I just would like to share a scene you can’t see in Dubai if you’re visiting and only been around to what is called “New Dubai” – all those luxurious street, malls and tall buildings part of Dubai.
(We live in the old part of Dubai, away from the glitz and glamour.)
Here’s an Indian bread maker showing off his skills to us when we passed by a small local restaurant where he works. The kitchen is open and if you do see one, I encourage you to stop by and see.
It’s pretty amazing.
First, the bread maker chips off a dough from a huge block of dough made earlier then kneads it, slaps it back to back with his hands (that’s how I see it!), flattens it with a rolling pin then pastes it in a round thing covered in thick cloth. He then sticks the bread to the hot stone oven for cooking.
He uses long steel sticks to pick out the cooked breads and tosses them out to a nearby plastic container. He hasn’t missed a shot! All breads landed in the container, located a few meters away, safely!
Pristine loved the bread making show so much. Before we left, the bread maker gave us a hot stone-baked traditional Indian flat bread called “Naan”, for free. The smell was great and the taste? It was just as fabulous.
