Veechu Parotta Recipe is a very famous bread in Sri Lanka. The bread/parotta is mainly made from maida or all purpose flour but in this recipe we have used a combination of maid and whole wheat flour to make it healthier. It is kneaded to a very soft and sticky dough which is then rolled and pressed using your hand to form a thin dough that is then folded to create many air pockets.
By folding the parotta you will develop a soft and flaky texture to the bread. The bread is then cooked on a griddle on a low to medium flame till it is toasted well and evenly cooked.
