Roti Bread

  • 500 gm all purpose or wholemeal flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups or so water
This is a very basic recipe for the famous Indian bread, 'ROTI'.

You can mix flavorings (savoury) in the flour and suit your personal taste. Notice there is no sugar, yeast or butter. It is quite healthy and can be used for a roll-up meal.

Mix flour and salt nicely.
Add water, little by little and form into a semi soft dough.
Keep aside for 15 minutes for leavening; cover the dough with a moist cloth.
Knead a little more (2 minutes).
Make egg-sized balls.
Flatten and roll, roll, roll on dry flour with a rolling pin; it should be 4-5 mm thick and circular in shape.
Cook in a griddle or pan until a little brown on both sides. Keep turning.
Enjoy hot with curries or gravies, make roll-ups with meat, cheese and other sandwich fillings.
