Satpadi – Spiced Griddle Bread


  • 2 cup Aata Stone ground (fine whole wheat flour)
  • 2 tsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 Tbs Coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 2 Tbs Sambhaar
  • 2 Tbs Jiralu
  • 3 Tbs Chopped Cilantro
  • 2- 3 Tbs Spice and oil from a mango pickle jar.
  • Ghee to brush on the baked bread.


Make the dough

  1. Mix the oil and salt into the aata.
  2. Add the water gradually and mix to make a soft pliable dough. You may need 3/4 C to 1 1/8th C water depending on the age of the flour and humidity. So add water gradually.
  3. Let the dough rest for a few minutes

Make the Satpadi Masala

  1. While the dough is resting, make the spice mix
  2. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, Sambhaar, cilantro and jiralu to the mango spice and oil mix.
  3. Stir to combine well.

Make the Satpadi

  1. Heat a non stick griddle / cast iron griddle and keep it on medium heat.
  2. Divide the dough into 7- 8 equal parts and roll each one into a ball.
  3. Working with one dough ball at a time, dip the dough ball in some flour and roll out into a thin circle with a rolling pin.
  4. Brush on about 2 tsp of Satpadi Masala mix on the rolled out circle.
  5. Starting from one end of the circle, start rolling in towards the other - like a swiss roll.
  6. Take one end of the roll and place back it on the counter. Now wrap the rest of the dough rope around this end to form a coil. Once you reach the end of the dough rope, place the end under the coil and press down with your palm.
  7. Roll this coil out into a 6 in circle .
  8. Bake on the griddle for about 1-2 minutes on each side and then brush with ghee - one side at a time and cook again for about 30 seconds on each side.
  9. Serve with chai and raita.
