Ingredients

    2 cups Atta (very fine whole wheat flour)
    1 cup water

Directions

Makes aproximately 10 to 12 six inch rotis.
put flour in large bowl.
mix about 1/2 cup of water into flour by hand. Keep adding remaining water until forms a dough that becomes managable. Knead the dough; cover; let rest for about 25 minutes.
make a ball of dough about the size of a walnut. Roll the ball in some whole wheat flour. Flatten the ball and then use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a circle aproximately 6 inches. Place on a pan at medium heat. When you see "blisters" form, turn the roti. You should see little light colored bumps. Wait aprox. 30 seconds more than you did with the first side and check to see if therer are bumps with a light brown color. Flip roti to 1st side again only this time remove the pan and place directly over the flame. The Roti will puff up. Place it in a roti container or foil and repeat with the remainder of the dough.
If you have never made them before, you can get an idea from http://indianfood.about.com/od/breadrecipes/ig/How-to-Make-Chapatis/

    Hi, I think you heed to recalculate this recipe. The calorie count is wrong. I've been using your recipe for the past couple of weeks and I think it's great, bt it's def more dn 16 cal :-( ! 1 cup of atta has 407 calories, so 2 cups comes to about 814 which makes 81 cal for 10 or about 69 cal for 12 - 3/17/10

  • Calorie count is way off. According to the nutritional breakdown only .03 of a cup of flour per serving, multiply by 8 and that's only a 1/4 cup of flour for the whole recipe. - 12/28/11
