Classic Whole Wheat Roti Recipe

Ingredients

  • For the dough:
  • 2 cups (500 ml) whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) jeera (cumin seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) salt
  • 1 cup (250 ml) water
  • For jeera paratha:
  • 6 tablespoons (90 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) dry wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) red chili powder

Method

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, cumin seeds, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, and salt. Mix well. Add water as required and knead a dough. Set the dough aside for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Divide the dough and make small balls. Using a rolling pin, roll balls into 4-5 inch (10-12.5 cm) tortillas. Add vegetable oil, flour, and red chili powder. Fold into a half, then add more oil and fold to form a small triangle. Repeat the same steps with the remaining dough and set aside.

Step 3

Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the triangle paratha and cook, turning once, for a few minutes. Add more vegetable oil and turn again. Fry on both sides until golden brown.
