Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp or more
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Chat masala (optional) 1/2 tsp
Finely chopped coriander 1 tsp
2 pcs of parchment paper or baking sheets (10″x10″)
For the dough: mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Add yoghurt and oil. Make a pliable dough. Cover with a moist kitchen towel and keep aside for 1/2 hour.
Prepare the filling by mixing the ingredients for filling and mashing them together.
To prepare the roti: Take 2 pieces (10″x10″) of baking sheets or parchment paper.
Grease your palm. Take one portion of the dough and flatten it on the palm. Place a portion of the filling in the centre. Bring the edges together and cover the filling completely. Flatten this slightly and place it on greased paper. Cover this with another greased paper and flatten the roti and finally roll with a rolling pin. Do not roll it too thin, slightly thicker rotis are easy to handle when cooking them.
Heat a skillet or a tava. Grease with oil. Take off the upper paper on the rolled uncooked roti and carefully place to on the hot tava. Dribble oil or ghee around the roti. Turn over the roti when the edges turn golden brown to slightly dark brown, to cook the other side.
Serve with ghee or butter.
