The Dabla are two long wooden spatulas used when making buss-up-shut (paratha roti). The dabla is used to turn the roti. When it is cooked, the roti is slapped together with the dabla to create the ripped up effect. Of course there are also different sizes and styles of dabla, ranging from about four feet to about one foot (like the one shown in the picture).
