Pão indiano – vegano

Ingredientes

  • 1 copo de farinha de trigo (pode ser integral) peneirado, bem fino
  • 1/2 c chá sal
  • 1 cs de azeite
  • 1/2 copo de água

Preparo

Numa tigela misture a farinha com o sal, depois adicione metade da água e misture bem com a ponta dos dedos até formar uma farofa grossa. Depois coloque o óleo e misture novamente. Vai acrescentando o restante da água aos poucos e sovando. Não deixe nada grudado nas bordas da tigela. A massa fica um pouco grudenta.

Deixe descansar por uns 15min. Numa bancada enfarinhada coloque a massa e faça tipo uma cobra e corte em 8 pedaços. Amasse com um rolo cada pedaço e leve a frigideira até começar a formar bolhas de cada lado e depois (segure com um pegador de gelo) leve diretamente ao fogo para inflar e terminar o cozimento.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat spelt, whole wheat pastry or white whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 cups unbleached white flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 to 2/3 tsp salt
  • 2.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons non dairy yogurt or use thick coconut milk or Aquafaba
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • flour for rolling
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, whisk the flours, salt, baking powder and soda.
  2. Add yogurt and oil and mix in.
  3. Add water and knead for a minute or 2 until a slightly sticky dough forms. Cover and let sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Add a tablespoon of flour if needed and knead for a minute until smooth.
  5. Roll out the dough into a log and using a pizza cutter cut into 12 to 14 equal parts. Roll each into a ball and store under a towel while you roll out the flatbreads. Roll each ball into about a 7 inch flatbread. I usually roll out the next flatbread when the first is cooking on the stove top. For baking. I roll out a half batch, bake, then roll the other half and bake.
  6. Cook on the stove top:
  7. Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, place a rolled out flatbread on the skillet. Cover with a lid and cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles form. Remove cover, flip and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden.
  8. Bake in oven:
  9. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F / 230ºc and place a large pizza stone or thick baking sheet in the oven to heat up for at least 20 minutes.

  10. Place the rolled out breads 3 to 4 at a time depending on the size of the stone. Bake for 3 to 6 minutes or until the breads puff up and get just about golden on top. Switch the oven to high broil if your oven runs less hot and pita breads take too long to puff up.
  11. Remove carefully from the oven and place the next batch on the stone. The baked breads will puff up like a pita bread if they were rolled out evenly. These puffed breads can be used as pita pockets.
