Freshly made Rotis made with no dairy products
This is a very simple roti recipe that works well and is very quick to make. In half hour you can have 5 fresh, soft, warm rotis. I used just oil as I was creating a vegan roti, but you can choose to use butter or ghee in similar amounts that oil has been used.
Here is the recipe.
Roti rising as it cooks
Roti cooking on tava/pan. Lightly pressing dough with spatula, encourages it to rise
Create a small hollow in a piece of dough. Encase a small amount of flour in the space, form a ball, then roll
Ingredients mixed together to create this ball of dough
Oil is added to Dry Ingredients
*I learned this tip from a family member, Shobha, who has also contributed several recipes. Add just a small amount of flour in the hollow of one piece of dough, then enclose and form a little ball before rolling.
It is supposed to help the roti to rise. It works well with most types of flours. Do try this tip.
This vegan roti is not just nice tasting and very quick to make, it is also healthy for you as there is very little fat used. Canola oil is regarded as one of those good for you oils. Here is a link if you would like to find out more about the benefits of, canola oil.
If you do not have Canola Oil where you live, just use the oil that you generally use or look for a “good for you oil” in stores near you.
