“Loli” orginates from my land of “Sindh”. It is a spiced roti/paratha which is served with yogurt, pickles and papadums as breakfast. If you ever visit a sindhi home for breakfast chances are high you might be served this! I haven´t met anyone who doesnt love lolis! Basically its a dough with onions, coriander leaves, green chillies and spices. It makes good tupperware food as it has a long shelf life.
I have recorded a video to show you exactly how it is done.
INGREDIENTS FOR ABOUT 10 LOLIS
4 small bowls of whole wheat flour (available from all desi stores)
1 bowl of cooking or extra virgen olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of chopped coriander leaves
1 teaspoon each of cumin seeds, coarsley crushed whole coriander seeds, and lemon pepper (OR black pepper and dry pomogranet powder -anardhana /daarukhata)
About 250 ml of water or as needed
Green chillies chopped as you wish- i did not add
Put the flour in a bowl and add the oil , salt and all the ingredients and mix well. Add the water slowly and make a dough which is not too soft. Knead for five minutes.
Make small balls and then roll out and bake on a iron gridle (tawa) and then brush with a little butter.
Serve with papadums and yogurt
For Jain recipe : please omit the onion
