Serve this whole-wheat bread from the Gujarat region of India as you would pita bread. It's good for dipping, and tastes great all by itself.


  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Combine the flour, salt, oil, milk, and half the water in a bowl. Mix using a wooden spoon or fingers. Add more water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time until the dough forms a ball. Knead the dough with lightly oiled hands for 10 minutes. The dough should be fairly firm.
  2. Allow the dough to rest, covered with a dish cloth, for 15 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 to 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a round 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Heat a flat griddle or large skillet over moderate heat. Cook the dough, one piece at a time, pressing it down occasionally with a spatula, until cooked and lightly browned on the bottom. Turn the dough and repeat. The dough may balloon slightly during cooking.
  5. Repeat with remaining pieces of dough.

Makes 4 to 6 pieces.
