About

Lacha Paratha or Lacheder Paratha is a popular whole wheat, Layered paratha from North India( Punjab). We can do this paratha in different ways like pleating the dough or by doing triangle shape dough & press in between and can also be done as I given below. In South India, same layered parota is made up of All purpose flour which is known as Malabar parota in different style ( you may check my malabar parota post). Here I used all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour.
