Khooba Roti


Recipe Source: Maayeka
Ingredients
Wheat Flour: 2 cups
Hot water: 1 ½ cups (or as needed)
Salt: needed
Ghee/butter: 3tbsp + for brushing on top


Method Of Preparation
Take wheat flour in a big bowl, add salt and melted ghee, rub and mix well.
Now add water and make a medium soft dough, cover and rest for 10 minutes.
Take a small ball from the dough and dust with flour.
Make a medium thick chapati with a rolling pin.
Place this on a medium hot griddle and cook slightly from one side till colour changes slightly (kacha pakka)
Now remove the roti (flat bread) from the griddle and take it on a plate.
Pinch the roti all over in a circle using your thumb and finger,as shown in the picture to make indentations.
Now again place it on the gridddle and cook from both the sides on medium heat.
Now remove from the gridlle and cook directly on open flame on low heat
Cook till golden spot appears on both the sides.
Generously smear with ghee/butter all over.
