Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Add the first four ingredients to a large bowl and mix thoroughly.

  2. Add the oil or ghee and rub it into the flour.

  3. Add enough water to knead to make a dough. Once the dough comes together, knead it for 2 - 3 minutes to a soft pliable dough.

  4. Rub the dough with a little oil so as not to form a skin. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

  5. Heat a cast iron griddle or pan on medium heat.

  6. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Cover the rest of the dough as you work with one piece at a time.

  7. Lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin.

  8. Form one piece of the dough into a ball, then flatten to a disk and roll into a 5 inch circle of about 1/4 inch thickness.

  9. Transfer rolled dough to tawah or pan, lower heat to medium-low. Let cook on one side until the roti puffs up. Flip the roti and cook the other side for a minute or two. Remove roti from tawah and wrap loosely in kitchen towel (flour-bag type of fabric)

  10. Repeat from step 8 until all the roti is made.

  11. Serve as is with butter, jam, a spread of your choice or sauteed vegetables or a curry.
