  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt and garam masala in large bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons oil and enough water until dough is soft but not sticky

  • Divide dough into 10 balls. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Roll dough into very thin circles. Brush both sides with oil

  • For each roti, heat 1 teaspoon oil in large skillet on medium heat. Cook roti 1 minute per side or until top starts to bubble

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tip: Stack rotis in resealable plastic bags while still warm. The steam will help keep the rotis soft and pliable. Rotis can also be cooled and used as a wrap for your favorite sandwich filling.

Serving Suggestion: Serve roti as an appetizer with Roasted Indian Curry Cream.

    Very good. I have made it a few times. I left out the garam masala this time around because I served it with the Spiced Couscous with Shrimp recipe from this site. This recipe is easy to make and it doesn't take long to make the roti. I use my cast iron griddle, which fits over two burners, to cook three or four at a time.
