A classic Bengali flatbread made with rice flour instead of wheat flour-great if you want to avoid gluten, and delicious enjoyed warm with a light meat curry or your favourite vegetable dish. The recipe calls for equal volumes of water and rice flour so use either a mug or a standard cup to measure them out.


  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rice flour, plus more for rolling


In a pan bring a cup of water to the boil with the salt. Reduce the heat to low, then carefully pour in the flour. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon so that everything is well combined and turn the heat to very low. Cover with a lid and let the dough steam for five minutes. Take off the heat and cool
