Nothing goes better with Indian food than some yummy Indian bread! I don’t have a clay oven, but in the absence of this one, this simple bread is the next best thing. Don’t use a fork and eat your food with the bread instead. So good!
This week I served this with Veggie Korma.
- 2 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp salt
- optional: olive oil for brushing
Combine the flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly add water and stir with a spoon, switching to (floured/oiled) hands once necessary. Continue adding water until you have a nice dough consistency – soft and pliable, but not sticky.
Divide the dough into 10 – 12 golf ball shaped balls. Cover until rolling so they don’t dry out.
Sprinkle a bit of flour on your rolling surface and rolling pin. Roll each ball into a small tortilla sized circle.
Heat a griddle on medium heat (no oil needed). Place one or two rolled out circles on the griddle, flipping after a minute or two or until it starts to brown. Cook the other side a bit more until it’s slightly browned. Remove from griddle and brush with olive oil, if you wish. Serve immediately. If saving some for later, reheat in an oven until warm.
