Malabar parotta is a popular indian layered flatbread. This parotta is very similar to north indian laccha partha recipe. Both paratha's/parotta are layered and follow the same preparation of spiral and rolling. The major difference between these are that laccha paratha follows equal proportion of wheat and all purpose flour wheras malabar is entirely made by maida, thus making malabar parotta more stretchy.
