Roomali Roti

This is my post for Day3 BM#7 Group2 "Combo Meals".After browsing a lot of websites finally came up with this recipe,it was silky soft...made vegetable kuruma to side this soft roomali roti....Tried with regular chapathi tawa as i didnt want to use the inverted kadai....
Wheat flour- 1cup
Maida- 1cup
Salt -1/2 tsp

For Binding rotis:
Rice flour-1/2cup or maida-1/2cup or Wheat flour-1/2 cup

1.Mix wheat flour and maida with salt in a wide vessel,sprinkle water to make a soft dough,and knead for 10 minutes adding the oil and cover the dough with a wet cloth in a vessel and keep it aside for 2hours.
2.Take the rice flour on a plate.

The tutorial from Vahrevah's is here for reference ..

3.Make equal sized balls of the dough,take 2 balls and make small puris,Take one puri apply some oil on one side say 2tsp and put the oiled part over the flour so flour sticks to the oil and place another puri over the flour dusted side and roll this to a thin roti.
4.Heat a dosa tawa,really hot..cook the thin roti on both sides until you see small brown spots on both sides-Dont over cook,it might harden the roti and then take off heat and peel one roti from the other.
5.Fold like a kerchief and serve with vegetable curry.

7.Link to the vegetable kuruma

This has been on my to do list for quite a while. Your rotis look really thin.

Pavani said...

Never tried rumali roti at home, you made it sound very easy. Will give it a try. Rotis look yumm.

Seems to be an easy one !!!!Will try it out soon.

Srivalli said...

Sounds interesting Sabina, why do you have to stick two puris over ?..

PJ said...

I have never tired these at home. Platter looks yum

Gayathri Kumar said...

Looks so delicious..

sabina said...

@ valli,,this gives a soft texture...coz we cook only on one side and the stuck part inbetween is seperated because we apply flour and fat to bind...and this helps in making really thin rotis when u roll the two small puris stuck to eachother....
