Lachha Paratha or layered Paratha is one of the most famous flat breads in North India. They are called Lachha parathas because of the multiple layers in them. They are made with whole wheat flour and are the perfect accompaniment for any thick-gravied dish like Paneer curry or Rajma curry.
My son is very fond of Parathas and Naan and he loves all the flat breads made with all purpose flour or maida becaue genereally the preparations are softer than whole wheat.Every Friday he demands me to make naan for him. As we all know that maida or all purpose flour is not so good for health, I try to avoid using it in my Parathas or rotis. I thought of making Lacha parathas for him this time because these flaky parathas are made mostly using Atta or whole wheat flour.
In this recipe I have used 75% of Whole wheat flour and 25% of maida or all purpose flour. The trick in making these parathas is to roll them as thin as possible and then then roll it again using a rolling pin.
