Dosti roti is specially for people who like to eat really thin and soft rotis. It can be a smaller  version of rumali roti to make wraps.

Required ingredients

  • 1 cup flour plus extra to roll the  roti
  • 1/4th cup of milk
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch   baking soda(optional)
  • Water to knead the dough

Directions & How to

  • Make soft and pliable dough by combining flour, salt, baking soda, milk, 1 tsp oil and water. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside for ½ an hour.
  • Pinch a small portion of dough as you would for puris and make smooth ball. Make 10- 12 balls.
  • Dab oil all over 2 balls with a pastry brush or dip the ball in the oil lightly.
  • Press the 2 balls together and flatten with your palm. Lightly press it in dry flour and roll out a roti of your girdle’s size or as much convenient.
  • Put the roti onto the hot girdle. When one side seems cooked, turn over the other side pressing lightly with a clean cloth to ensure even coking. The specks on the roti should be pink not brown.
  • Take the roti off the girdle and separate the two after 1 minute. They will easily pull off because of the oil.
  •  Repeat likewise with rest of the dough. Keep the rotis covered in a clean cloth in a casserole, till serving.
