Recipe Ingredients for Phulka


Ingredients:
2 cups wheat flour
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup warm water
1/6 cup wheat Flour for dusting and rolling

Recipe Directions for Phulka

  1. Method:

  2. Mix salt and flour. Add warm water and start mixing dough and knead.

  3. Gather dough in to a ball. Cover with damp kitchen towel or a plastic film. Let it rest 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.

  4. Divide the dough into 12 small balls. Roll dough out to form a 5" diameter disc about the thickness of a Dime (10 coin).

  5. Heat the griddle (Tawa). The bread is cooked in three steps.

  6. Put the rolled bread on the griddle, Use a turner to lift a corner to see that the underside has a few brown spots.

  7. Turn it over and let it cook. You will notice a steam bubble trapped in dough. Again use a turner to lift a corner to see that the underside has a brown spots.

  8. Turn it over. Press with a clean dry rag as the steam bubble will get larger and larger to encircle the whole area.

  9. If the dough is too sticky, add about 1 Table spoon of flour. If the dough is too hard, add up to one Tablespoon of water (one teaspoon at a time) to get the right consistency.

  10. Pinch dough to make one bread and form it into a ball. Now flatten it to form a patty about 2" to 3" round. This will guide you in maintaining the round shape when using the rolling pin. Always apply rolling pin from the middle of the patty to outwards.

  11. Always use rolling pin on one side of the dough. Do NOT turn the dough over and roll again, it is called re-rolling. Avoid re-rolling. If you look at the cross-section of a finished puffed flat bread, you will notice one side is thicker than the other side. The thinner side corresponds to the side which was in contact with the rolling pin. We will call it the skin surface

  12. Put a test bread about the thickness of a Dime (10 coin) on the Tawa. If the bread sticks to griddle, you need to increase heat. If the bread gets brown spots too quick, it is too hot. It should develop brown spots on the underside in 30 seconds.
