Indian Flatbreads: Roti & Paratha

June 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Roti and Paratha – India’s favorite flatbreads 
An everyday staple for more than a billion people, the essential, all-purpose roti is India’s favorite flatbread and a perfect introduction to the country’s famously rich and diverse bread-baking culture. Requiring no oven, no yeast, and no mixers, rotis are simple, round flatbreads made from a whole wheat dough, and cooked on a dry, hot griddle. However without the right technique and ingredients, the humble roti, like a good baguette, can be unforgiving and tricky to master. In this hands-on class, you will learn how to make perfectly round sprouted wheat rotis as well as its rich, chewy, flaky variation – the paratha – that can either be enriched with ghee and layered like a croissant or stuffed with delicious fillings such as spicy potatoes, meats, cheese or vegetables. You will also learn how to make spiced wheat-free flatbreads using nutritious, whole grain flours like purple barley as well as a dessert flatbread stuffed with sweetened lentils.  No forks or knives needed – Indian flatbreads are a hands-only operation!

He grew up in a family of Ayurvedic healers, in a culture that believed that food is sacred, a blessing and a gift, and that the simple acts of cutting, chopping and stirring are graces that can bring one peace and calm. Pankaj has pursued his passion for baking, cooking and serving good food in the kitchens of Cheese Board Pizza and Three Stone Hearth in Berkeley and at Arizmendi Bakery in San Francisco.
