Roti (Chappathi) recipe

Let us discuss today about making some soft and delicious roti or chappathis.

Roti (Chappathi) recipe - plain and simple.

Wheat flour - 3 cups, plain
Oil - 1/4 cup; substitutes - ghee or butter.
Butter - 2 teaspoons
Hotwater - as required for the dough

Method #1: Mix the wheat flour and oil. Add water. Knead the dough with hands gently and evenly until it becomes supple, soft, and elastic. Make the dough into even-sized balls about 1-1/2 inch thick. Flatten the balls in a flat surface. Sprinkle some flour. Roll to make a circular roti. You can also roll it out with a roti roller. Heat a heavy saucepan, griddle, or a dosa tawa. Place the roti on the griddle and cook one side until small bubbles appear. Sprinkle some oil along the edges (optional). The roti will pop up. It takes approximately 15-20 seconds. Turn the roti and cook similarly on the other side being careful not to burn it. Cook for approximately one minute. Stack the rotis on a plate and lightly butter on one side. Serve hot. Enjoy!
