To make roti

  • Dust well and roll into a thick roti. Apply water one side.
  • Heat a tawa with handle (light weight) and put the water applied side over the tawa.
  • Since the tawa is hot, it will stick to it. When bubbles start to appear, invert the tawa to show over the direct flame.
  • Show in circular way, more towards the outer side. The inner side will eventually get cooked.
  • Hold in angle to target the specific spots to cook it. Once golden spots appear all over, flip the pan and continue to cook. Take out in 30-40 seconds.
  • Smear with ghee generously and keep in a basket, covered with clean kitchen towel.



  • Make sure to keep the tawa hot while putting the water applied side.
  • Do not cook in low flame or medium flame, which cooks the roti and makes it easy to fall off.
