Directions for Masala Roti Recipe | Soft and Spicy Indian Flat Bread
To begin making Soft and Spicy Masala Roti Recipe, combine all the ingredients in a large Mixing bowl (except the oil or ghee). Add a little luke-warm water at a time and knead to make a smooth dough.
Drizzle a teaspoon of oil over the dough and knead for a couple of minutes until smooth and firm. Divide the roti dough into 10 portions.
Preheat the tawa on medium heat.
Roll each portion of the dough, by dusting in flour into a thin circle. The thickness of the masala roti will be based on how thin you can roll it.
Once rolled, place the masala roti on the tawa and allow it to cook for a few seconds on medium heat.
Once you see air bubbles popping, flip and turn. Smear ghee or oil over the roti and cook on both sides until browned and lightly crisp.
Once done, remove the Mixed Millets Masala Roti from the tawa and repeat the cooking with remaining portions of the dough.
"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
