2 cups whole wheat or atta flour
1 tbsp margarine optional
½ tsp sugar optional
½ tsp salt
Combine the flour, sugar, salt and margarine. Add water little at a time till the dough comes together. Knead till the dough becomes soft, if it is too sticky add flour.
Roll the roti flat about ½ cm thick not too thin.
Heat a roti pan or flat pan like an omelette pan or skillet on medium high heat. Turn the roti when one side has some dots which will take a minute or two, press it with a flat spoon it will puff up. Then flip and cook the other side. Keep the rotis on top of each roti and cover with foil.
Another variation is to flatten the dough, put some butter and a little bit of sugar. Roll it into a cone then make a ball and flatten the roti again. This is the basic roti where many variations can be done like adding a filling of potatoes or dhal and flatten it this might need some oil in the pan.
I have updated the post, thank you for the questions. It is easier to make the flatbread over the stove so I haven't used the oven.
