RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

» How to make Roti Dough:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour and salt and mix it thoroughly.
  2. Add enough warm water and start mixing and knead to make a smooth dough.
  3. Knead the dough with your fist and knuckles till it is soft. Roti dough should be really smooth and elastic. Kneading would take about 10 minutes. (You can also knead the dough in a food processor).
  4. Smear a little oil over the dough.
  5. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and set aside for 30 minutes.
  6. Once the dough has rested for 30 minutes, knead it again for a few seconds.
  7. Divide the dough into 11-12 pieces and roll them between the palms to make lemon sized balls.

» How to Roll Roti:

  1. Dip one dough ball into some dry flour and flatten it.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll it with light hands into a thin flat circle of about 6-7? diameter.
  3. Roll all the rotis the same way. Keep them covered.

» How to Cook Roti on the Flame:

  1. Heat a tawa/pan.
  2. Once the pan is hot, then put the rolled roti (dough circle) on it.
  3. When you see bubbles forming up, flip it, and cook on the other side for a few seconds or until you see brown spots.
  4. Hold roti with a tong and place it directly on the flame.
  5. At this point, your roti would start to puff. Flip it and cook on the other side too.
  6. Brush cooked roti with ghee and serve hot with curry, or dal. If using later, then keep it aside covered with a muslin cloth.

» How to cook Roti on a pan:
