There are a lot of types of flatbread out there! We’ll be doing the basic type but linking multiple variations in this recipe post! Along with being a fast food to cook- it’s also amazingly cheap and you can pretty much use any oil you want! Save money on store-bought flatbreads and make these for less than a pound!
Usually, I use wheat flour but I made besan ki roti’s a few weeks ago and they were delicious! If you’ve got any besan flour to use – make sure to try those! Making flatbread usually has the same method – so you don’t need to worry if you change it a bit. Less water makes them drier- less oil makes them harder to roll. Just make sure you’ve got the right amount of those to the amount of flour used. Never forget that a pinch of salt goes a really long way.
You can use crushed cardamon with this recipe to give this a really refreshingly nice taste! You can watch that version on YouTube.
It’s hard to go wrong with this basic besan ki roti! Only using these simple three ingredients; water, ghee/oil and besan gram flour with a little bit of salt as well! It goes well with a lot of Indian dishes- I enjoy it on its own though.
If the dough is too wet; add some more flour to the mix- if it’s too dry add some more water. Make sure to have a balance with it being slightly sticky and reapply flour to the board to make it not stick.
Also to spice up the recipe you can also add some herbs into the mix and other ingredients!
