Tawa Roti

Tawa Roti

Makes 6 rotis

You will need

1 cup whole wheat flour ( gehun ka atta )
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oil
Ghee for topping ( optional )


Combine the flour and salt and knead into soft and pliable dough with sufficient water ( 150 ml warm water required for 350 g atta to make soft dough and you can make 7 rotis ).

Add the oil and knead again till the dough is smooth and elastic.

Cover and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into 6 equal parts.

Use a little flour to roll each portion into circles of approximately 150 mm ( 6 - inch ) diameter.

Dust off any excess dry flour and place the roti on a hot Non Stick Tawa ( griddle ).

Turn over in a few seconds and cook this side till the edges begin to curl slightly and small blisters appear on the surface.

Cook the other side for a few more seconds.


Lift the roti with a pair of flat tong and roast on both sides over an open flame till it puffs up.

Flatten the roti and apply some ghee ( optional ) on top.

Repeat to make 5 more rotis.

Serve hot with any gravy dishes or dal or kebabs of your choice.
