Step 1

Mix all the ingridients except the flour together. Then add the flour (will need almost a full packet) to form a soft dough. Knead and cover, allowing to rise for 2-3 hours.

Step 2

Knead smooth again. Roll out roties/chappatis (a bit thicker than standard chappatis) using plenty of flour. Be careful not to leave the edges thick.

Step 3

Cook over medium heat on a griddle/tava. Keep the rotis covered and serve fresh, whilst they hot.


Leftover dough will keep in the fridge overnight (put it in a bowl and cover with clingfilm), to be cooked fresh the next day. The cooked rotis can also be frozen.
