KAARE MIRCHA WARI KOKI / CRISPY FLATBREAD SPICED WITH BLACK PEPPER


This is the most preferred breakfast in Sindhi homes during winters. Crispy koki flavoured with crushed black pepper and cumin seeds with a cup of cardamom tea is sheer bliss. You can carry it during your travels too.



Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour ....... 2 cups
Coarsely crushed black pepper ... 2-3 tsps
Cumin seeds ........................... 2 tsps
Salt ............................ to taste
Ghee or oil .......  as needed


Method:
1. Take the flour in a large bowl or thali.
2. Add the coarsely crushed black pepper, cumin seeds, salt and 2 tbsps of ghee or oil.
3. Mix it well. It should form a lump when you press a small amount in your fist. This is the tip for testing the right amount of moin (ghee) added to it.
4. Knead it adding water as needed to make a tight dough.
5. Roll out the koki.
6. Roast it on a griddle on medium flame spooning a little ghee to make it crispy.
7. Serve it with pickle. curd or masala chai.

  12. Coincidentally, as I am reading this recipe, I am eating Kali Miri-wali Mutter Paneer. A simple spice can change the flavour profile of the roti by so much. Great recipe, Shobha-ji!
