How to make Soft rotis - Indian flat bread
Whole Wheat flour -1 cup
Salt – a pinch
Oil – 1 tsp
Little wheat flour or rice flour for dusting
Board and rolling pin
Ghee ( optional)
For 1 cup of flour you will get 6 rotis.
Take 1 cup of flour, add a pinch of salt and a tsp of oil. Then mix ½ cup of warm water gradually little by little and knead it into a dough. You may need a little more or less water depending on the flour you are using.
Knead it into a soft dough as shown in the picture.
The dough should not be sticky. Grease your hands with a little oil for kneading if required.
Make 6 equal sized balls. Have some wheat flour for dusting.
Roll out into round shapes using little wheat flour for dusting. With practice you can easily do this.
Heat the tawa and place the rolled out dough on it. Let it cook for a few minutes. You will see small bubbles forming.
Flip it over to the other side and cook, turning and pressing it with a small towel/napkin.It will puff.
Remove from the tawa , apply a little ghee (optional) and serve with any side dish of your choice.
