Roomali Roti

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour
  • 50 gms. plain flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. melted ghee or butter
  • Sift flours, salt together. Rub in ghee till flour is crumbly. Add water, knead into soft, liable dough.
  • Cover and keep aside for 45 minutes. Knead again till smooth, divide into six parts. Shape into rounds.
  • Roll as thin as possible using dry flour for dusting. Place one on back of palm. With circular movement in one direction, flip and rotate roti.
  • This procedure will make the roti very thin. Invert deep tawa or heavy cast iron pan, and heat over gas.
  • When hot, spread roti over inverted griddle and allow to cook. Tiny black spots will appear on it when done.
  • This roti cooks very fast. Approx. 45- 50 seconds each. Fold like a handkerchief (roomal) before serving.
