Its simple to make a regular type roti, but sometimes to impress my daughter and get her to have roti I roll it up in interesting ways. During our car travels in India, many a times we used to park the car near a tea kadai (shop) for our driver to get his caffeine fill. Next to the tea kadai there was always a parota making place and I used to watch with great interest at the way they worked the dough, spreading, folding and finally make into balls for making parota. I was talking to my daughter about it and I decided to make the roti rolled the parota way to show her.
Whole Wheat Flour Dough - 2 portions
Whole Wheat Flour - Enough to dab for making roti
Ghee - 1 tbsp
1. Take one portion of the dough and dab it with some flour. Roll and spread the dough into a think roti.
2. Spread some ghee over the roti and roll it into a thin rope.
3. Coil the rope into a ball and then roll it out into a circle again. This time make a thick roti.
4. Cook them on the tava on both sides, spread some ghee and serve them hot.
