LACCHA PARATHA - Pro.style & An award + Meme

This recipee is called pro style as it was helped by my husband who is a professional chef. i would like to dedicate this to him as he is also a part in giving me a hand in setting this blog.



Ingredients

Plain Flour - 2 cups

Salt - To taste

Curd - 1/2 cup

Milk - 1/4 cup

Olive oil - 5 tbsp

Method:

Sieve the flour & make a well to add in the rest of the ingredients like milk & curd.
Add in the salt & knead to a soft dough with salt.

Do not overwork the dough as it would be become hard. knead it until soft & little bit sticky. Add in the olive oil to the kneaded dough & mix well until soft.


Cover it with a wet cloth & allow it to rest so that the curd, milk & salt mix it to make a yeast mix & raises the dough a little bit.


The raising gives a clean texture to the dough & gives a soft result.

After resting divide the dough into small balls & allow it to rest for another 10min under a wet towel.


In a floury base start to flatten the ball & start to knead it with more oil to a certain level & start to make laccha as shown in the picture with your hands.




Leave it to rest in the laccha form & flatten it again & finish it in a hot tawa.



Once cooked properly beat it from the sides to get it flaky & serve hot with any kinda curry or gravy.
