Roti/chapati | Indian Flat Bread | How To Make Soft Rotis

Rotis or flat breads, also called Chapati, are made from whole wheat flour and served with any vegetable dish or curries.  It is generally considered a North Indian dish, though it is made and available now in almost every part of India.

Here is how you make a roti..


  • Whole Wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Little wheat flour or rice flour for dusting

Cooking Appliance Required:
  • Board and rolling pin
  • Tawa

How To Prepare Roti/Indian Flat Bread:
  • Add a pinch of salt and 1 tsp of oil to the flour.  Then add about 1/2 cup of water gradually to the flour and knead it into a nice soft dough (take care that it doesn’t get sticky).

  • Divide the dough into 5-6 equal sized balls and roll out each ball of dough into round shapes (neither too thick nor too thin) using a little wheat flour for dusting.

  • Heat the tawa and place the rolled out dough on it and cook for a few minutes. 

  • When small brown spots start appearing, flip it over to the other side and cook for a few seconds.  Now use a heavy spoon or spatula to apply pressure on the roti so that the roti puffs up. Do the same on the other side.

  • Remove from tawa and serve with any side dish or curry of your choice.

  • Rotis have to be served hot.  So if you are not going to serve them hot, then keep them in a casserole or any container, which can keep it warm.
