A simple roti is an ideal side to any curry. This is an easy to make leavened bread that is fried similar to other breads like naan and pita.
2 cups wholemeal flour
1/2 tsp salt
200 mls water
1 Tbsp olive oil
- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, water and oil, until mixture pulls away from the sides. Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface. Knead until smooth and pliable for 10 minutes.
- Preheat an unoiled frying pan to medium heat.
- Divide dough into 12 equal parts, form into rounds and cover with a damp cloth. Flatten balls with palm of your hand, then use a rolling pin to roll out each piece into a 15cm-20 cm round.
- Check the roti for 1 minute before turning over then turn again after another minute. The roti should have some darker spots when finished. Best served warm.
