All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 ½ cup
Baking pwd - ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Take all purpose flour in a mixing bowl.
Add salt and baking pwd, combine well.
Add little water and knead to smooth dough.
The dough should not be thick, it should be soft & smooth.
Wrap the dough in a plastic film and let it rest in fridge atleast for an hour.
This makes the dough turns real smooth.
Now take the dough out.
You can see moisture over the dough.
Sprinkle little APF and knead again to prevent sticking to hands.
Make small balls out of the dough.
Dip the ball in the flour & roll it to small disc ( like regular roti ) with rolling pin.
Turn on the flame.
Heat the cooking wire rack / girdle. ( you can find this in grocery stores )
Place the rolled roti over it.
Cook it on one side in direct flame.
Once small bubbles appear over the surface, flip it over.
Repeat the process, it will get cooked within 2 minutes, since its cooked directly in flame.
Once we get the desired color & crispy texture, remove from flame.
