This is the staple flat bread of India. Half a billion Indian women make this every day. This is easy and delicious! I wanted to photograph all of it in a nice stack, but my kiddos ate it just as fast as it came off the stove! :)
This is great alone, would complement eggs in the morning, even soup at night. Very versatile. Who would think that such simple ingredients could be so good?

Total Time: About 1 hour start to finish

Yield: 14 roti breads

Source: Modified from a recipe in a Funion Family cookbook


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour, more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus additional at the end
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup or less of water
  • butter


  1. Add your flour, salt and oil to a bowl.
  2. Gradually add your water. I only needed just over 3/4 of a cup. Too much, too sticky. Too little, too crumbly. Gradual is best.
  3. Work your water in and combine well.

  5. Dust your counter with flour.
  6. Roll your dough into 14 balls about this size.

  8. Flatten with a rolling pin, or your hand.
  9. Place in your medium heat pan, no oil needed. Cook about 3 minutes on this side.

  11. Flip and cook about 3 more minutes.
  12. Spread with butter, sprinkle a tiny amount of sea salt and enjoy! Best when eaten right after they're made.
