Qatlama (Flat bread)

"Qatlama" is one variety of Uzbek bread. It is flat and it has many slices in it. Good with soups. I love this crunchy bread when it is just ready and hot:)
400 ml of water
2 tsp of salt
Plain flour as needed
300 ml of butter for greasing
Make not very firm dough from water, salt and flour. Cover it and let it stand for 20 min. Roll up in thin flat round. Grease with melted butter, and roll it up around rolling stick. (I use long wooden stick). Cut the dough along the stick lengthwise, put the stick to the side and again cut in 3 inch strips. Roll each piece around itself (or if you want to make more slices, then put 2,3 stripes together and then roll up around itself) and put on their flat side. Roll up them in round flat shapes to a thickness of 1 cm. Heat up frying pan with thick bottom. Coat with some oil or butter and fry each "Qatlama" on both sides until golden. Serve as hot and enjoy it!
Yoqimli ishtaha!!!
