Roomali Rotis

Also known as kerchief rotis. I fell in love with this trial and now am almost making this everyday. Stays soft, fresh for longer.

I too tried the whole wheat version. But it was super easy. Hoping to try the other version soon and share.

Here’s the recipe:

Makes: 8 rotis

Roomali Rotis


Whole wheat flour: 2 cups

Water:as needed

Salt: 1 tsp

Oil: 1 tbsp


  1. Make a soft pliable dough mixing the flour,salt and water. Smear with oil and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Split the dough in equal measures and make medium sized balls.Take a ball of dough and roll it into medium sized circle. Dust extra flour if required. Set it aside. Do the same for another dough.
  3. Smear oil on the rolled roti and place the other rolled roti and press firmly.
  4. Dust flour and spread it as thin as possible.
  5. Place the roti on the tava and allow it to cook from both the sides evenly on medium flame.
  6. As they get cooked, they start separating easily. Separate them and remove from the tava, fold in triangle and keep aside.
  7. Smear oil/ghee and do the same for the rest of the dough.
  8. Serve hot with any sabzi or dal of your choice.
