Instructions

1.Add 2 cups of flour to a large spacious bowl. Save 2 tablespoons of flour for dusting later.
2.Slowly, add water and knead thoroughly with your knuckles for at least 10 minutes. Then cover the bowl with a plate or wet cloth for 5 -10 minutes.
3.Take a small ball of dough and flatten with the palm of your hands. Use a rolling pin to flatten about 6-8 diameter round.
4.Dust the dough as you roll to keep it from sticking on the rolling pin.
5.Heat a pan on medium. Add roti once the pan is hot. It will slowly turn brown, then flip to brown the other side.
6.Slowly tap the edges of the roti with a cotton cloth until it puffs. If this is your first time, it might not puff. Keep trying!
7.Fluffy and soft roti is ready. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.

Let’s learn how to make soft homemade roti at home. Roti is a flatbread made out of wholewheat flour which is called atta. The difference between wholewheat and all-purpose roti is that roti made with whole wheat is soft and roti made with all-purpose flour is rubbery and chewy.

I like to eat roti with curries and make tacos. I can eat them every day. A lot of people struggle to make roti soft. Today, I will teach you how to make soft roti. For people who have been buying store-bought roti/tortilla really don’t know what you have been missing out on. Growing up in Nepal, I used to make roti for dinner every night. When I have enough time to make roti I blend greens like spinach, and sometimes add vegetables while kneading roti. It adds flavor and fiber. They are absolutely delicious and healthy.


tips

  1. Roti is amazing when paired with any curry. I also enjoy making wraps.
  2. Knead your flour adequately for best results. I usually knead at least 10 minutes for best results. 
  3. When making the dough, do not pour all the water at once, instead add slowly in increments. It might take few try to make fluffy roti, but don’t get discouraged, practice will make your roti better.
