  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoon oil
  • butter for serving


  • Take wheat flour, salt and oil in a bowl. Mix well. Add water gradually and make a soft and smooth dough. Knead the dough well just like we do for rotis. Rest the dough for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 10-12 equal parts. Make each part into a small smooth ball.
  • Take a dough ball and roll into a oval or shaped roti. Do not roll it very thin. Brush one side of the rolled roti with water liberally. Mean time heat a iron tava. Once the tava is hot maintain medium flame.
  • Place the rolled roti on tava, water side down. Cook for 40-60 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the roti now. Once bubbles appear flip the tava and cook the other side on direct flame.
  • Cook for a minutes till chars appear the edges turn very slightly crispy.
  • Remove the cooked roti from flame and apply butter liberally. Serve tandoori roti hot.
