    I love Malabar Paratha. I like to call this Parotta. A popular Kerala street food, this is a great alternative to flatbreads liek roti or paratha. It is similar to lachcha paratha, but made with all purpose flour instead of wheat.

    Thin layers of dough neatly stacked on top of the other and fried to crispy perfection makes this flatbread unlike any other. It is traditionally served with Vegetable Kurma, but honestly- it tastes brilliant with any spicy Indian side dish.   (more…)

    As long as we are talking about bread baking, you must know that it does not get any easier than these soft petit pains au lait rolls.

    These french milk bread rolls are pleasantly soft and spongy and an absolute delight to devour. Traditionally studded with pearl sugar, these rolls are meant to be had at breakfast or with chilled milk. However, if your taste buds call for something spicy, you can easy swap out the sugar for your favorite choice of herbs and spices, while retaining the dough and the process of shaping the rolls. The typical “tooth mark” on these rolls give them a differently gorgeous look.

    Although you can rely on all purpose flour to give you a spongy texture that we all love, it is recommended that you try to get your hands on some strong bread flour. And if you want an alternative, vital wheat gluten can help with the gluten content in the dough, thus making it elastic and spongy. Then again – if you are just starting out – don’t even bother. I used neither bread flour nor VWG, and I still found these rolls to be great.   (more…)
