Chef Tips:

  1. You can use olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
  2. If your dough is too soft then you will not be able to roll it, it is better to adjust water accordingly while kneading.
  3. Serve these yummy roti’s with paneer butter masala or chicken tikka masala and many such recipes.


    • I think you should carefully add water while kneading, also try to make small, thin and round roti;s. Do not apply oil again and again. Keep the roti’s in the paper plate first and then wrap in the foil paper, your roti will not become dry for long time. I hope it would be helpful to you.For further queries, do not hesitate to ask.
