Cast iron tawa with handle or a sturdy fry pan with handle
Take 2 cups wheat flour, salt and oil in a bowl. Mix very well. Add warm water gradually and make a soft and smooth dough. Knead the dough very well just like we do for rotis. Rest the dough for 30 to 60 minutes, covered with a damp cloth.
Divide the leavened dough into 10-12 equal parts. Make each part into a very small smooth ball.
Take a dough ball and roll into a slightly thick roti. Brush one side of the rolled roti with water liberally. In the meantime heat a iron tawa. Once the tava is hot maintain medium flame.
Place the rolled roti on tawa, watered side down. Cook that side for 40-60 seconds. Small bubbles will appear on the roti now. Once bubbles appear flip the tava upside down and cook the other side on direct flame.
Cook for a minute till chars appear and the edges turn very slightly crispy.
Remove the cooked roti from flame. Apply butter liberally and sprinkle . Serve tandoori roti hot warm with choice of side dish.
1. Do not use nonstick tava for this recipe 2. Make sure apply water well else the roti will off while you flip.
