How to make it

  • Add enough water to the flour to make a soft dough.
  • Knead the dough for about 5 minutes
  • Cover with damp cloth and leave at room temperature for at least half an hour
  • Break dough into 4 pieces.
  • With the hands, stretch the dough out, fold in half, and repeat this 4 or 5 times. Roll out to approx 2mm thick, shake off excess flour
  • Preheat hot plate or griddle (preferably non stick so you don't need oil).
  • Place roti's onto hot griddle one at a time, and cook for a minute or so, until it starts to go crispy. Turn, cook another minute, then turn again. It should puff up. If your rotis don't puff up a lot, it doesn't really matter, but don't tell any Indian friends or they will gloat.
  • Keep warm. If they do get cold they may go a bit hard, but sprinkle with water, cover, and microwave for a few seconds and they will go soft again.
