Indian Layered Flat Bread
I am grown up eating these paranthas of my mom's hands. I tried several times to make it my mom's way but i never succeeded. She makes it very easy and quick way but after so many trials i left trying it. Then i went to our blogging world to search for easy lacha parantha recipe. I tried quite a few methods and found this one so easy to follow. It takes very less time. If you are a beginner then be bit careful while rolling the parantha as we are not supposed to put lots of pressure, we are suppose to roll it very gently, but once you get the idea of pressure you can make it really fast. You can add slat in the dough if you want it salty. I always make it plain and have it with milk :P . My kids enjoy this by saperating layers and making spirals with them. You can have it with any kind of dry or gravy based side dish. Even you can have it with any of the Chatni/sauce etc. You can have it any way you like.
Wheat Flour Dough- as needed see method here
Oil/ghee/Olive oil - as needed

READY TO SERVE
- You can make it salty also. You can add salt in dough itself you sprinkle salt while spreading oil/ghee on the prantha. Choice is yours. I always make it plain as we serve it with side dish which contains salt.
- You can use ghee/Vegetable oil/olive oil as per your choice.
- While rolling parantha put very light pressure otherwise the layers will not appear.
