Yesterday, I tried my hand at kneading dough for phulkas. Used the divide and conquer algorithm for the task.
The trick was to add just enough water so that the resulting dough reaches a manageable size and separate it. Proceed with the same step until no more loose flour is left. Then bring back all the chunks together and add water as necessary.
Ofcourse, the resulting phulkas were more like veratti(dried dung), but hey, its a start.
