Mauritian Farata Recipe

Farata is the Mauritian version of Indian paratha, a layered, flaky, pan-fried flatbread. It consists of three basic ingredients: flour, water, and oil.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE MAURITIAN FARATA RECIPE

In a mixing bowl, rub melted butter into flour using your hand until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Gradually add the warm water to form a soft dough. Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rest for at least 15 minutes.

Next, divide the dough into eight equal portions and roll each one into a ball before rolling out into pans with a rolling pin.

Brush the pans with melted butter and fold it in half to form a half-circle. Brush with melted butter once more and fold into a triangle. Make a flat layer out of the triangular shape.

Under low heat, grease a hot griddle or tava (frying pan), then place the rolled bread on it.

Cook for about a minute on each side – it may be necessary to turn them over more frequently to ensure thorough cooking and avoid burning. Serve hot with butter or any other dishes.
