A good ol’ classic bread that many families have fresh everyday. Enjoy with all curries, light and easily eaten.


In a large bowl, combine both flours. Make a well in the middle, pour in oil and water. Using hands, knead into a soft dough for 1-2 minutes. Portion dough into 1 and 1/2 tablespoon sized balls.

Using a patli or wooden board, flour the surface and ball, press lightly with palm of hand to make into a flat circle. Using a rolling pin, roll into 15cm sized circles.

Heat a tarvi, flat plate or a non-stick frypan on a medium-high heat, cook one side of roti for 30 seconds and the other for a 1 minute. Finish by cooking the first side again on a high heated grill or jardi for 1 minute or until it puffs. Serve hot with butter.
