ROOMALI ROTI
   Making roomali roti at home was my long time plan and somehow i  kept on postponing it and suddenly one day i decided to make it and tried at home and it turned out pretty well. But still i felt it has be little soft and attempted on the next day, and it was much better than the first attempt. My hubby who loves roomali roti enjoyed this.

roomali roti

INGREDIENTS:( yield 10-12 rotis)

WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR 1 CUP
MAIDA | ALL PURPOSE FLOUR 1/2 CUP
MILK 1/4 CUP
WATER 1-2 TBLSP
OIL 2 -3TBLSP
SALT AS NEEDED

ROTI
METHOD:

  • In a wide vessel,sieve both the flour and mix with salt and oil.
  • Slowly add milk ( luke warm milk) and mix with the flour to make a pliable dough. Add 1-2 tblsp of water as and when needed.

  • Cover it and keep it aside for 1 hour.
  • After an hour make equal portions of dough and make lemon sized balls out of it.

  • Take out a ball and roll it into a small roti and spread a tsp of oil to this.
  • Dust some all purpose flour over this . Alternatively rice flour can also be used for this.
  • Roll one more ball into a small size roti.
  • Place this over the dusted roti like a sandwich.

  • Roll this into a thin roti and meanwhile heat a tawa.
  • The tawa should be very hot.
  • Transfer the thinly rolled roti to the tawa and immediately you can see bubbles forming on the roti.
  • Flip this and let the other side to cook.
  • These actions should be quickly done , otherwise it will get burnt and end up in crispy rotis.

  • When it is warm, slowly separate the two rotis. This can be easily done.

  • Flod it into triangles and do the repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
  • Serve hot with any your favorite side dish.
  • Though we had with mixed vegetable curry , when i made this and was ready to click, i had some little dal makhani which i made in the morning and clicked the pic with dal makhani!!.

Note:

  1. Always make the dough very soft else the roti will turn out hard.
  2. Roll the sandwiched roti as thin as possible. The edges should be very thin.
  3. Alternatively you can keep a pan upside down and use this for cooking the rotis instead of using a tawa.

Hi, I m new to ur website and now a days started to keep looking at ur recipes for almost all my new cooking adventures… i tried this rumali roti yesterday.. it came out well…. how ever have a small query in the process… When we put the rolled one in tawa, only the outer parts of both sandwich rotis gets cooked… what happens to the innner side.. do we have do anything in specifc for it or is it like romali rotis are cooked only on one side.. pls clarify…Thanks

Reply
admin April 20, 2013 - 9:22 am

Hi radhika,
thanks for trying out. Reg the query, as the rotis are rolled thin , normally it get cooked on the inner side too. Normally we don't make anything specific for this to get cooked. It will get cooked on its own
