How To Make Indian Roti’s At Home

HOMEMADE ROTI’S – HEALTHY AND EASY!

We love Indian Food here at WWHQ!  A pre-requisite for all currie consumption in this house is not just the standard accompanyment of rice, but we love Roti’s and they are so easy to make, and really turn an Indian meal into a feast…..

 

INGREDIENTS (Makes about 10)

  • 60 grams Butter
  • 2 Cups White Flour (sifted)
  • 2 Cups Wholemeal Flour (sifted)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm Water

METHOD

In a large bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.

Add both flours and combine using a knife.

Add the warm water and combine using a knife.

Knead with your hands to form a smooth dough.

Cover with cling wrap and allow to rest for about 1 hour.

Divide dough into 10 portions and knead each into a ball, using a little extra flour if necessary.

Sprinkle a little extra flour on to a chopping board. Roll each ball into a thin round.

Heat a fry pan to medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Place a roti in the heated pan and cook until air bubbles appear on the uncooked surface.

Turn a cook for a short while on the other side.

Line a bowl or plate with a clean tea towel. Place each roti on the tea towel and fold the other half of the towel over the top. This helps to keep them warm.

Continue until you have cooked them all, they are ready to eat. Any uneaten roti’s freeze really well, just cover in cling wrap and place in a freezer bag. Reheat in the microwave to keep them from drying out.

Our favourite curry is the Passage To India ‘Tikka Masala’ made with a little cream instead of yoghurt folded in at the end.

What is your favourite curry?
