Serves: 2


Wheat Flour – 1 Cup (100ml Cup)

Water – 1 Cup (50ml Cup)

Take a flat plate and add 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Then add water and make the dough. Generally for 1 cup of flour it takes ½ cup of water to form the dough. But do not add all the water at once. Add water slowly and make the dough. Knead the dough with the knuckles of your hand till soft. One can prepare this dough in a food processor also. The dough should be soft to touch. When there is enough water in the dough the Rotis will puff perfectly. So prepare soft dough. Keep this dough in a covered box. Keep it aside for at least half an hour.

Take a bowl for which there is a firm lid. Take a muslin cloth and spread it in the bowl. Keep this near the Tawa.

Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and make balls. Heat a Tawa. Keep the Roti making frame near the Tawa. Now take a ball and coat it with dry flour and start rolling. When it is of Puri size, coat again with dry flour and roll it to a Roti. When the Tawa is hot put this rolled Roti on it. After few seconds you will see some bubbles on the Roti. Then you turn it to the other side and roast. When the other side is also done take this half cooked Roti on to the Roti making frame. Now hold the handle of the frame and put it directly on the flame. Then slowly the Roti puffs. Now flip the Roti to roast on the other side. Now the Roti is fully done so take it and drop it in the bowl in which we have spread a muslin cloth. Similarly make all the Rotis and put them in the bowl. When all Rotis are done bring the edges of the muslin cloth together and cover. Now close the lid. By doing this the Rotis will remain soft inside till consumed. They won’t become soggy because the muslin cloth will take all the moisture and keep them soft.

Points to Remember:

One 100ml Cup gives 60gms of wheat flour. With this 60gms flour we get 4 Rotis. These 4 Rotis are sufficient for 2 people for one meal. Eat lot of vegetables with these 2 Rotis.

Make Rotis just before you serve food. Hot Rotis are softer and also taste good.

Do not remove the bran from the wheat flour. Many people have wrong notion that Rotis will not puff if there is bran in the flour used. But here you can see in this Video how they puff. You can also give a try for yourself to come out of the wrong notion.
