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
- Add all-purpose flour, baking powder, turmeric, cumin, and salt to a large-sized mixing bowl. Mix well.
- Now slowly pour hot water into the flour and mix using either a wooden spoon or your hands.
- 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.
- Drizzle olive oil over the dough and spread it over the surface of the dough to prevent it from drying.
- Cover the dough and place it in a cool, dry place for at least 2 hours to overnight until it rises.
- Once the dough rises, divide it into equal-sized balls.
- Roll it into a rectangular shape until it is very thin. Remember, the thinner the rolled dough, the better.
- 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.
- Take it out of the pan onto a kitchen towel to get rid of excess oil.
- Serve topped with your favorite toppings.
