Indian thalis are incomplete without some delicious laccha parathas. We have a variety of Indian bread but nothing beats the traditional laccha paratha which has beautiful layers and is cooked in lots of ghee. 

So many of us crave for these delicious and soft parathas at home. If you wish to make restaurant-style laccha paratha at home then this recipe is for you. The paratha tastes great with just anything, be it a dry sabzi, daal, or a curry. 

How To Make Laccha Paratha At Home?

  • Begin with preparing the dough. In a big bowl, add wheat flour or atta, ghee, salt. 
  • Keep adding water as required to make the dough. Make sure the dough is kneaded right. It should not be too soft. 
  • Take a ball size portion and roll it into a thick circle. 
  • Top with ghee, salt, chilli powder, kasuri methi, and ajwain. Spread it with your hands. 
  • Start pleating the paratha from the top. 
  • Twist the pleats in a braid and curl to make a circle. 
  • Place some fresh-cut coriander leaves and sesame seeds on the top. 
  • Start to roll the paratha. Remember that laccha parathas are thicker than a regular paratha so roll it out accordingly. 
  • Place on a hot tawa and cook. Use desi ghee to cook both sides. 
  • Transfer to a plate when golden and crisp. Serve.
