Indian Roti Flatbread

roti flatbread

These flatbreads are super easy to make and you don't need to reserve them just for eating with Indian food. They are great for using with dips, and just about any curries or stews.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (this is different from standard white flour, you can typically get it from an Indian supermarket, health food store or bulk bins if your local supermarket doesn't stock it)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp butter


Combine flour, water and oil together then knead until it forms a soft dough. Roll out in a little sprinkled flour. Melt the butter in a bowl, brush it over your rolled out dough then fold and roll out again.

Fold it up into a block, then break off chunks around half the size of the palm of your hand (they're surprisingly small but will roll out to about the size of your hand spread out). Make it into a ball then roll out until it's around 3mm thick. Fry in a lightly greased frying pan until it begins to lightly brown, flip over and do the same on the other side.

Repeat with the rest of the dough.
