Home-Made Prata

Home-Made Prata
Phew!!! At latest I managed to prepare prata at home. My hubby have being trying to makes these at home for a very long time since we moved to Dallas but somethings always seems to go wrong. A week ago he found a recipe from another blog and want to try that out and in the recipe it was mentioned to get some eggs to the dough. Since it was Thursday and we don't eat non-veggie but he never listen.He prepare the dough without add the eggs and the result was dry and hard prata. I have made that prata recipe before back in Owasso using wheat flour -came out really well. Check the recipe out: Finally I got the right recipe from Ammu's Kitchen and it came out perfect. A big thanks to her for sharing her recipe with other bloggers like me. This time I have followed the recipe accordingly as mention..

Serving Size: Makes 15

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
1tbsp sugar
salt to taste
enough oil and water for dough

Preparation Methods:
Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add oil and knead till the dough become soft and pat the dough hard on a clean surface. Apply 2tbsp oil to the dough nad leave it aside for about 4 hours or so.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.
Use your hand press each dough to form a circle or you can also roll out to make it like a chapati.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.Transfer to a plate and serve hot with your choice of curries.
