We all have some childhood memories that involve food. If you ever ask me about my childhood memories that has to be the one where I used to get robbed by my friends whenever Mom gave me Koki in my lunch box. Gladly, I learned after a few years that this would continue to happen and I cannot stop my friends so I started taking an extra Tiffin just in case my friends eat all of it, I still am left with some for myself. What to do Koki is just so brilliant.
The Sindhi Koki is a magnificent roti prepared with wheat flour perked up with a large array of flavours like onions, coriander, cumin seeds and green chillies that enhance the overall taste.
- 2 cups wheat flour
- 1 onion large finely chopped
- 3 green chillies finely chopped
- coriander leaves finely chopped
- 1 tsp. Red chilli powder
- 1 tsp. cumin seeds
- 3 tbsp. ghee or oil
- Salt to taste
- Oil for shallow frying
- Finely chop the onions and coriander.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough using enough water and drizzle 3 tablespoon of oil in it.
- Once done, take small portions from the dough and make small balls from it. Using a rolling pin, start rolling each ball thinly like a paratha and make sure the edges are thin. prick it using soft (other) side of the knife. (Shown in the picture above)
- Heat the tawa, grease it with ghee/oil and cook each circle, on a slow flame, using ghee/oil, till it turns golden brown in colour and crisp from both the sides
- Repeat for remaining dough.
- Serve hot with Dahi/Pickle/ Papad or Tea
