Serves: 4 people

Prep : 15 mins

Cooking : 20 mins

Health Hack: Rotis are made from whole wheat flour and therefore naturally high in fiber and iron. They are full of nutrients, packed with energy and promotes healthy digestion.

Fresh Ingredients

  • Whole Wheat or Chapatti Flour – 280gms
  • Salt (optional) – ½ tsp
  • Water – 200mls approx.
  • Oil – 2 tbsp
  • Ghee or melted butter – 3 tbsp

Cooking Instructions

  • To make the dough first mix the flour, salt and oil together in a large bowl.
  • Add water gradually, kneading all the time with your hand (for 8-10 mins) to make the dough firm and smooth. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for at 10-15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into small to medium balls. Roll the balls in the palms of your hands. Dust the balls lightly with flour and roll into a flat round circle using a roti board and rolling pin.
  • Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat until it is quite hot. Place the rolled roti onto the pan and turn up the heat slightly.
  • Cook until small bubbles appear on the underside for 20-30 seconds and then turn. Cook this side until the base now has small dark beige spots.
  • Turn the bread over, continue cooking until the roti turns golden and fluffs up. Apply ghee and serve hot.
