August 12, 2021

Breads are eaten all across the globe in many different versions, varying from country to country and culture to culture. In India, Roti or as it is popularly known as Indian flatbread is a quintessential part of many Indian cuisines. Made with various kinds of flours, roti has many variants in India, more than one can count.

However, like other breads around the world, roti serves as a staple accompaniment to other dishes. Derived from Sanskrit word ‘Rotika’, meaning bread, roti or chapati is extremely versatile in a satisfying way, especially when eaten fresh.

Let us go through the journey of making the perfect roti from the scratch and how it can be made more healthy and nutritious.

The Art of Perfect dough

Making perfect dough can be a tedious affair, especially in Indian kitchens where usually there are no exact measurements of ingredients. One just knows by touch whether the dough is of perfect consistency or not. However, all you need to make perfect Indian flatbread is two ingredients: water and wheat flour.

  • Take flour in a bowl but ensure to add water little by little as required. More water will make the dough sticky and thus difficult to knead.
  • Quantity of water depends on the quantity of flour. So keep adding water as per requirement.
  • Keep kneading the dough until the dough is mixture of soft and firm. Gather the mixture in one big ball and sprinkle enough water to make soft but not sticky.
  • Make sure to set it aside for 30 minutes to get just the right texture. A brief final kneading for 2 minutes with knuckles is enough and you are done.
  • The process of kneading brings out the glutinous property of the dough, while resting almost self knead the dough, which helps in making soft and fluffy rotis. Enjoy them, piping hot with various curries, dal and vegetables.
  • The wheat flour dough can be refrigerated for 2-3 days. Make sure the bowl is spacious enough and should be properly covered to prevent it from drying.
