“Lachcha Paratha” is a popular bread from North India. It is a flat, multi-layered Indian bread that goes well in combination with various curries or pulses.
After few attempts, I have got this no fail Whole Wheat Lachcha Paratha recipe. Lots of people add “Maida” or “All Purpose Flour”/ curd / milk / baking soda etc for flakiness and softness. However, the recipe I am sharing today does not uses any of it. The recipe comprises of really simple ingredients which are always available at home. The Parathas turn out to be really yummy and flaky. I have added Ajwain or Carom seeds to the Parathas which is optional. I personally like it as it is very good for digestion and add a distinct aroma to the paratha.
You can also add other flavours to the paratha like pudina (mint) or Jeera (cumin seeds), red chilli powder as per your liking.
