Indian-Style Lathcha Parantha

Layered Griddle Fried Flat Bread
Layered Griddle Fried Flat Bread – one of the most loved flat bread in India, famous as Parantha ( that is Griddle Shallow Fried Flat Bread). Layered bread has artistic layers that separate or flake out once flat bread is shallow fried. Whole wheat flour is used to make the dough and different techniques are used in different parts of country to make famous layers - Latchas. Before rolling, bread is usually seasoned with salt, a thin spray of oil and few other spices. Once rolled and fried, bread separates in layers due to oil film inside and become crisp from outside. I have tried to capture all important steps to make a perfect layered bread. Give it a try and enjoy this piece of art.
