Step 1

To make the dough, first mix the flour, salt, and oil together in a large bowl.

Step 2

Add water gradually, kneading all the time with your hand (for 8-10 mins) to make the dough firm and smooth. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.

Step 3

Divide the dough into small to medium balls. Roll the balls in the palms of your hands. Dust the balls lightly with flour and roll into a flat round circle using a roti board and rolling pin.

Step 4

Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat until it is quite hot. Place the rolled roti onto the pan and turn up the heat slightly.

Step 5

Cook until small bubbles appear on the underside for 20-30 seconds and then turn. Cook this side until the base now has small dark beige spots.

Step 6

Turn the bread over, continue cooking until the roti turns golden and fluffs up. Apply ghee and serve hot.
