Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Breads
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

4 cups 250g / 8.8ozUnbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons 10mlBaking soda
1 tablespoon 15mlCream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSea salt
1/2 cup 118mlWater
2 tablespoons 30mlEgg, beaten
1 cup 237mlSoymilk or low-fat milk
2 tablespoons 30mlCanola oil
1/4 cup 59mlOlive oil or melted ghee
2   Garlic cloves - minced

Recipe Instructions

Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside. Whisk water and egg . Mix egg, soy milk and canola oil in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to soymilk mixture and stir until dough forms a ball. Knead briefly, place in a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Let dough rest in a warm, draft-free area for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly oil baking sheets. Saute garlic in olive oil for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Lightly coat hands with vegetable oil and knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 3 minutes. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Flatten each ball with hands, roll into an oval about 3/8" thick and stretch ends to form a teardrop shape (wide at base and tapering to a point on top). Place on baking sheets and brush with garlic oil. Bake on middle rack for 6 to 8 minutes.


Hint: After baking, place under broiler to brown.
