To make the rotis soft try cooking them turning the following way. The first flip right after you place them on the pan aprox 5-6 secs. Now cook this side for about 1 minute or until soft brown spots on the bottom. Now last flip for the roti to rise up a bit and its ready.
I love them every time i have them.
I cooked it in a regular pan and flipped it when it started to puff up and it turned out wonderful and soft. Would love to find the right spices to add to it to flavor it up a little. Will also try the half white half wheat suggestion.
We really enjoyed these. Found it a bit difficult to roll thinly, and I was surprised by how crispy they were. The roti at our favourite restaurant is soft and pliable. Does anyone have a suggestion on how I might make these so they come out soft?
Fantastic! Great bread recipe- I cooked it on a crepe skillet on high heat, and noticed that if you flip it one extra time, the bread puffs up and fills with hot air- it's great! It turned out like pita bread. Definitely a keeper!
My whole family loves this bread! Good made with all white or half white/half wheat flour. I cook it on a very hot non-stick griddle. Make sure you roll out the dough as thin as possible! Great with spicy Indian dishes.
This is my # 1 favorite recipe from this site! I have made this many, many times for my 3 year old. He says, "Make some rollie, please, Momma." Thanks for posting this great, easy, and wonderful tasting recipe! (Reminds me of a tortilla, we eat it with butter).
not like the rotli i get from my gujarati best friend. this recipe came out way too dry and hard, and i made it various times with different mixes of flours and various amounts of liquid. won't repeat for indian foods, but it's not bad for a tortilla recipe...
Good...folded these to use as a sort of soft taco with chili for filling. You can't roll these up, they'd break (too stiff). Nice and chewy and it added to the meal, more filling than a tortilla or taco shell would have been. I cooked them right in the pan like you'd cook anything else, rather than flipping the pan over.
