Blog Event “Tasty Thursdays” – A wheat food known as Roti or Chapati

This week, I prepared one favorite North Indian preparation for our Tasty Thursdays (weekly blog event) known as Roti or chapathi.roti swelled on flame

It is a very healthy food item made up of wheat flour. The wheat flour is mixed in a hollow plate or container with your hands pouring water little by little to form into smooth dough. You may add a little salt also for taste. When it forms into perfect dough, make small balls of it. For preparing the roti, take a round shaped flat wooden or stainless steel board known as ‘chakla’ in Indian language and spread each ball of dough into round large shapes by pressing with a wooden or steel smooth rod known as ‘belan’.

Now, place a flat pan on flame and when it is hot, bake the spreaded large round forms of dough known as “roti” on both sides. One side should be baked for ten seconds and the other side of it baked for 20 or 30 seconds. Then remove the pan from flame and bake the roti on direct flame to make it swell like a balloon by turning both sides. Now, your roti or chapati is ready for eating. Serve it hot with any dish of legumes, pulses or vegetable recipes. You will enjoy  it a lot besides being healthy.

The rotis after final swelling are ready to be served with a side dish.
