Makes: 4 rotis
  • 115 g (4 oz) gram (chickpea) flour
  • 115 g chapatti or wholemeal flour
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) water
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp melted ghee or butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander (cilantro)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • Melted ghee or butter for brushing
  1. Put all the ingredients except for the oil and water into a large bowl. Mix well.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the melted ghee and most of the water. Mix well. Add more water if necessary to achieve a soft and slightly sticky dough.
  3. Knead in the bowl for 1 minute, then cover and leave the dough to rest for 1 hour.
  4. Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Flour a surface and roll each piece of dough out to about 15 cm (6") in diameter.
  5. Brush one side of the roti with melted ghee then cook ghee side down on a hot pan for 1 minute. During this time brush the top surface of the roti with melted ghee.
  6. Turn the roti over and cook the other side for 1 minute.
You can replace the chopped green chilli with ½ tsp of chilli powder if you prefer. Make sure you chop the onion finely to make it easier to roll out the rotis prior to cooking.
