Indian flatbread, widely consumed across South Asia & East Africa, made with whole wheat flour.


250 g whole wheat flour (and a few extra grams for smoothing the dough)
1 tsp salt
warm water


Step 1

Sift the flour and make a well in the center.

Step 2

Add the salt and knead, gradually adding water. The amount of water depends on the quality and type of flour.

Step 3

Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Place it in a bowl covered with a cloth and let it rest for two hours.

Step 4

After this time, flour your hands and divide the dough into eight parts. Shape them into balls.

Step 5

Form disks about 15 cm in diameter and 3 mm in height.

Step 6

Sprinkle a heavy-bottomed skillet with flour and heat it. Put a disk of dough in it and cook for 1 minute on each side, then remove from heat. Take the galette and, without burning yourself, pass it over the flames. The dough will puff up and brown in places.

Step 7

It should be eaten hot, possibly with butter.
