The Story of Laccha Paratha and how to make it at home?

Laccha paratha or Laccha Paratha is a North Indian specialty. Laccha means “ring” in Hindi. Whole wheat flatbreads made with whole wheat flour use essential ingredients like whole wheat flour, salt and ghee, or olive oil. The paratha’s many flaky and crispy layers make it unique, and they are soft and tender. These Indian flatbreads can be made in a few minutes and can be topped with any curry or gravy. This crispy, flaky paratha can also be known as Lachedar or Paratwala. Parat (or “Laccha”) refers to the layer formed when the paratha has been cooked. Parotta is a South Indian version the laccha paratha. It’s made from all-purpose flour, and it is a Malabar speciality. The Malabar Parotta is a Malabar paratha with all-purpose flour. It has a soft texture. Laccha Paratha is usually made from whole wheat flour, and all-purpose flour can also be used. Restaurants may use a combination of both flours. For home baking, however, whole wheat flour should be used. Below mentioned is the recipe on how to make laccha paratha at home and with a suitable cooking technique.

  • 5. After the dough has rested, make small balls from the dough. Cover the bowl with a napkin.
Rolling laccha paratha

Roasting laccha paratha
  • 1. Heat the griddle, tava, or frying pan. Keep the flame at medium-high to very high. Place the paratha once the tawa has reached a high temperature.
TIP: To check the heat of your pan, sprinkle 2 to 3 pinches of flour. If the flour particles have browned in less than a minute, the pan should be hot enough for the paratha to be roasted. Use a kitchen towel to remove any flour particles that have browned before placing the paratha into the oven.
  • 1. Turn the paratha over once one side is cooked. You will see some air pockets and blisters.
  • 2. To cook the second side, use ghee or oil.
  • 3. After the second side is cooked, flip the side. Place ghee on the other side and cook for a few seconds.
Turn the parathas several times until they are golden brown. Press the sides of the parathas with a spatula while they are being fried. To roast the parathas, you can also use ghee to coat a pan. This is how you should make all laccha parathas. You can place them in a casserole, roti box or other container and cover with a tight-fitting cap. They should be warm.
