Sindhi food is a new cuisine to me. This months tried n tasted event is from Alkas Sindhi Rasoi. As I got this opportunity I also realized sindhi food is influenced by an ancient beautifull civilization of people who lived near the river sind.
Alka is having a huge collection of recipes, I have bookmarked many and one of them is this Satpuro Phulko and I am glad to have tried it.This Satpuro Phulko is a flaky wholewheat flatbread that can be had with any curry."Sat" means seven and "puro" means layered.Along with this I made channa masala which was a tasty combination.
- 2 cup whole wheat flour(atta)
- 4 tsp oil
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
Mix all the above ingredients nicely ,add little by little water (approx 1 cup water) to make smooth firm dough like for making paratha .Knead it well to a fine ball n cover it. Let it sit for 15 min.
After 15 min again knead it for a while n divide the dough in 5 equal portions,roll each portion in a ball and flatten it with the help of rolling pin into a circle of 6 inch diameter.
Take one strip n roll it like rolling a ribbon ,after that put this roll on the next strip n roll it again.
Press it lightly n with rolling pin again give it a nice round shape,the thickness should be like paratha.
Heat a frying pan(tawa), use half tablespoon of oil per side n cook till both the sides turn golden brown
Your Satpura phulka is ready serve it with any curry ur choice.
