Indian Flat Bread - Roti

Today I show you another Indian recipe that I am very excited about and I have already repeated it about 4 times in the last 2 weeks. It is from the same friend from India, so a household recipe, tested, without many complications but with a more than excellent result.

A good solution if you don't feel like making homemade bread, but you want something good, healthy and fast for family meals. Sofia eats them without anything, they are also good for making some more interesting sandwiches, homemade shaorma or simply for eating them with some delicious sauce.


Whole wheat flour
280 g
White flour
80 g
170 g
130 g
Baking powder
0.5 tsp
or baking soda

Step by step

Step 1

In a deeper bowl, mix the flour and baking powder.

With baking soda it comes out a little softer, but it doesn't swell so well - so experiment and choose the option you like.

Step 2

Step 3

Add another 100 ml of water if you notice that the dough is more floury.

It is very important to make the dough soft.

Step 4

Continue to knead the dough in the bowl with your hands.

Or take it out on the table sprinkled with flour and knead well to make a uniform and soft dough - along the way add more flour so that it does not stick to your hands and table.

Let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes - cover with a towel or plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out.

At the same time, heat an older pan well, without oil!

And put the glues one by one to bake, over medium heat.

Step 11

And more and more.

I admit that at the first 2 series of glues they didn't swell so nicely - but it didn't influence the taste and texture much.

These puffs show that the dough is well made.

Step 12

They turn on the other side when they turn brown (some slightly brown spots appear).

And notice that it swells even more, they are made like pillows :)

For those who do not have problems with cholesterol, they can be greased hot with a little butter, they will be even more delicious.
