Laccha Paratha- Multi-Layered Indian Flat Bread
Everyone loves Laccha Paratha, this explains that it is my favourite too, it’s a famous North Indian shallow fried Indian flatbread. This layered paratha is quite appetising to look at, and even more interesting to bite into, It’s flaky yet soft texture can go well with many different versions of both veggies and non-vegetarian recipes.
It is usually made by maida but here I have made with wheat flour, consequently, which makes absolutely delectable yet very easy to digest by any age group. The secret of making this bread lied in rolling it perfectly. This layered paratha is also popular as Kerala parota in the malabar region of Kerala.
