SWEET POTATO INDIAN FLATBREAD

SWEET POTATO INDIAN FLATBREAD

EDITED; This recipe was featured in Sweet Inspiration link party on 31at March 2017. Check here.




In 1903, when two American Wright brothers invented the world's first successful airplane, they might have never thought that after 100 years or so that flying by air would become a major mode of transport. These days modern aeroplanes can carry hundreds of passengers and can travel thousands of kilometers in a few hours, and people who are traveling can have breakfast in Africa and lunch in Europe!




I remember my first aeroplane journey in Jan 1980, when I was traveling from India to Kenya. Those days aeroplanes were very different, they were smaller, noisier, with fewer facilities (like television) inside the aircraft. At the time of landing, sometimes passengers were screaming, because our hearts were sinking. Compared to that time, modern aeroplanes are very convenient with luxury seats and lots of entertainment facilities. Despite the improvements today, long journeys are still tiring.





These journeys or modern transportation and communication have made the world very small and now people are settling and working in different countries and touring the world. People are not restricted to their local community, locality or even their own country to live or to work.



People who travel and settle in new places, also take with them, their culture, tradition and their food. This is the reason, if you go to any part of the world, you will find Italian pizza, American coffee, Indian Naan, Chinese spring rolls, British pound cake etc. in any part of the world. People are interacting with each other’s cultures and enjoying food of different cuisines in different parts of the world. This is also resulting in fusion food mushrooming in every part of the world; even in restaurants, you can find fusion food like Indo-Chinese, Indo-Canadian, Indo-British.




Coming to the recipe, this is my daughter's fusion recipe, in which she is feeding the family, a healthy version of Indian flat bread. Though there are many types of Indian flat breads, but new ones are also coming up like this one.

  1. These rotisserie look so colourful and healthy. I remember when flying years ago, the economy class was not so congested. Seats back then were what business class seats are today, wide and lots of leg room. It's so true that wherever Indians go we tend to adapt the local food culture and make a fusion.

    1. Yes, they can puff easily depending on the dough you make. This type of rolling pin we use to make Indian flat bread- roti, naan etc. Thanks for your visit and the comment.

  6. Good to be here after long, Sadhna. Your recipes are like a new experience every time I land-up here. If I had been around you, I am sure I would have tried a few at your place.

    I remember my first plane journey in 2005 when I first came to US...the experience is not much different though now. From 1980s, I am sure it's a sea change!
