Indian Fried Bread

Yield: makes five servings, one bread each

The slightly puffed bread is typical of Indian cuisine.

1 cup less 1 tablespoon whole wheat or white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided

How to prepare
In mixing bowl combine flour and salt; using electric mixer at slow speed, add water to flour mixture, beating until mixture resembles coarse meal. Form dough into ball and on smooth dry surface (not wood), knead for 5 min.; cover with clean damp paper towel or plastic wrap and let rest for 20 min.
Cut dough into five equal pieces and shape each into a ball; roll each ball to as thin a circle as possible. In eight-inch nonstick skillet, heat 12 teaspoons oil; carefully transfer one circle to skillet and cook, shaking pan constantly and turning dough frequently until bread is puffed and golden, about 3 min. (dough will puff up into a balloon shaped bread). Transfer bread to warm oven (200°) and repeat procedure with remaining dough and oil. Serve hot.
