Borotho, the traditional bread of Lesotho, is easy to make and very tasty too!
Bread flour (whole meal & white)
Pinch of salt,
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl, add water gradually as you knead. Knead until the dough is well mixed and springing back. Cover and keep warm, leave untill the dough is well risen.
Cook as desired: in the oven, or on the hob in a heavy pan at low heat, or steam. If steamed, it will be cooked if the table knife comes clean when testing. If cooked in the oven or on the hob, cook until nicely browned.
Serve with stew and barbecued meat or eat with jam. Enjoy!
