03/22/2012: Phulka / Chapathi / Roti - Phulkas so called because they puff up with steam while being cooked. One of the daily bread for most of the Indians that tastes yummy and also healthier. Usually one applies butter or ghee liberally on either sides to give more taste to it.
Preparation is very simple. Knead Wheat Flour with enough Water and Salt (to taste) into a soft, pliable dough. Set it aside for 30 mins. Dough should be soft yet firm. Make lemon sized balls and roll them out thin to approximately 6 inches in diameter. Toss the dough in dry flour while rolling to prevent it from sticking while rolling. Put phulka on the hot griddle/skillet. Cook for about 1 minute, until the top starts to look dry and small bubbles start to form. Flip and cook the other side for about 30 seconds until small bubbles form. Then turn over to get the phulka puffed up. Serve hot with curry, curd or chutney.
