Roti Flatbread recipe


  • 4 cups (570 gm) whole wheat flour (can be made with 2 cups white flour/ 2 cups whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup cream, or plain yogurt (60ml)
  • 1 tsp salt (5ml)
  • 1/2 cup milk (125 ml)
  • 1/4 cup ghee or olive oil (60 ml)

Cooking Instructions

Combine flour, salt, cream or yogurt, milk and ghee or oil until a soft dough forms.

Knead well, as for making bread and set aside to rest for one hour, covered with a damp cloth.

Cut into 8 pieces and shape each piece into a ball.

Roll out into 8" (20 cm) circles on a lightly floured surface. (Avoid sticking by dusting lightly with flour)

Brush each roti with water before cooking.

The roti can then be cooked in one of the following ways:

On a heavy cast iron trivet, or skillet, over high heat

Under the broiler 3" (8 cm) away from the heat source

On a barbecue (best!)

The roti will puff up and should be turned when browning starts to occur.

This will only take a few minutes each side, so requires constant attention.
