Lachha Paratha is a multi layer shallow fried flat Indian bread. Making a lachha paratha is art and require practice; as say practice make a man perfect; in lachha paratha its goes very true. While I made my first lachha paratha it made almost flat simple paratha but after 2-3 times practice it’s become very close to real restaurant like lachha paratha. Now as after a long time making of lachha paratha I can say “Now I can make perfect lachha paratha”; and here I am going to share my lachha paratha recipe with whole wheat flour.
