How to make Pudina Lehsun Laccha Paratha Recipe - Mint Garlic Layered Paratha
To prepare Pudina Lehsun Laccha Paratha in a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, garlic, and mint leaves.
Add milk, oil, salt and water little at a time and knead to make a smooth firm dough. Drizzle some oil on the dough and knead to make the dough smooth.
Divide the dough into large lemon size balls.
Preheat a skillet over medium heat. If you are using a cast iron skillet, then grease the skillet well and allow it to preheat.
Keep some flour aside for dusting while rolling the dough. Shape each dough portion into a round ball, press it between the palm of your hands.
Dust the dough with flour and roll it into a 6-inch diameter circle. Smear some ghee or oil on this rolled out the dough. Dust some flour over the ghee. This flour and ghee will help the Pudina Lehsun Laccha split itself into layers.
Begin folding the Pudina Lehsun Laccha dough like an accordion, similar to a saree pleat. Start from one end of the dough and reach the end. The dough is essentially made into a pleat. Once you have stacked up all the pleats one over the other, roll the dough into a swiss roll.
Flatten the pleated swiss roll between the palm of your hands, dust in flour and roll into a 4 to 5-inch diameter circle. You will be able to see the layers very clearly.
Place the rolled layered Pudina Lehsun Laccha on the preheated skillet. Cook on medium heat on both sides for a few seconds, then smear ghee and cook until golden brown and cooked through completely.
Proceed the same way with the remaining portions of the paratha dough.
