Wholewheat Lachcha Parathas

Lachha paratha is a multi  layered paratha with flaky texture. It is a perfect accompaniment to thick gravies like paneer makhanwala and butter chicken.  I have not used ghee or oil while cooking the parathas. But one can use ghee/oil while cooking the parathas.


2 cups whole wheat flour
Salt to taste
2 tbsp oil for kneading
Oil to apply on the paratha

Layered Paratha


  • In a mixing bowl, take 2 cups of wheat flour, salt and oil. Mix it well. 
  • Using enough water, knead to a stiff dough.  Keep aside the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Take a medium sized ball of dough and roll into a roti. 
  • Apply oil on the roti and sprinkle some wheat flour over it.
  • From the edges, start folding and pleating the paratha till the end.
  • Roll the pleated roti like a swiss roll. 
  • Take the rolled ball and dust some wheat flour.  
  • Roll into a circle with the rolling pin.   
  • Heat a tava and cook the paratha using ghee (I have not used ghee/oil for cooking the parathas) till golden brown spots appear on both the sides of the paratha.
  • Serve lachcha paratha with any gravy of your choice.
