Bajra is always served with an hour. Cover and leave to rest for extra helpings of ghee, as it is said to be very dry. And the ideal daal with this is dhuli urad ki daal. Break the dough up into 10-12 rounds and roll into 1/8” rounds. Brush rounds with ghee and sprinkle some poppy seeds. Lift one edge and fold 1/3. Fold the opposite edge to come up above the folded edge. Smear a little more ghee over the folded part and sprinkle some poppy seeds too.

Matar ka Parantha
INGREDIENTS
2 cups whole-wheat flour 1 cup water dry flour to help with rolling small bowl of water to dip fingers in while working For the filling grind together 1 cup shelled and boiled greens peas 1/8 tsp asafetida-powder 1 1/2 tsp roasted cumin seeds 1/2 tsp chilli powder

METHOD
Make a dough with the flour and water and make small balls of it. After you have flattened the round balls between, press flat a little more with your fingers, to make rounds. Pinch the edges to about one-third way towards the center, so that the edges are thinner than the center, and form a sort of a cup. Place a tbsp of the ingredients ground together in the center of the cup. Dip your fingers in the water so that any filling sticking to them is washed off, and wet the edges before bringing them together to enclose the filling. Pinch to seal. Roll out to smoothen and then dip in dry flour to coat well before rolling again. On a surface dusted with dry flour, roll out the parantha as thinly as you can without tearing it, as you would roll a chapatti. More care is needed with this, as the wet filling inside causes it to tear more easily. Heat the griddle till very hot. Lower the heat and place one parantha on the hot griddle. When the edges start lifting, make a trail of ghee along the outer edge of the parantha, so that some ghee trickles under it. Then smear some ghee on the surface.

Roti / Phulkas
INGREDIENTS
2 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup water some dry flour to help in rolling an iron griddle (tawa)

When underside is a golden brown, increase heat and turn the parantha over. Lower heat and cook on the other side. Take off when both sides are brown. METHOD Serve hot. Knead the flour into a soft smooth dough with water (a finger pushed in presses without much pressure) and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes. Shape into smooth balls and flatten a bit. On a well dusted surface, roll these into 1/8” thick rounds. Place the griddle over the fire, and heat till a drop of water thrown over it, evaporates immediately with a sizzling sound. Place a rolled chapatti over the hot griddle and as soon as the edges start rising lift it with a pair of tongs and place over a direct flame, with the uncooked side down. It should start puffing up immediately. When fully puffed, or a spotty brown on the underside, flip over to cook the other side. Take it off the flame and serve hot, with a brushing of ghee
