Sourdough Flatbread#BreadBakers

This sourdough bread has a great taste and flavor, but does not rise like a yeast dough. I do not know why my bread does not rise like other's, since seen many breads with sourdough that look so beautiful risen. Am very soon going to attend a class on sourdough baking.

1 Cup Well Fed Starter
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 To 3/4 Cup Warm Water


Knead the above to soft dough. The dough will be sticky but do not add more flour. Oil your hands and fold for a 15 to 20 turns or till it is not very sticky but form a soft round ball. Keep it in an oiled bowl. Cover it loose with a plastic or towel and keep it to rise. Kneaded it at 2 pm at 5 pm kept it in the refrigerator.  

Next day morning took the dough out and kept it on the counter for 1.1/2 hours to come to room temperature. Lined a baking tray with aluminum foil and oil it well, patted it into an oval shape.Brushed it with warm water. Baked it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for exactly 35 minutes.
When done take it out and spray it with little water, cover it with a towel and keep it aside. 
 Slice it and enjoy. 
This  bread paired perfectly with Smoked Saucy Paneer Gravy ( recipe follows)

My Notes
Water will depend on the hydration of the starter. I, used 1/2 cup only.

This dough does not rise like the yeast dough, double it's volume. It rises a little. But do no fret, the taste and aroma of this sourdough bread is awesome.
