  • 3.When cool enough to handle, grind the lentil mixture.
  • 4.Make round balls of the dough and flatten into round patties between your palms.
  • 5.Press flat with your fingers, to make them about 6 cm/2 ˝ in.
  • 6.Pinch the edges about one-third way towards the center so that they are thinner than the center, and form a sort of cup.
  • 7.Take some of the lentil mixture and place it in the center of the cup, then pinch the edges to seal.
  • 8.Roll out this stuffed ball as thinly as you can, without tearing.
  • 9.Use dry flour to dust while rolling.
  • 10.Clean a griddle on both sides. Place inverted on high heat.
  • 11.Cook the rolled out roti over it, first on one side and then on the other and serve hot.
  • 12.The rotis can also be kept in a covered container until ready to serve.
