  • 2 tbsp Wheat Add only if you are just not able to manage rolling the maize dough


  • Mix the flour,ajwain and salt toghether.Add Ghee
  • Add water- 2 tbsp at a time to bring the Dough together . In my experience, try and make it tight.Let it rest for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Heat the Tawa/Gridle
  • Take a zip lock bag, cut the sides so its like a file.Coat it with little oil.
  • Take a golf sized ball of dough in your hand.Keep it between the zip lock bag.Flatten it with hands.
  • Cover the dough with the other side of the bag.Using a rolling pin(belan) roll the dough gently to make a thick disc(thicker than roti- almost like a paratha).
  • Peel the plastic off.Slowly transfer the roti in your hands and peel off the plastic from the other side too.
  • Place on the hot tawa.Wait for 2 minutes and add oil/ghee on the sides.
  • Flip and cook the other side.
