Lachcha Paratha


My first experience with Lachcha Paratha was no doubt pleasant. This crispy-layered version of paratha made me enjoy thick Indian gravies a lot more than I used to. Lachcha Paratha holds much flavor than the regular paratha. You can have an omelet with this bread and it will taste much better than ever. Lachcha Paratha is tasty on its own and when combined with your main dish, that’s a whole new story.


I agree that preparing this bread takes time, but it’s worth it. In fact, I believe the time spent preparing Lachcha Paratha contributed in its amazing taste. Having said that let me tell you, making this bread is not difficult at all.

Try Lachcha Paratha with some of my previous recipes like Butter Chicken, Mulbar Beef Curry, and Palak Paneer.

Now, just because it’s an Indian bread doesn’t mean you can only have it with Indian food, it goes so well with Cheddar or Blue Cheese too.

Tip: Using high-quality butter not only enhances the flavor of Lachcha Paratha but enhances its aroma and texture too.

If you’re not comfortable using butter in this recipe, you can use oil.

So here it is!


  1. Loved those layers… Would love it with Paneer butter masala

  2. Breads from around the world are facinating to me. Cultures from opposite ends of the planet often have similar breads or methods. Bosnian pita dough is first rolled paper thin, and eventually ends up coiled like this bread.I have never had lachcha paratha but your recipe is easy to follow and your video makes everything clear. I am excited to try this. Thank you!

    • Arinacooking

      Congratulations Sonali and may God bless your marriage 🙂
      Now for the chickpeas. You have to boil them for one hour, drain them, and boil them again until tender, this may take two hours or so, but if you’re using pressure cooker it won’t take long. Hope this helped.

      Oh! And to make life easy one you, don’t bother removing the skin in the future, you can blend it with the skin on.
