Who does not like soft soft melt in the mouth rotis/chapattis? Well…..i am always in the kitchen trying to experiment on my floury matter! I watch a lot of videos trying to learn and then put on my thinking cap and thought and thought of an easy way to make soft rotis…what started as an experiment turned out to be a real delight:)
This is a fool flop proof recipe… its easy, it has simple ingredients…..
TO MAKE ABOUT 20 MEDIUM ROTIS
500 grams of white all purpose flour (ordinary maida)
1 teaspoon of baking powder
200 grams of white natural yogurt (curd/dahi), you can use home made or store bought
1 teaspoon of salt
warm water to knead if necessary (this all depends on the consistency of the yogurt and size of the egg)
Put the flour, salt and baking powder in a big bowl. Add the yogurt and egg and mix. Knead and add warm water if necessary. Knead to a smooth dough for about five minutes. The dough should be smooth and elastic. Put it in a big container and cover it. Put it in the sun for about six hours. If you are in a country without sun, dont worry, keep it in the kitchen . After the given time knead it again for a few minutes. It should be a little sticky, not much but a bit. Flour your hands and make medium size balls out of the dough. Flatten each piece and then roll out into about half a centimetre thickness. Heat a non stick pan or tawa or ceramic pan and cook on both sides trying just to flip over once. They should baloon up. Serve with your favourite meal.
