"This recipe is very easy. Despite not containing gluten, these are quite soft and have a somewhat nutty flavor. Traditionally, eaten for lunch or dinner with a dollop of unsalted home-made butter and garlic chutney, these rotis can be served with any vegetable curry. Recipe originally from http://www.aayisrecipes.com. "

Step 1

Heat water and add salt. When it starts boiling, add the flour and mix continuously till all the water is absorbed. Take off the heat.

Step 2

When it is still hot, knead the dough on a flat board. Spread using the rolling pin (For rolling, apply dry flour as much as needed. If the roti breaks, make it into a ball again, apply some more flour and roll).

Step 3

Fry on the heated dry tava (griddle made from cast iron, I use a cast iron frying pan). Serve hot.
