Step 2: After 15-20 minutes paratha dough is ready, so start to roll the paratha. This is very important step while making a lachha paratha or layered paratha. Take the dough at flat surface and stretch the dough as much as possible with help of the oily hands (rub ghee or oil on your hands before you start to knee the dough). Now divide the dough in the equal portions.

Make 5-6 inch diameter circle. After rolling the roti spray some ghee or oil and sprinkle dry flour on it. Now mark a half cut from the center.

Step 5: Heat the pan and place the rolled lachha partha on it. Keep pan on medium heat and roast the paratha from both the side. Make sure gas is always on medium-low flame and don’t forget to add ghee on it. I love to eat ghee, so I am going to use as much as possible. You can roast partha in oil also if you don’t like to roast it in ghee.
