Wheat Porotta

Porotta is one of my all time favourite dish...especially those porottas which Achan(Dad) used to bring home when he comes back from office. Those were such wonderful days when I go home once a month from college hostel for 2 days stay at home. During those 2days, we used to go to beach at least once , have a biryani from the famous Sagar hotel or topform hotel... otherwise have porotta and chicken curry :) :) All that was many years ago..
Coming back to "Wheat Porotta"... Does the "wheat" porotta sounds healthy to you?? Think again :) It is a healthier version than the normal maida/flour porotta, but it still has a culprit in it. And this time is not maida but oil...

1. Aatta/Wheat flour - 4cups
2. Banana - 1 small or 1/2 big
3. Salt to taste
4. Oil - 1 to 2 tsp per porotta

  1. Mix salt with wheat flour
  2. Add banana, mash and mix well with flour
  3. Knead the above mixture adding water as per need.
  4. Knead well until dough is soft and feels like elastic.
  5. Wrap the dough in cling wrap and keep for 30 minutes.
  6. Divide dough in to balls ( ball size can be approximately golf ball size)
  7. Roll it into very thin rounds like chapathi, but thinner than chapathi.
  8. Spread  1-1.5tsp of oil on one side of chapathi.
  9. Fold it as shown in the picture and roll it.
  10. Flatten the roll using your fingers
  11. Heat a tawa and cook porotta in medium flame for 2-3 minutes on each side or until porotta is cooked.

Wheat porotta is ready to be served.Serve porotta with chicken curry or any other spicy curries.. :)
