For the Rottis 
  • Wheat flour- 1 cup 
  • Ajwain/ carom seeds- 2 tsp
  • water as needed to prepare a soft dough 
  • Salt per taste . 


In a bowl add wheat flour , ajwain, salt n just enough water n knead well to form a soft dough .. keep aside for 1/2 an hour. 

Knead the dough again n divide the dough into equal lemon sized balls .

Sprinkle little flour on the dry surface kitchen platform or a wooden chapthi maker n place the dough ball over it n roll with a rolling pin very gently n not too hard  to a round 5 inch disc . 

Heat a tawa n place the rotti over it. Cook on one side for half minute and flip on the second side. Cook for another half minute and smear some oil  on one side. Now flip this oiled side onto the tawa. Now you will see the rotti fluffing .
