How to Make Roomali Roti

  • 1.Mix the wheat flour and refined flour together, and knead into a soft, sticky, dough.
  • 2.Cover and keep aside for 2-3 hours.
  • 3.Shape the dough into small walnut-sized rounds.
  • 4.Place a shallow griddle upside down over the stove, and heat it.
  • 5.While waiting for the griddle to get hot, roll out the roti.
  • 6.This takes a lot of practice as the roti should be almost translucent. The dough will have to be dusted with dry flour often, as it is sticky and soft.
  • 7.When it is rolled out, keeping the heat on high, place the roti over the griddle and leave for 10-12 seconds, or until small bubbles start appearing over the surface, and the underside is a light brown.
  • 8.Turn over at once and cook till the other side is a speckled brown too.
  • 9.Remove from the griddle. Fold it into quarters and serve.
