Today I tried the pita bread recipe from Jai and Bee. The recipe is fool proof and yes I got around 50% puff rate ;)(Thats great with my OTG). But where did I gave up ? I have the basic model OTG and making around 12 pita breads would take a loooong time. For baking a single bread it took me around 10 minutes. I realized when I baked the second one. So for a sample round I baked five breads (For each one in the family) and what did I do with the rest ? I tried to make phulkas with the dough. Please don’t laugh but I did. Made thin Phulkas with the dough and toasted for 3 seconds in a hot tava turning only once. Then placed it on the stove top. Wow! The bread rose up wonderfully. I should say 70% puff rate! But the taste was simply wonderful. When I pretended to serve them as Phulkas to my father after tearing the first piece his eyebrows rose up. After tasting it he said “Excellent ultra soft Phulkas” (he didn’t realize the yeast in it).Yeah now you can make Phulkas with this whole wheat pita bread dough. Have it with u’re favorite gravy. The only condition is the gravy should be thick and not watery at all.
I served them with spicy mushroom curry.
