Rumali Roti

 As most of us know rumali means handkerchief ,so does the rumali roti too. I know , making of this roti is bit tedious but everything becomes easy when u give a try. U'll understand what i mean when u relish this roti.. Seriously, I've become the greatest lover for this roti and it has been a regular dish in my household nowadays. U can see this roti at least two times in a week in my home and I don mind making though it's bit consuming.. Well worth the effort..  Try and lemme know guys !!!


Ingredients :


Whole wheat flour -- 1 1/2 cups
APF / Maida --1/2 cup

Salt -- as needed
Water -- as needed to make a soft dough
Oil -- to apply , may be a few tsp




Method :
  • Add both the flour in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add the needed salt and combine well. Slowly add water lil by lil to a soft pliable dough. Finally apply on the outer side of the dough and rest for min 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal balls and take only one and cover the rest with a damp cloth on top of the bowl.
  • Dust the working area with lots of  flour and start rolling like u do for normal roti's. Roll out very thin , and make sure the edges have to be  very thin. Roll the rot's as thin u can and pick up slowly without tearing it and fly it in the air.. Just like the parotta style.. To be frank, am a novice too, So I did roll  out very thin and almost skipped the flying part.
  • As many of us don have a rumali tava , simply use any of ur mixing bowl / a heavy bottomed pan inverted just like in the pic and heat to the maximum point. The pan has to be smoking hot !!!
  • Lay the rolled roti on the hot pan and let cook for few seconds, yes, only for 5 to 7 secs. flip the roti and again cook for the same time. U may refer the pic.. A real rumali roti will not have any brown spots on the roti.. I agree, my roti is not perfect as u could see some spots , I must say, the collage ( preparation ) is different and final display of the roti's are different. Yep, I tried two times, but forgot to take the pictures while making the second time. 
  • Fold the roti's and relish hot with any curry /gravy .. The roti stays soft for even 2 days though it's thin..
 
Notes :
  • Followed Vah chef's recipe and turned out so good..
  • U might wanna be ready for ur smoke alarm as this process often triggers the situation.
Happy eating guys

  4. Romalis are amazing! Love the subzi you've got there too :) I too am not big on pies, but I like the nutty crust as opposed to the doughy kind or the graham cracker one! And you are right Mango does it for me!

  30. Roti are next on my list. I just tried my hand at making chapatis but it played havoc with my stainless steel pan. I cooked them in the pan, and ended up burning the bottom of the pan. Thanks for the detailed pictures on the cooking method.
