Authentic Gujarati Style Rotis

My friend Kiran, makes very good roti's. She is from Gujarat, I thought of sharing her authentic Gujarati style recipe with you all.
Servings 12-25 rotis



  1. First, add wheat flour, salt and 1½ tablespoon oil to the bowl and mix well.
  2. Now add ½ cup of water and mix it. If you feel the dough is hard, add little more water and knead it for 2 to 3 minutes or until the dough becomes really soft.
  3. Now add the remaining oil and knead for another minute.
  4. Leave it for 5 minutes.
  5. Now heat the iron skillet / any skillet on medium high heat.
  6. Take medium lemon size dough, make it as ball.
  7. Dip this in the dry flour and roll into a thin, 6 inch circle using a roller pin.
  8. Put this roti on the hot skillet.
  9. Once you see small bubbles, turn it to the other side.
  10. Same on the other side, once you see the bubbles again turn it back.
  11. Now gently press the roti using paper towel or clean cotton or with the spatula. It will help the rotis to puff up.
  12. Once it puffs up, immediately take the rotis from the skillet.
  13. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
  14. Once two rotis are done, put a little bit of ghee on one the roti ( preferably on the side facing the skillet ) rub gently to spread it on both rotis. This will keep the rotis soft.
  15. Store the rotis in a closed container and this way rotis stay softer for 2 to 3 days.
  16. Enjoy this soft, gujarati s roti's with subjis, currys, or with your favorite raita.
