Whole Wheat Parotta | How to make wheat parotta | Lachha Paratha

Whole Wheat Parotta Recipe
Whole Wheat Parotta Recipe
If you live in India you must have sure had parottas or paratha. Most fast foods and Indian restaurants can never be complete without a parotta recipe on their menu. My memories over parotta have been with egg curry. Parottas are layered Indian flat bread that can be easily made at home and trust me homemade parottas taste great, and I must admit it takes practice and a bit of patience for excellent results. Follow my tips at the end of the post. Lachha / layered parotta, keral parotta & wheat parotta are all the same. But there are variations where egg is added to the dough. This is an eggless version of parotta which is light one person can eat 2-3 parottas easily. You can pair it with any veg/ non veg curry to go with it and with a tandoori dish it makes an ultimate meal ;-).

Cooks Wisdom

Tip 1


1. I used full whole wheat you can use 50-50 plain flour (maida) + wheat flour (atta)

Tip 2

2. For more flavour you can add crushed jeera/cumin and add to the flour before kneading.

Tip 3


3. Adding baking soda gives flaky layers to the parotta. So never miss to add it.

Tip 4


4. Adding sugar does not add sweetness to the parotta but helps the parotta to have a golden brown colour when fried.

Tip 5

5. You can add warm milk to knead the dough too.

Tip 6. 


6. Be generous and use oil/ ghee to suit your taste. The layers come best when using oil and flour to layer them.
