1Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and keep aside.

2Take 1 plastic sheet and lightly grease it with oil.Flatten 1 portion of the dough on it and cover with another plastic sheet.Lightly press on the plastic sheet evenly to make a 100 mm. (4”) diameter round.

3Lift the roti with the plastic sheets, peel off the top plastic sheet and invert the roti on a hot non-stick tava (griddle). Finally peel off the other plastic sheet as well.
