Recipe Type Veg.
  • 3 Cups flour
  • 5 tbsp Melted ghee or margarine
  • 3 - 6 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup warm milk
  • 1 tsp Salt
How to make Roti Prata:
  • Sift the flour and salt into a big bowl, add ghee and stir till mixture looks crumbly.
  • Slowly pour in the milk and mix properly.
  • Knead the dough without adding extra flour till it pulls away from the bowl and forms a soft ball.
  • Continue kneading till the dough is slightly sticky, for about 10 minutes.
  • Cut the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball, flatten it slightly and massage it with ghee.
  • Put the flattened balls on a tray and cover it with a wet cloth.
  • Let the dough rest for about 5 hours.
  • Now evenly oil a rolling pin and work surface with ghee.
  • Roll out each ball and extend it into a paper-thin circle, about 9 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a skillet on medium flame and grease it with 1 tsp each of a vegetable oil and ghee.
  • Fry the roti gently for about 2 minutes till the bottom is properly browned.
  • When the bottom is golden brown and speckled and the roti is puffy, take out it and drain on a paper towel.
