Flaky Wholemeal Bread Recipe

Flaky Wholemeal Bread Recipe

Ingredients :

1 1/2 cups fine wholemeal flour

1 1/2 cups plain white flour

1 1/2 cups salt

6-8 tablespoons ghee

1 cup water

Extra ghee for cooking


Method :

Sieve the wholemeal flour, white flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add in 1 tablespoon of the ghee. Mix in water and knead the dough before covering with clear plastic and set aside for an hour. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each into a smooth ball. Melt the ghee in a pan over low heat and cool slightly. Roll each ball on a lightly floured board into  a very thin circular shape. Pour 2 teaspoons of the melted ghee into the center and spread lightly. With a knife, make a cut from the center of each circle to the outer edge. Starting at the cut edge, roll the dough closely into a cone shape. Pick it up, press the apex of the cone and the base towards each other and flatten slightly. You will now have a small, roughly circular lump of dough again. Lightly flour the board again and roll out the dough very gently, taking care not to press too hard and let the air out at the edges. The parathas should be as round as possible, but not as thinly rolled as the first time. Cook on a hot griddle liberally greased with extra ghee, turning parathas and spreading with more ghee, until they are golden brown. Serve hot with grilled kebabs.
