How to make Double Roti

Recipe By Naiya Sheth: Learn how to make Double Roti. In an earlier recipe, we learn about the making of Indian bread roti and puri. But now it's a home made recipe of Double Roti, it's a very thin and soft roti. A speciality of Gujarat, it is called be padi rotli also. Normally it is served with Aam Rus - Mango pulp. But it can be used with basundi and shrikhand also. It is different than normal fulka - puff roti. Even sometimes I make it for Frankie and wraps also. 

Preparation time - 10 minutes
Cooking time - 15 to 20 minutes
Serves - 4 persons

Ingredients to make Double Roti:

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 to 3 table spoon oil
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Oil for spreading
Dry rice flour as needed

To serve with:

Aam rus

Method to make Double roti:

  • In a big mixing bowl mix wheat flour, oil and salt properly. Knead soft dough from it with sufficient water. 
  • Keep a side covered for 10 to 15 minutes at room temp. After that again knead dough properly for 4 to 5 minutes. At this time take some ghee on palms and knead it.

  • Make equal size balls from it. Make sure to make balls in even numbers like 6, 8, 10 .....
  • On a rolling pin take a ball and roll it of 2" to 3" big. Take another ball and make same size roti from it. Now spread some oil over the upper surface of both roties. Make sure to cover the whole surface including edges.
  • Dust greased surface in dry rice flour. Now combine both roties in such way that greased and dusted surface are together. Again dust whole roti into dry rice flour and roll a thin roti carefully. Sprinkle dry rice flour when needed.

  • When a thin roti is ready place it on hot griddle - tavi. Cook at medium flame till some light brown dots appear. Turn and repeat the same. When ready remove from tavi and take between two palms. You will get two separate roties at this time. Apply ghee over the dotted surface and serve hot double roti with Aam rus, basundi or shrikhand.
  • Repeat the same for remaining.
