What actually is Roti?
Roti, Chapati, Fulka, Flatbread, all these are the names of this super simple bread. Originally from India and it’s staple food, it is similar to Pita bread and is made very simply from whole wheat flour and water. As per my knowledge, it is also a popular cuisine of Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Suriname, Jamaica, Grenada.
Roti is rich in Proteins and many other nutrients according to what new and extra item has been mixed in the dough.
- Whole wheat Flour
Take one cup whole wheat flour.
Slowly slowly, pour water in it and knead to make a soft dough.
Cover this dough with a soft wet cloth and keep it aside for 30-40 minutes.
After 30-40 minutes, uncover it and make 8 small balls of that dough of nearly equal size (Well, that’s not so necessary, but doing so can get you equal and beautiful Rotis).
Now, Sprinkle some dry flour on a smooth board.
Putting a light pressure on the balls one by one, make it circular and now with the help of a rolling pin, roll these and prepare a thin flat circle.
Up til now the Flat pan(Tawa) is hot enough.
Stew this flat raw bread on the Tawa and bake both the sides one by one.
Your Roti is ready to be served.
