Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 10 Roti


  • 1.5 cups Wheat flour atta
  • ½ cup Maida all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon Oil
  • Water as needed
  • Salt as needed


  • Take wheat flour, maida and salt in a mixing bowl, mix well.
  • Add water little by little to make a soft pliable dough. Refer notes for more tips.
  • Knead for 5 mins, apply oil and keep aside for 10 mins minimum.
  • After 20 mins, knead again for 5 mins. Divide into equal sized balls.
  • Dust generously with maida and roll into thin roti.
  • Sprinkle flour in between rolling well, so that rolling out thin is easy.
  • Take out carefully and cook over hot tawa. It gets cooked really fast in few seconds.
  • Flip and cook for few more seconds, until small brown spots appear here and there.



  • You can make with half maida half atta too.
  • You can use lukewarm milk in place of water.
  • The dough should not be too tight, should be soft to handle, as well as not sticky.
  • If too tight, sprinkle a teaspoon or two and knead for making it soft. If sticky, add more flour and knead.
  • Resting the dough and kneading 5 mins before and after gives smooth and even roti.
  • Dusting in between generously helps you to roll really thin. It should not stick to the rolling stone.
  • Using maida is recommended for dusting than atta.
  • Do not cook in lower heat as it might affect the texture of the roti. It tends to get crispy if you cook in low flame for longer time.
