How to make Soft Roti

  • Take atta in a bowl,
  • add a pinch of salt and
  • add water little by little.
  • As you add water, mix with your hands and bring the dough together.
  • When dough comes together, start kneading the dough with the knuckles of fingers, applying pressure.
  • Divide the dough into equal parts, each weighing around 35 to 37 grams.
  • Then roll it between your palms to make it round and smooth.
  • Press the round dough ball and flatten it slightly.
  • Dip the prepared dough ball into the dry flour and dust it from all sides.
  • Start rolling the roti, using a rolling board and rolling pin and make it round.
  • Now on a heated tawa put the round roti and wait for sometime until bubbles come. Then cook the other side.
  • Now, remove the roti from the tawa using a tong and place it directly on flame with the first side (which was little less cooked) directly on the flame.
  • The roti if rolled evenly will puff up, flip with a tong to cook the other side as well. The roti is done when it has brown spots, don’t burn it…….Roti is ready.
