I found a recipe for it. I must try making it, though it is quite easy to buy in English stores! I don't understand how it rises if there is no yeast, though! This is a very basic recipe for the famous Indian bread, 'ROTI'. You can mix flavourings (savoury) in the flour and suit your taste. Notice there is no sugar, yeast or butter. It is very healthy and can be used for a roll-up meal. * All purpose or wholemeal flour - 500 gm * salt - a pinch * Water - 2 cups or so 1. Mix flour and salt nicely. 2. Add water, little by little and form in to a semi soft dough. 3. Keep aside for 15 minutes for leavening, cover the dough with a moist cloth. 4. Knead a little more(2 minutes) 5. Make egg-sized balls. 6. Flatten and roll on dry flour with a rolling pin; it should be 4-5 mm thick and round in shape. 7. Cook in a pan or griddle until a little brown on both sides.(Keep turning) Enjoy hot with curries or gravies, make roll-ups with meat, cheese and other sandwich fillings.

I don't actually think there is a traditional bread, oh actually Hovis is isn't it? My favoUrite bread is the freshly baked Hovis type loaf (unsliced). I usually just use Tescos own bread though, it tastes lovely toasted with some Stork margarine and some strawberry jam on it. Hmmm, I'm hungry now. :)

milk loaf. My other half keeps telling me I have to try Blackpool milk loaf! I'd never heard of it before. I don't really know about others. I guess there are loads that I could say were traditional because they've been available for so long but I don't know if they originated here or elsewhere. And I don't really have a favourite bread. I like medium sliced brown bread with no bits, covered with Dairylea spread!
