Indian Breads

I thought making Indian breads was hard. Turns out I was wrong.

  • 1 cup of wholemeal or bread flour
  • 1/3 cup of warm water
  • 2 teaspoons of oil

Mix it all together and kneed for 5-10 minutes (or cheat and use a mixer with a dough hook)  then rest in a bowl for an hour covered with a wet cloth. Divide into 12 and roll out into 5 inch discs then:

  • Deep fry for pooris
  • Dry roast in a pan for chapattis
  • Fry with a little ghee or oil for parathas

Serve with chutneys and pickles or a curry. Ommm nommm.

Poori, paratha and chapatti

Clockwise from the top: Poori, paratha, chapatti.
