with a damp cloth. Keep this aside for 4 hours to allow it to rise.
Grease palms well and punch dough in the middle and knead until soft
and elastic. Cover it again and keep aside for 10 minutes.
To make the
of a lump of dough. Flatten the ball. Place it on the prepared floured
surface. Use a rolling pin to roll it out into a circle about 2-3
inches in diameter. Now fold the dough over itself. Now roll it out
into a long log. Then roll it around itself into a spiral. (Like a
Cinnabon...hmmm... yummm ) Now flatten the spiral and
roll again on a lightly floured surface until about 5 - 6 inches in
diameter. Roast on hot griddle, tandoor or even a hot grill till
golden spots appear. Or shallow fry on griddle.
Serve hot with
your favorite gravy, vegetables, dals, etc.
