I served Lachha parathas with Chennai chicken kurma  (refer link https://mysouthernflavours.wordpress.com/2013/11/02/chennai-chicken-kurma/ )

 

Hints:

  • Lachha parathas , goes well with both veg and non-veg curries / kurmas .

  • Resting the dough, helps gluten formation and active the enzymes that transfers into sugar (which enhance its taste).
