Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa

Indian Flat breads spiced, stuffed, fried or plain, all are staple breakfast breads in my home. As a child, I often used to wonder, how my mother rolls so good round flat breads. Now I know how :) But I had fun time learning this skill. When I was learning to roll breads, my brother used to stand in the kitchen and laugh at me all the time. He often said that I dance when rolling bread, bread is not rolling, I roll myself to make it round :) ha ha ha. If you ask him today and he will still say that I dance when I roll the bread ;).

Indian bread can have N number of fillings or seasoning added to them to make'em suitable for your taste. Green onions (scallions) are my special favorite for their mild sweet onion flavor.

To save time, knead the dough at night and in morning just roll the breads, shallow fry'em and enjoy delicious, filling breakfast with goodness of greens and whole wheat.
