Now that homemade Roti is allowed on the TLC-Program we thought we would share the TLC-Roti (Chapatti) Recipe with you. It is really easy to make so try it out and share with your family!
Made from very fine whole wheat flour found in Indian stores.
Some recipes call for milk or yogurt (said to make the bread softer) and oil but these are not necessary and only add calories and fat to the nutritional value.
2 cups Atta (very fine whole wheat flour)
1 cup water
This recipe makes approximately 10 to 12 rotis.
Place flour in a large bowl.
Mix about 1/2 cup of water into flour by hand.
Keep adding remaining water until the mix forms a dough that becomes manageable.
Knead the dough, then cover and rest for 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 coloured bumps.
Wait aproximately 30 seconds more than you did with the first side and check to see if there are bumps with a light brown color.
Flip roti to the first 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.
Try it out, and let us know how it works for you!
