Recipe of Roti Prata! :)

Ingredients: 

  • 12 oz. / 375 g. wheat or plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • a little sugar
  • 1/2 cup boiling water, to bind
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 6 oz. / 180 g. ghee or oil

Method:

  • Sift flour and salt together.
  • Rub 1 oz. of ghee into the sifted flour. Add boiling water, sugar and milk gradually and knead well (about 10 – 15 mins) to form a smooth soft dough, divide into tennis ball size portion (8-10 equal portions), rub with remaining ghee or oil, cover and let it rest for a couple of hours.
  • Oil the work top and work each ball into a very thin sheet – first flatten with your oiled palms, then thin further by pulling the edges (professionals do it by flipping the dough in the air in a circular motion), adding enough oil to prevent sticking. Oil the surface and fold into a square (egg can be added before folding).
  • Alternatively, you can thin out the sheet, oil and roll it up, coil in up like a sea shell, flatten and oil again and reapeat the flattening one or two more times.
  • Fry in a oiled pan on both sides till brown spots appear and crispy. Crush by pressing it together with both hands and serve immediately.
  • The bread can be eaten on its own with a sprinkle of sugar, or with any meat or vegetable curry.
