How to serve Indian bread fry?

The best way to serve this Indian-style bread fry is topping it with your favorite ingredients. Here are a few to name:

  • Shredded meat: If you have leftover meat, you can enjoy it over this fried bread. I particularly love it with shredded pulled beef or pork, but you can try it with chicken or turkey as well.

Bread Fry – The recipe

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Resting time: 2 hours
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Total time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings: 2 to 3


  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ¾ cup hot water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • A pinch turmeric
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Add all-purpose flour, baking powder, turmeric, cumin, and salt to a large-sized mixing bowl. Mix well.
  2. Now slowly pour hot water into the flour and mix using either a wooden spoon or your hands.
  3. Knead until you get a sticky dough. You can add more water to adjust the consistency of the dough. If the dough seems too sticky, add more flour.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the dough and spread it over the surface of the dough to prevent it from drying.
  5. Cover the dough and place it in a cool, dry place for at least 2 hours to overnight until it rises.
  6. Once the dough rises, divide it into equal-sized balls.
  7. Roll it into a rectangular shape until it is very thin. Remember, the thinner the rolled dough, the better.
  8. In a pan, heat oil. Once it heats up, add the rolled dough into the oil and fry it for at least a minute until it turns golden brown. Flip the side to cook it again.
  9. Take it out of the pan onto a kitchen towel to get rid of excess oil.
  10. Serve topped with your favorite toppings.
