Yemeni Khobz Al Tawa

Chapathi is a hot favorite among the kids. I try a lot of varieties and  I make them quite often. This is one more dish that I now love to make for them.It is a little calorie dense taking into account the quantity of butter used, but it is okay for the kids to enjoy this once on a while.

This is the Yemeni flat bread that I made for Y for Yemen in the 30 day Culinary journey across the globe.

I served this along with the Yemeni Lentil soup and it tasted a lot like our Roti and Dal!This bread gets its name based on the method it is cooked - Tawa - Griddle. It is a popular fresh bread and it goes with any type of side dishes.


I used:
Adapted from here

Whole wheat flour- 2 cups
Salt as needed
Water as needed
Melted butter

Take the flour and salt in a bowl. Mix well and add water slowly and knead into a smooth and elastic dough. Cover and let it rest for half an hour.

Knead once again.Divide the dough into four balls and dust the work surface generously.Roll out a ball as thin as possible.

Drizzle melted butter [generously] and fold as shown.When each side is folded, drizzle butter and fold. Make a square shape and roll out the into a large square dusting flour on the work surface.

Heat a large griddle and cook the bread drizzling a generous amount of butter. When both the side show brown spots, remove from griddle and serve brushed with more butter.

I served this buttery deliciousness with Yemeni Lentil soup

It tasted a lot like our Butter Naan.The kids loved this combo..
