Lachha Paratha

This recipe is adapted from Manjus http://manjuzkitchen.blogspot.com the pics made me drool and just wanted to try her easy lachha paratha. Manju has added kasoori methi and I am sure it must have tasted yummy but I made plain lachha paratha by using oil wanted to make a low calorie so skipped ghee or butter for roasting.

Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
oil - half cup
water - to knead
salt - 1/4 tsp

Method:
In a bowl add wheat flour along with salt and knead to a soft pliable dough. Keep aside covered for 10 to 15 min. Now add 1 tbs of oil and again knead for 5 min.

Now divide them equally in tennis size balls.

Flatten the dough and dust some wheat flour roll into a normal chapati with the help of rolling pin once done add a spoonful of oil along with some flour and spread it over the whole chapati. Now start rolling the chapati you will get a long roll just pull it slightly and make it longer. Now again roll it round slowly you will get a small wheel design the end of the dough should be pressed inside. Now again roll it to a normal chapati (not very thin). Heat tawa place the paratha just after 30seconds turn it let the down portion become brown then leave oil or ghee from all sides turn and roast the other side as well. You can follow the same procedure with the remaining dough.

Enjoy with any side gravy, dal or even pickle.
