Masala Roti #BreadBakers

Hearing this name masala roti, you might think it is spicy but let me assure you that this is a flavorful  and flaky roti.

2 Cups Whole wheat flour   

1/2 Teaspoon Carom seeds / Ajwain
1/2 Teaspoon Salt 
1 Teaspoon Chaat masala
1 Teaspoon Red chilly powder 
Ghee as required  
Extra flour for dusting / rolling the rotis
Water as required for kneading


Mix together wheat flour, salt and carom seeds and knead into a dough with sufficient water in to a soft dough. Cover and keep aside  to rest at least for 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into equal portions and roll into balls. Dust with a little dry flour and roll into roti.

Apply little ghee on the roti, sprinkle red chilly powder, chaat masala and dry flour.

Make a cut in the roti from the centre outwards and roll it in the shape of a cone to make layers.

Then twist the cone and roll it into a ball see pic 

Press this cone and roll it back into a roti.

Heat a tawa. 

Place the roti on it and cook till the underside is done. Turn it over and cook on the other side too. Apply a little ghee on both sides and cook till golden.

Remove from tawa, sprinkle some chaat masala, hold the  roti in your hands and crush it lighlty so that the layers 
 separate. Transfer into a serving plate and serve hot with any sabzi or have with a hot cup of tea.
