I am not perfectly sure about quantity of water. I make roti everyday
but I don't measure quantity of water.
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1/2 cup Water
- sault a pinch
- 2 tp. canola oil
- All purpose flour
Add all ingredients except all purpose flour & start adding water.
Mix well with hands to make the dough like pastry dough.The consistency
should not be too loose. Let it rest for 1/2 hour
Make 6/8 balls from the dough. First roll the ball in the flour
so that it won't stick to the board & start making a round shape
using rolling pin. The width may vary from 4 to 6 inches. It should
thinner than the pie crust.
You can use griddle or pan to roast the roti. Put the made roti
on the hot griddle for 35 to 40 sec. Turn it on the other side again
for 25 sec.
It comes out very delicious & really healthy. If it is not too
difficult, remove the roti from the griddle (after roasting) & put
it directly on the stove for 10 sec.
I think what you tasted that day is called 'Paratha' & not Roti
. Because Roti is without stuffing & Paratha is with stuffing.
