Roomali Roti

Roomal means kerchief.Roomali roti means rotis made as soft and thin as kerchief.This roti has both flours mixed together and prepared as a tandoor roti.Bcoz,rotis are prepared on a red hot kadai,inverted over the stove.These rotis were soft and thin.It went well for our party.Rotis can be had with any side dish.


Ingredients:
1.Wheat flour                   -                1 cup
2.All purpose flour          -                 1 cup
3.water                            -                 1 cup
4.Oil                               -                  2 tbsp
5.Salt                               -                 as required

Method:
* Take a mixing bowl,add all the ingredients except oil.
* Prepare a soft and elastic dough.
* Apply oil and keep it aside for an hour.
* Knead it again well.
* Divide the dough into equal sized balls.


* Dust the floor with flour.
* Roll the balls into a thin - big sized roti.
* Mean while place a pan or kadai inverted over the stove.
* Let it be really hot.
*  Now tap the excess flour and  place the roti on the kadai.
* Immediately the rotis will start bubbling.
* After a minute,flip it over and cook for a minute as shown in the picture.
* Brush the rotis with oil or ghee and fold it.
* Serve it with any side dish.
Note:
After rolling the roti,we can just pull it a bit to enlarge it.To get a large sized roti,the dough shud be very soft and sticky.Dont keep the roti on the kadai more than 2 minutes,if not it will become stiff and crisp.
