Gluten-free you know what that is? Must be coming out of "glue" multiplied by 10 times and it goes into your stomach and sticks everything up 😉 whatever that is
but before I even knew what gluten-free is I was already eating a lot of stuff that was gluten-free in the Indian cuisine at least we made something out of rice flour, and how do you knead the dough, how do you actually make something out of rice flour, do you cook it like rice and then, like, keep wondering what to do with it? do you make it like a pancake? No! To teach you that thing we got you a food expert, my own mother, who's been cooking for so many years, that I can't even remember May be as old as I was, plus, may be 15 years before And she's come here to make sure that I'm feeding our baby the way she fed me and turned me into a monstrous hungry creature, who eats all the time who's become like: "I need to eat, I need to cook, I need to make everyone else eat!" and when I became a monster she threw me out of the house and said: "Go get your own child, and you'll know what it's all about, bringing up a child and feeding good food to the baby!" So let me leave you with the food expert, she is the food Polizei *whispering* I once tried to knead the dough myself So I called my mom, and she said to me: boil the water and then just put rice flour in it I tried it and I ended up with a very liquidy dough that has more to do with making a pancake so, this is the real method that you will see now to a pot add two cups of boiling water and one cup of rice flour this is the ratio, more or less it depends on how much water you loose if you evaporate too much of it so make sure you don't bring it to such a boil that you loose half of water now, once you've started to add the flour, make sure you mix it nicely so that you don' end up with lumps in the dough now, these lumps are hard to get rid of and you bread might look like something else like a monstrous big bread you might throw it in the oven and just turn it into something else so, make sure that you don't end up with lumps in your dough at the end now, once you think the water is kind of nicely absorbed by the flour you have a nice big mass of dough you need to take it out, as much as you can handle with both your hands or one hand because you need to start kneading it now to make rice roti, or rice flatbread you need to show a lot of love and respect to this dough you need to put it in another pot, or a pan and start kneading it because the dough is still warm, don't burn your hands just cool it with some water and start kneading it slowly make sure that you check that there are no lumps there now, after about couple of minutes of kneading you will have very nice, soft and stretchy dough this entire kneading process actually makes it easier for you to roll this flatbread into a perfect circle and before you start making flatbread out of it you need to cut this dough into equal portions you don't want the people you feed complaining that somebody has got a bigger portion than them that would be a terrible fight! usually, how do you measure it? you don't need a scale for it or something, just a piece as big as your fingers are you just need to pull it out of the main roll now take the portion of this dough, and do exactly what you'd do with any other flatbread this is the same process, that's universal you take some dry flour, and your dab this dough into it, and make a nice ball out of it and this will make sure that you will get a nice round flatbread now take a rolling pin and get creative with the shapes you will never get it right the first time, trust me or even the second or the third but with practice, and patience, and never-to-give-up attitude you will finally end up with the perfect circle you need to look at the flatbread and it should tell you "Eat Me!" So, now you need to cook it Now, on a pan which is hot, but not too hot, you need to place this dough and cook on one side for about 30 seconds now, the first bread will always take longer than the second one why? because the pan is not hot enough then turn it around, and then dub it on the sides with a spatula, so that the sides and the edges are nicely cooked now, when you see this rice flatbread start to balloon that's the indication that it's coked nicely now, if you want to show your newly acquired skills and you want to take your flatbread to your office or to your friends the next day make sure that you dab it with very slight amount of olive oil or ghee on the surface this will ensure that the bread remains soft and edible I hope you enjoyed this video!
