Gurasa - Sudanese Flatbread#Eattheworld

Sudanese cuisine is a multicultural one. Their cuisine is a mix of Arabs, Africans, Indians, Greek and Turks who settled in Sudan. Gurasa is a flatbread of Sudan which is a yeasted one. This is so soft and fluffy, perfect to go with the Peas And Potatoes Stew. We had the remaining for our dinner and they were soft as ever, no need to reheat them.
1 Cup = 250 ML 
Makes around 8 - 9 
1 Cup Whole wheat flour
1 Cup All purpose flour
¼ Teaspoon Baking powder
½ Teaspoon Instant Yeast
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
2 Cups Water

Take both the flours, baking powder, yeast, sugar and salt together into a large bowl and whisk well so that they are mixed.
Add the water gradually and mix well till it is as  thick as a dosa batter. 
Cling wrap it and keep it aside till it doubles in volume.
Once it doubles in volume, give it a good stir and let it again rest for 15 minutes.
In the meantime heat a nonstick pan till just hot and brush with oil, sprinkle a little water and wipe it clean with a kitchen towel. 
The pan should be warm, now pour a ladle or two of this batter, and spread as much as like a dosa, in a circular motion with the ladle.
Keep the flame in medium low and cook till the bottom side is golden brown and the top is dry.
Flip it and cook this side for just a minute. 
Remove on to cooling rack lined with paper towel. 
Like wise make the rest, but do not grease the pan with oil, just wipe it with a wet cloth, then pour the batter and spread it in a circular motion with the ladle. If the pan is too hot then, switch off the flame and wipe the pan with a wet cloth, or else the batter with clump and you will not be able to spread it with a spoon. 
These are so soft and fluffy.
Serve with your favorite stew, we enjoyed this with Peas And Potatoes Stew ( this recipe will be posted on 20th Feb).

Happy Home-maker and culinary enthusiast.


  1. These look SO incredibly light and lacey!

  2. They are like crepes....anxious to give them a try.

  3. They look amazing! We loved it too! They are soft and they go great with any stew. Your Gurasa looks soft, tender, and delicious!

  4. I will have to try this soon! They look so pretty and light.

  5. These look lovely! I almost made these - now I think I need to!

  6. Wow. Those look lovely and soft. I can see how the combination of yeast and baking powder help them rise and extra well, yet have that great yeasty flavour.

  7. The little holes in it remind me of Ethiopian bread. Definitely something I want to try.
