Roti Prata
Here the my version how I prepare my prata. Frozen prata are now wide available in almost everywhere in USA but I still perfer to make them at home once in while...

Serving Size: 4

2 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of wheat Flour
2 egg white beaten well
1/4 cup hot milk
1/4tsp of baking soda
1/4tsp of sugar
salt to taste
oil as required

Preparation Methods:
Mix together all purpose and wheat flour in a large bowl. Add oil and the rest of the ingredients and make a soft dough. At first the dough will be sticky -don't panic , keep kneading till the dough become soft and pat the dough hard on a clean surface.
Cover the dough with a wet cloth for at least 4 hrs.

Before making the prata, knead the dough once again with hands.On a clean surface, rub oil. Make small balls off the dough and roll them out like chapatis but in oval shape.
Make pleats so as to look like a hand made paper fan. Roll it holding on one end to form around to get the layers formed. Then roll out to make it like a chapati.

Make sure to roll only on one side with the chapati stick. Heat a heavy based frying pan or griddle on a medium heat.

Place the prata on the griddle on low flame till the prata is ready.Once done, use both hands and pat on the sides of the prata to get the layers.
