This Omani flatbread is a deep flavourful, flaky bread with a mild sweetness that compliments spicier dishes/curries or can be eaten as is.
Soak the pitted Dates in 1 cup of boiling water for 2-3 hours or until softened.
Puree the softened dates using a strainer or a fine mesh. You may require a blender to blend, if it is not very soft for you.
Mix the pureed dough along with salt, 1 tbsp ghee, and flour and make a soft dough.
Let the dough rest for minimum 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal or lemon size balls.
Roll each to form a flatbread/paratha/circular disc/or shape you like to 5-6 inches long. I was trying to make a triangular shape, but as usual my paratha or rotis go round :-), so please ignore the shapes :D :D
Shallow fry each using ghee until cooked from both the sides. Since the dough have dates in them, it will be cooked very fast.
