Pleated Wheat Porotta



Ingredients
Wheat Flour: 2 cups
Curd/yogurt: 1tbsp
Egg: 1
Warm Water: needed (u will need around ¾ cup)
Salt: needed
Olive oil/any refined oil: needed

Method Of Preparation
In a bowl add wheat flour, salt, egg and curd.
Mix this well with hand, then add warm water as needed to prepare a smooth dough. Knead the dough for some time and apply 2tbsp olive oil and keep the dough in an air tight bowl for 1 hour.
After an hour take the dough and take the small ball from it, dust with flour and flatten to a thin round shape.
Apply oil on top of it.
Pleat it like a saree pleat (as shown in picture)

Then roll it into a round shape.Apply oil on top of it.

Flatten it to a round shape with a roller or you can do it with the hand too. (be careful not to make it too thin, let it be 1/4 “ thick, if you make it thin the porotta goes hard after cooking)

Heat a tawa, sprinkle some oil on it, place the flattened porotta on to it, Flip and cook till you get it done.


When 3 or 4 porottas are done,place them in a flat surface and holding them between hands ,beat the hands together.(Just like clapping,but 3-4 porottas are between).do not beat them soo hard such as you break the porottas..:)
We are doing this, just to seperate the different layers.Remember this does not add anything to the taste.
Serve hot with desired curry.
