Instructions
To knead the dough

  2. Add ½ tbsp oil
  3. Add the water
  4. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together
  5. Knead for five minutes or until the dough becomes soft and smooth
  6. Shape balls the size of large lemons out of the dough
  7. On a rolling board flatten the ball into a circle and sprinkle a little flour on top of it
  8. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a thin circle
Cooking the roti
  1. Once the dough is rolled out, spread water evenly over the rolled dough
  2. Place the roti (rolled dough) on a hot tava
  3. As the roti cooks, you will see the dough begin to rise in bubbles
  4. Allow the roti to cook for a minute on a medium flame
  5. Hold the tava upside down (the roti will stick to it) over a low flame, allowing the other side of the roti to cook.
  6. Rotate the tava so all sides of the roti are cooked evenly
  7. Remove the roti from the tava using a flat spatula
  8. Spread a little ghee on the roti
  9. Serve hot!
