I made another batch of this over the weekend. Roti is a traditional bread originating in India or Pakistan normally eaten with curries or cooked vegetables. How to make homemade roti:
You will need:
250 grams of whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour works too)
1TB. oil or ghee (ghee is a clarified butter used in Indian cooking)
1 tsp. salt (optional)
water to knead the dough
More flour for rolling out the dough so it doesn’t stick
In my kitchen aid mixer, I added the flour (I actually used all purpose flour because I didn’t have any whole wheat flour). 250 grams is about 2 1/4 cups of flour.
Add the salt and oil to the flour. I used the dough hook on my mixer and just started adding water until all the flour was absorbed and it looked like pizza dough.Let it rest in a covered bowl about 30 minutes.
Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a smooth ball between your palms. Place the dough on a flat surface dusted with flour and roll out into a thin circle. I used a griddle lightly coated with Pam cooking spray. I did brush some olive oil on either side of the bread.
It only takes a few minutes to cook. Cook for about 30 seconds on each side, flipping so it doesn’t get overcooked. As in the picture, once the bread gets browned a little on each side its done.
You can eat these plain, add cheese, use it as bread for a sandwich, serve it with stir fry, or with taco meat, or whatever you want!
If you make 10 roti bread out of this dough, each one would be 115 calories, 1.7 fat, .8 fiber and 21 grams of carbs.
