Phulka aka puffy wheat bread

indian wheat puffed bread

New thing: cooking bread over an open flame

FROM: Classic Indian Cooking by Julie Sahni

This was one of the most interesting to make so far. You only need flour and water, then knead it into dough. Then form small (6 in) flat patties which are cooked for about 30 seconds on a v. hot griddle. Immediately after the bread is finished cooking on the griddle you throw it on a flame and if done properly it puffs up. It is pretty cool.
