2 c Wholewheat bread
5 ea Garlic cloves, crushed
1 ts Carom seeds*
1/2 c Vegetable oil
1 c Warm water
1/4 c Flour for dusting
In a large bowl, mix the flour, garlic, carom seeds, salt, 1 tb oil &
water until a dough is formed. Kead for 7 to 10 minutes. Cover & set
aside for 20 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 equal portions & roll each into a smooth ball
into a flatcake. Dust occasionally to prevent sticking. Heat an iron
griddle, brush with 1 ts oil & fry each side for 2 to 3 minutes,
brushing on more oil when turning the bread. Remove & keep warm.
Repeat till all the bread has been cooked.
