How to make Roti

  • Out of 450 grams of flour, set aside 200 grams to use for dusting and shaping of rotis.
  • Use a deep bowl to place the rest of the flour and add salt into it.
  • Add water into the flour containing bowl gradually and start to mix. Remember to add water little at a time. Over addition will result in a tacky dough.
  • Start kneading as you keep on adding water. Continue until you have achieved dough that is soft and smooth.
  • To make softer chapattis or rotis you can knead longer.
  • Take a small portion of dough and make a ball.
  • Sprinkle some of the dry flour on the rolling board and flatten the ball into thin discs with the help of a rolling pin. You can dust flour to make rolling smoother.
  • Heat a griddle and place the rolled dough on the surface.
  • Let it cook for about 15 seconds before you turn it over with a pair of tongs.
  • Cook the other side in a similar manner. As soon as you see brown spots on the underside, your roti is cooked.
  • Take it off of the griddle and brush with butter if you wish.
