- a little sugar
- a little salt
- oil (or ghee)
- Mix flour, sugar and salt with water and knead to form a smooth soft dough, divide into tennis ball size portion, rub with 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.
- Egg Plants - cubed and boiled
- Potatoes - cubed and boiled
- Curry powder
- Onion - finely sliced
- Coconut milk or yoghurt
- First fry the onion in oil till soft and brown, add curry powder and fry till fragrant.
- Add stock and the rest of the ingredients, last the coconut milk. Season with salt if necessary.
