Lachha-Paratha
Lachha Paratha
These are a hands-down favorite of any North Indian residing anywhere in the world. It’s a multi-layer flatbread that’s filled with oil or butter (as per preference), sprinkled with some dried fenugreek leaves (watercress), then rolled into a bun and then it’s flattened to the size of your palm.
It’s then cooked with oil or butter over stop-top and served hot with any kind of curry or beans or simply plain yogurt.
So lets go and make them today 🙂

    Love your easy simple recipe without the margarine or ghee. Where do you buy your dry fenugreek leaves? Can't wait to try them! Thank you.

    Thanks Lydia !
    You can find dry fenugreek leaves in any indian grocery store under the dry spice aisle. They are also sold as "Kasoori Methi" by most of the Indian spice sellers.
