Laccha Paratha is a kind of layered flat bread made with Whole wheat flour (Atta). The term "laccha" means spiral or rings in Punjabi, the atta dough is stretched, rolled in the form of rings, stuffed with fat and shallow fried, resulting in mutlilayered flaky bread. This is closely related to our South Indian Parotta except the fact that it is purely made with whole wheat. While Plain Laccha paratha / paranthas are just stuffed with ghee/butter/vegetable fat/vanaspathi , the spiced up versions takes many turns. . . . → Read More: Laccha Paratha

I tried making them with the frozen parottas available here and it came out really very well.I made an attempt with a few veggies and instead of green chillies i ve used chilly powder..This recipe is a mix of Chilly and Kothu parotta..[:P]…Vegetarians can avoid eggs and follow the rest. . . . → Read More: Chilly Parotta

Chapati or Chapatti, is a type of Indian flat bread popular among northern parts of India. This is a simple roti made with Whole wheat flour, salt, oil and water. Making them real soft is the tricky part and search engines just overflow with tips. As far as my verdict goes "eat them immediately after making", having them hot off the griddle is the only solution to have them soft. Ofcourse you can always store, reheat and eat, but they tend to become little chewy.
