Lachha Paratha


  •  2 Cups whole wheat flour 
  • 1/2 Cup maida
  •  1 Cup ghee or clarified butter 
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to knead the dough


  • In a big bowl add the flours and salt and knead the dough using luke warm water.
  •  Make it into a pliable soft dough. Keep it covered and set aside for 20-30 minutes.
  • After that divide the dough into  equal parts.
  • Dust the dough in dry atta.  Roll it into a big round chapathi.
  • Spread this with ghee evenly and sprinkle some atta on this.
  • Start making thin pleats out of this and twist the pleated dough. The more the pleats you will get more layers.
  • Make it into a pinwheel and dust the rolling board with flour and start rolling gently so that the layers will be there. Make it into a paratha.
  • Heat a griddle and cook the parathas on both sides. Apply ghee on both sides.
  • Serve hot with any Paneer dish or any other side dish of your choice.
