Rumali/Roomali Roti Recipe

This is a three ingredient recipe very simple to prepare. Down side to this recipe is we cannot use wheat flour. The dough cannot be stored in fridge. The roti cannot be prepared ahead of time stored or reheated. You may ask why? The texture of this roti will not be the same if pre prepared and stored the roti will not be edible since this is a thin roti it will get chewy.

  • After 1/2 hour take a golf size dough ball dust in extra flour and roll it out into thin roti.
  • Make sure to roll the roti as thin as possible.
  • Heat a skillet/tawa on medium flame transfer the rolled roti and fry on both sides for just under a minute since the roti is thin it will cook fast.
  • Once tiny bubbles and brown spots appear the roti is done remove from flame and serve hot...Enjoy with korma or seekhs...:)
