Flat bread / roti with sourdough starter and carrot
Another experiment with dough. This time I tried to make flat bread with grated carrots and coconut milk. It turns out very fluffy because of the overnight leavening agent/sourdough starter. Carrot gives a bit sweetness taste.
Feed your sourdough starter overnight. Using 5 tbsp starter from the fridge. Place in a higher bowl, add 2 tbsp whole wheat flour and 2 tbsp water. Mix it well, cover it loosely and leave it overnight.
The next morning, the starter will be hungry. Add 2 tbsp whole wheat flour and 2 tbsp water. Leave it for 1 hour, it will double in volume. It is the time to use it.
In a mixing bowl, add the 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 tbsp salt, 3 tbsp coconut milk, starter (all of them). Mix them well and form a dough. Let it autolyse for 15 minutes.
Add the grated carrot. It will be a bit wet because of the juice of carrot. Add 1-2 tbsp flour. Knead the dough for 8 minutes. Let it ferment for 1 hour.
The dough will be double in volume. On your kitchen counter, sprinkle some flour. Transfer the dough to your counter, easily roll the dough and divide it into 6-7 portions.
Roll the dough into round shape and around 1/2 cm thickness. Smear little oil on top of the dough.
Heat the non-stick pan. Place the dough with the oil side facing the pan. Cook it for 1-2 minutes. Smear little oil on the other side of the dough that facing us. Then, flip the dough and cook for another minutes.
Transfer the cooked flat bread on the plate. Cook the same way for another dough.
Enjoy the flat bread with any curry or salad or just enjoy it plain.
