8 oz flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 Sieve flour. Remove a handful for rolling and kneading. Add salt,
baking powder and bicarbonate of soda to flour and mix thoroughly.
2 Add enough water to make a firm dough and mix thoroughly. Knead in
basin. Cover and leave to stand for 20 minutes.
3 Heat tawah. Cut dough into 6 pieces and roll out each piece to 1/2
inch thick. Place on tawah and cook on both sides for 6 minutes.
4 Pull tawah aside and lower burner. Cook roti on direct heat. Turn
and cook on other side.

boulanger (bygan) choka.

before the water is mixed in.
