Basic Roti

Submitted by: Karan Johar


4 cups of whole wheat flour
1 and 1/4 cups of water


1. In a large mixing bowl, gradually add water to the flour and mix well until you get stiff dough
2. Knead the dough until it yields a smooth texture and consistency.
3. Cover with a slightly damp cloth and let the dough rest for about 20 minutes.
4. Knead the dough again and divide it into 8 equal portions. Roll the individual portions into round balls (golf ball size).
5. Take 1 round ball at a time and flatten it into a round disk. Dust your work area and rolling pin with a little bit of flour to prevent sticking. Gently roll the flattened ball into a circle, making sure the roti is even in thickness. Keep rolling until you have created a thin round roti approximately 8 inches in diameter.
6. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat, add Ghee and place the roti in the pan. After a minute or so, turn the roti to the other side. Both sides should be golden brown. Brush with Ghee and serve.
