Roti is similar to whole wheat tortilla, naan or pita bread. Every culture has its own style of making bread and in India there are differences within the country itself! For example, in the Northern part of India, the roti’s are thicker like a pita, whereas in the Western states they’re thinner, sometimes thinner than tortillas.

Although my ancestors hail from the state of Rajasthan, I grew up in the state of Gujrat and roti’s are a must with almsot every meal. Here in the US, I make roti’s very often, but I usually prepare the dough in a food processor.

Preperation Time: 15 mins

Serves : approximately 6 chappati’s


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tea spoon salt
  • 1/2 tea spoon oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour( keep it aside for applying to the dough while rolling into flat circles)


  1. Put all he ingredients, except the water, in a food processor and run the processor on pulse once or twice.
  2. Slowly start adding water and run the processor till you see all the ingredients blended into a ball like shape.
  3. Now remove the dough in a plate, apply little bit of oil on your hands and roll it with applying some pressure and keep it aside for 5 min. This will make the dough more smooth and even .
  4. Divide the dough into 6 equal size balls and apply some dry dough to the ball as shown in the picture.
  5. Now try to roll each ball into flat circle and cook it on the flat pan and enjoy!


1) Make sure that the water blended dough is soft enough to roll chapati’s or else sprinkle some water and keep it aside for 5 minutes.
