Oh, I love these soft and thick Kokis. My sindhi neighbor used to prepare these delicious Chapathis called Kokis. She will send a dozen Kokis to my house whenever I am visiting my Parents. Thanks to my Neighbor for sharing the recipe. Since I am diet conscious, I have slightly modified the recipe.


Chapathi Flour (Preferably Whole Wheat Flour) - 2 Cups
Oil - 1 tablespoon

Sonf - 1 tablespoon
Coriander Leaves – a bunch
Cumin Seeds – 1 tablespoon
Onion – 1 Large
Green Chillis - 3

Oil to Shallow-fry the Chapathis.


Using a Chopper, Chop finely Onions, Coriander Leaves, Green Chillis, Sonf, and Cumin Seeds together.

Add the Above Chopped Mixture to the Flour. Add Oil and Salt and Mix the flour. Knead very well using very little water. Adding Malai / Cream will enhance the taste. The Dough should be stiff.

Make equal size balls and Roll like the usual Chapathis. The Rolled Chapathis should be thicker than Usual. Shallow-fry each Koki both the sides using little oil. For Authentic Kokis use Mixture of Oil and Ghee generously. Serve Warm immediately with a Dollop of Yogurt or Thick Curd.

hi mythreyee..

Thanks for the recipe
Al are so simple ans easy to prepare..
And i have a doubt in this recipe?
Wat is sonf?
I'm from south India. I can't understand this term. Is it 'saunf' - Aniseed/Fennel seeds ?
Can u pls suggest some other names of it.
Thanx in advance.

Mythreyee said...

Divya, first of all, Iam very sorry for not responding to your query for a long time. I was in India and hence the delay. Sonf is Fennel Seeds. I am sure you will love this recipe. thanks and bye.

Hi there,
Just had a question. Do the koki's turn out soft or are they kinda hard?


Mythreyee said...

They are like parathas. Soft but heavy.
