Layered Paratha/Lacha Paratha (Multi Layered Indian Flat Bread)
Parathas are a traditional staple food of Southern Asia. There are different varieties of parathas across the region. One of the most popular parathas is Potato stuffed Indian flat bread (Aloo paratha) which I have posted already. The main ingredients of any parathas are whole wheat powder, water,salt and ghee or oil, with this we can add lot many varieties of veggies, meat,cheese etc.
Layer paratha doesn’t have any stuffing. Few layers are created by spreading oil/ghee between the layers, which gives this paratha more flavor and little crispiness. There are few different methods for preparing lacha paratha. Traditionally, parathas are prepared for breakfast or dinner with some curry or raitas and pickles. You can even have this with evening cup of tea as it is.
This layer paratha doesn’t require any preplanning, can be prepared with ingredients readily available in almost all kitchen.
