Want to learn how to make Indian flatbread from scratch in just minutes? 

Whole wheat flatbreads that are thin and puffed (Phulka Roti) or stuffed (Paratha) are very popular in the Indian subcontinent. Phulka’s are eaten along with tasty main dishes. Paratha’s can be stuffed with potato, seasonal vegetables, leafy greens and eaten as a full meal with some tomato chutney.

Then we will demonstrate how to make whole wheat flatbread dough, and collectively make it. We will then make the filing for the Potato Stuffed Flatbread (Aloo Paratha) and the Spinach Stuffed Flatbread (Palak Paratha). We will then demonstrate making a couple of Aloo Parathas, Palak Parathas and Phulkas (thin & puffed flatbread). Then, we will invite participants to make one of each in pairs – the best way to learn is to do it yourself!
