On a flat surface, roll each ball into a flat round bread with a rolling pin. The flat bread should be approximately three to four millimeters in thickness. You may use some dry whole wheat flour to prevent the bread from sticking to the rolling surface and pin.
Cook the flat bread on a skillet on medium heat. Check in a minute to see if the bread surface on the lower side of the skillet is turning brown. Turn the bread over and allow to cook until light brown patches are seen. Add a tsp of oil and turn over. Turn it over once again when it is browning more.
Place cooked bread on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Serve hot with a cup of tea or yogurt.
You may eat it cold as well.
Each serving consists of two pieces of flat bread. Serves 8.
Number of Servings: 8
