Fennel Laccha Paratha

Fennel flavoured flaky fried bread

Hari says

Laccha means ring and these paratha are flavoured with fennel and then cooked on a round griddle pan. The aim is to get lots of different layers which can be done using a number of different methods. With this method I slice the rolled out dough with a sharp knife and then pull the dough together a bit like a rope and then roll it back up into a ball and roll it out again. The aim is to get the dough nice a soft so your paratha is soft, crispy and delicious.

Once its cooked on the tava (which talks some practice) its then scrunched in your hands to get all the layers visible.

Have fun making this one!
