Gluten Free Lachha Paratha on Tawa | Multi Layered Lachha Paratha


    • 1 cup Wheafree Maida Replacer (makes 4 parathas)
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 1 tbsp Sugar
    • ½ tsp Wheafree Baking Powder
    • ½ tsp Ajwain (Carom Seeds)
    • 1 tbsp Oil
    • 40 ml Curd
    • 80 ml Warm Milk (more or less as needed to make the dough)


    For making the Caramel:


    1. In a bowl, take Wheafree Maida Replacer and add salt, sugar, Wheafree Baking Powder and ajwain to it. Give it a good mix.
    2. Now add oil and mix with your hands properly till the oil has completely mixed.
    3. Then add curd and mix it very well rubbing it with your fingers.
    4. Add warm milk little by little and knead it into dough. Divide the dough into 4 parts, make smooth balls. Brush the balls well with butter and keep them the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
    5. Now take one dough ball, lightly dust it with some Maida Replacer on both the sides and roll it out into a thin sheet, sprinkle flour while rolling. Don’t worry about the shape or the cracks.
    6. Once done, apply butter liberally on the paratha sheet, sprinkle some Maida Replacer on it and spread with very light hands.
    7. Start folding from one end, pleating the rolled sheet just as you fold a paper fan. Once you reach the end, roll the pleated sheet in a tight circle, join the edges, fix the broken edges by pressing the ball lightly with your hands.
    8. Repeat the same with all the dough balls. Once done, keep it in the refrigerator again for 15 minutes.
    9. Rested enough, the dough ball will become stiff and easier to work with. Take one dough ball dust some Maida Replacer on both sides and now start rolling again with light hands.
    10. Heat the tawa or griddle or frying pan, keeping the flame on medium-high to high. When the tawa/griddle becomes hot, place the paratha on it.
    11. Cook the paratha till it is partly cooked then flip it to the other side, Apply butter generously on the above portion while the back is being cooked. Flip again and apply butter properly on the other side as well.
    12. Once done, take out the Paratha over a clean cloth and crush it with very light hands so that layers come out.
    13. Serve with achar/ butter/ chutney.
