Savoury spiced flatbread with yogurt (India)

Ein knusprig, blättriges indisches Frühstücksbrot, das mit raffinierter Würzung überzeugen konnte… Toll der Kontrast zwischen den säuerlichen getrockneten Granatapfelkernen und den -süßlichen erdigen Noten, der weiteren Gewürze!

Für den Teig habe ich ein wenig mehr Wasser als angegeben gebraucht. Vom Zeitaufwand eher was fürs Sonntagsfrühstück.

Masala koki are savory flatbreads eaten in northern India. They are mixed with aromatic spices, onions, and chilies, and served with yogurt.

Ingredients (makes 4 koki):

1 cup (120 g) whole wheat (wholemeal) flour, plus more for dusting

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

1 small onion, diced

1 small hot green chili, finely chopped

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon anardana (dried pomegranate seeds), ground or whole

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon white sesame seeds, toasted

5 tablespoons cilantro (coriander) leaves, finely chopped

1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves (optional)

3 tablespoons melted ghee, oil, or butter, plus more for pan-frying

Yogurt, for serving


In a medium bowl, combine the flours, salt, onion, green chili, cumin, anardana, black pepper, cilantro (coriander), fenugreek leaves (if using), and ghee, butter, or oil. Knead until you get a crumbly dough, then gradually add 3–4 tablespoons water and stir until a firm dough comes together. Knead in the bowl until it comes together in a firm ball. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions, dust with flour, and roll into balls.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Flatten each ball slightly and shape it into a round about 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter and 1/8 inch (6 mm) thick. Place in the hot pan and cook on both sides until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Make small slits into the koki throughout the cooking process to vent heat from the pan and help the koki cook all the way through. Brush both sides with ghee or oil and continue to cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining koki.

Transfer to a plate. Serve with yogurt.
