Ingredients

  • cups plain white flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 500 g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup sliced spring onions
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • extra olive oil, for frying

Instructions

  • Combine the flour, salt and cardamom in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and gradually add the water and the teaspoon of oil and mix to form a dough. Knead into a ball. If the dough is too dry to form a smooth ball add a little more water.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured bench space and knead for 10 minutes.
  • Put the ball of dough back in the bowl and cover with a cloth. Let it rest for about an hour.
  • Put the sweet potato in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer until the sweet potato is cooked, about 15 minutes (will vary depending on how big you chopped it). Drain.
  • Put the cooked sweet potato in a bowl and mash it up a bit, it doesn't have to be smooth. Add the spring onions, coriander, lemon juice and soy sauce. Mix well.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal balls . Take one and roll it out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured bench (don't make it too floury, otherwise the edges of your bolani won't press back together). Roll it out into a thin tortilla, about 25 - 30 cm diameter. The thinner your roll it out the better.
  • Spread about an eighth of the sweet potato filling over half of the circle, leaving about 2 cm around the edge.
  • Fold the other half over and press the edges down together. If you have put a bit too much flour on it then it won't stick properly, if this is the case you can brush it with a bit of water to help it stick, but it shouldn't need this.
  • Repeat with the remaining ingredients until you have 8 bolani ready to go.
  • Heat a non stick frypan over a medium heat with a small amount of olive oil. Add two bolani to the pan and fry until browned slightly on both sides, about 5 minutes on each side. Keep your eyes on them so that they don't char. Drain on a paper towel as you remove them. Cook the rest in batches.
