Directions HIDE IMAGES
STEP 1
Chop the Onion (1/4) and Chili Pepper (1/4 cup). I'm going to make chili and onion roti, but you could just have onion or just chili if you want.
STEP 2
Sift the All-Purpose Flour (3 cup). Add Salt (to taste), Desiccated Coconut (1 cup) and Canola Oil (1 tablespoon) to the bowl and mix well.
STEP 3
Add Water (1 cup) a little at a time until it forms a dough. The dough should be like play-dough consistency, not sticky.
STEP 4
Add the chopped ingredients to the dough. I added onion and chili.
STEP 5
Shape the dough into balls.
STEP 6
Flatten the dough ball with your hands into a thick disc. To cook the roti, heat a heavy duty skillet or a cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Cook on both sides until you get them well browned.
STEP 7
Cook the rest of the roti.
STEP 8
Serve and enjoy with a curry or meat dish.
