I have made a Flaky paratha post previously,That paratha is made with maida..But this is a flaky lacha paratha made with wheat flour.So it is a healthy one..This is really easy to make,but it take a bit of time...Usually we will be having regular chappati,but this one will be a change for that...I served it with chettinad mushroom and tomato chutney.You could rest the dough for 2 hours..This makes the chappati so soft..So try this and let me know what you think...
Wheat flour-3 cups
Warm water as required
In a mixing bowl add flour,salt,oil and rub them together.
Gradually add warm water and mix it till it forms a dough..Knead the dough for 3 min.Apply oil on the dough and cover it with a bowl.Let it rest for 15 min.
Now divide the dough into equal portions.Take a small ball and roll it into thin chappati.Apply oil on the chappati and spread it evenly.Dust some flour over the chappati and start folding it like a saree fleet.(check image).
Then Curl it to form a round shape.Apply a tsp of oil over the curled dough and let it rest until you make every dough like this.
Now take a curled dough and make chappatis out of it.Finish the entire dough like this.
Heat a tawa and put this chappati on to the tawa and cook on both sides by applying ghee or oil till done and golden.
Then remove it on to a plate and crush it with your hands,so that the flakes will separate.
Put this into a hot case so that it stays nice and warm.Serve it with any side dish..
