The flatbreads that are made by using milk instead of water for kneading the dough are called "Dushmee". Based on my grandmothers "Methichi Dushmi", I made cilantro flatbread yesterday.
Kothimbeerichi Dushmi - Count 12
1 bunch cilantro, rinsed, plucked, minced
2 cups wheat flour
2 tbsp besan/chickpea flour
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/4 tsp owa/Ajwain
1 tsp oil
Milk as needed to bind the dough
Oil for roasting
1. Mix all the ingredients till 1 tsp oil.
2. Using milk as needed, knead into dough. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
3. Make about 12 uniform balls
4. Using flour as needed for dredging, roll into a flatbread.
5. Roast on a hot tawa/griddle/pan, using oil as needed so brown spots appear on both the sides.
6. Serve with pickle & vegetable of your choice.
1. The total number of flatbreads will vary depending on the diameter and thickness of the flatbreads.
2. You can add ginger-garlic paste to the dough to enhance the flavor.
