Mix all the ingredients and knead into a firm dough.
Break the dough and shape into balls of about 5 cm in diameter.
Roll into rounds 1/2 cm in thickness.
Place a griddle on high heat. After it is hot, put the roti on it, and cook a little on both sides, till it is very slightly cooked-it just about forms an upper crust.
Remove from heat and pinch the surface on one side, in a pattern, deep but not reaching the bottom.
This helps cook the roti through and prevents it from puffing up.
Now cook over direct flame, over a wire rack, turning constantly till both sides have brown specks all over and the roti is cooked through.
Smear the cooked roti with a little clarified butter and serve.
