Roti - Indian Flat Bread (Vegan)

Roti 
(Indian Flat Bread)


ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter (or oil)
  • 1 cup hot water

preparation steps:


1. place flour, salt and vegan butter in bowl

2. slowly add hot water and mix with fingers

3. knead just until dough is soft and holds together-do not overwork dough

4. form into ball

5. place a few drops of oil on bowl and dough ball

6. let sit for 5 or ten minutes

7. divide into 8 even sized balls and roll between palms until smooth

8. flatten slightly and roll out (with flour to keep dough from sticking)into thin flat rounds

9. brush off excess flour

10. place in heated skillet and lightly cook on both sides until golden brown spots begin to form-use spatula or tea towel to gently press and turn dough while cooking-this will press air into the bread and it will puff up

11. remove from heat and brush with vegan butter (or olive oil)

12. serve warm
