, warm milk and oil, my teddies called these parathas as little sister of parottas since they looks exactly like our south Indian parottas..Lachha parathas are quite easy to prepare and its completely a filling dinner or lunch when served along with a spicy side dish..We enjoyed having this parathas with vegetable kurma, u can fold this parathas as many ways, i went for cutting the rolled dough as long strips and rolling them as likeswiss roll..once cooked, just push the sides of the paratha to release the layers and served them warm..U can conserve them very well for a day or two and serve warm by reheating them in a griddle or microwave oven..Sending to Celebrating Regional Cuisine hosted by Sujana..

Lachha Paratha

2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Whole wheat flour
1cup Warm milk/hot water
Salt
Oil as per need
Extra flour for dusting

Knead the flour, salt and a tablespoon of oil with warm milk, knead well as firm dough, brush the dough with oil and keep aside for an hour..Divide the dough as equal size portions and roll as circles..brush with some oil and sprinkle some flour over the rolled circles..Cut the circles as strips, arrange the strips one by one over themselves and roll tightly as a swiss roll..keep them aside again for an hour..now press lightly with rolling pin to give a round shape..

Heat few drops of oil, cook this rolled paratha on both sides by drizzling enough oil, until they get cooked well, once get cooked just push the sides to release the layers..Serve hot with spicy side dish..
