A common flatbread in South Asia and the Caribbean is called roti. Here is a straightforward recipe for creating homemade roti. Roti is also known as chapati or phulka in some regions.
1 cup of all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour
1 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
Slowly add the water and mix until a dough forms. You may need to add a little more water or flour to get the right consistency. The dough should be smooth and not too sticky.
Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until it becomes elastic.
Divide the dough into 4 equal balls.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the dough balls into a thin circle, about 8 inches in diameter.
Place the roti on the hot skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and puffed up. Brush each side lightly with vegetable oil
Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
Serve the rotis hot
