3 cups Snowflake flour ( I insist on Snowflake ) 1 teaspoon fine salt 4 tablespoons ghee (Clarified butter) or melted butter Boiling hot water ( approx 1 ½ cups but do measure the ‘feel of the dough - it should be soft not sticky nor dry)ghee (Clarified butter) for frying Oiled hands
Add dry ingredients into a bowl.Add melted butter or ghee (Clarified butter) over the dry ingredients Add boiling water sparingly and mix with a fork until it is cool enough to handle with your bare hands 🙌 Knead the dough into a soft ball with oiled hands , adding a sprinkling of flour or boiled water depending on the texture . Cover and leave for a while ( while you multitask - Millenial style 😄) I finished off some emails and work before remembering that I have dough in the kitchen .. thank goodness for cling wrap. Roll into 8 or 10 balls depending on the size of your non stick pan and preference. Now here’s the trick : Millenial style means planning ahead : hope you’re not not in a hurry to eat those rotis today 😄I rolled them out neatly (-: round as possible) and laid them into a round plastic Tupperware ,, each layer sprinkled with flour and covered with cling wrap.) the rotis are now happily stored in my deep freezer until the morning .
INFO & TIPS
This is probably the best method I have discovered. As old as I am , my rotis do not turn out like clouds or soft ... you could say they are a bit on the harder side so I decided that patience is definitely a virtue when attempting to make rotis. I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see how they turn out. Today : it’s a wrap 😄works out perfectly 🙌
