Freshly made mealie meal rotis
A reader requested a recipe for mealie meal rotis. I had never made it myself but had enjoyed eating it on several ocassions.
A cousin helped me with this recipe. I tried the recipe which worked out very well. We enjoyed the rotis, served with a spinach chutney, for dinner.
I have since learned that some cooks add a tablespoon of butter to the dough. This is optional. I made it with no butter or oil and was pleased with the results. Here is the recipe.

This roti is delicious and yet does not contain oil or butter. If you would like to add butter, use a tablespoon of melted butter or ghee at the stage when you mix the dough.
