Salsa Loli

I don't know the exact difference between a Koki and a Loli. Koki is something my friend used to bring. Loli is something I read in Madhur Jaffrey's book World Vegetarian. and But I simplified it "American Desi way" as I used the leftover salsa from the Superbowl party. :-D

Salsa Loli
Salsa Flat bread inspired by Madhur Jaffrey's book World Vegetarian
1 cup wheat flour
1 tbsp wheat germs (optional)
1 tbsp flax seeds, ground (optional)
1/4 cup salsa from the bottle/jar (with tomatoes, onions, peppers and all that fun stuff!!)
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
salt to taste
water as needed to bind the dough
Oil for roasting

1. Mix flour, salt, wheat germs & ground flax seeds - if using.
2. Add salsa, cilantro and salt - remember salsa has salt but you will still need some more.
3. Mix without adding water. Get an idea about the moisture salsa has and then if needed, add water gingerly to bind the dough.
4. Add spoonful of oil. Knead well.
5. Heat a frying pan.
6. Make 7 balls. Roll into discs. Prick with a fork or a blunt knife.
7. Roast on the hot pan/tawa adding oil as necessary till brown spots start appearing on both sides.
8. Serve with achar, raita or dahi.

Note -
1. Instead of salsa, you can use minced onion, tomatoes & chilies and proceed.
