Fool proof roti

I’ve tried making rotis for years, sometimes they came out perfect and other times they were as stiff as a pizza base. But did you know adding baking powder to your regular mixture would ensure you get perfectly soft, delcious rotis everytime? You didn’t? well neither did I.

Here’s a cool recipe which has never failed me.

4 cups all purpose flour (I’ve used cake flour and it worked just as well)

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons butter or ghee (melted)

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

Mix together all your Ingredients until it resembles bread crumbs. Then add in enough freshly boiled water to the mixture to make a soft dough. Knead and wrap dough in a damp tea towel for 20 minutes. Roll out into circles and toast on a non stick pan. Add a bit of butter or ghee to the pan before toasting.
