Roti - Tawa chapathi (Indian Bread)

Roti or Tawa Chapati is an Indian Bread made from whole wheat flour(Aata). It is very popular in northern and western part of India.

Today i am going to show you how to make Roti or Tawa chapathi (Indian Bread).


1. Whole wheat flour 2 cups
2. Water 1 cup
3. Ghee or Butter 1/2 cup (for applying on the Roti)


1. Take Wheat flour in a wide bowl.
2. Slowly mix water in this flour, knead well. It has to come to a consistency of a soft dough.
3. Keep it 30 minutes a side.
4. Make the dough into small round balls.
5. Take one dough ball; dust some dry wheat flour on its top of it. With the help of a wooden chapati-roller, flatten the dough into a round thin circle(Roti).(Use enough dry flour to avoid the dough from sticking to the wooden roller).
6. Carefully place the flattened dough on a pre-heated tawa(pan) on a medium flame.
7. Heat the roti on till both the sides till slighty brown.
8. Remove from Pan and place the roti on the flame till roti balloons up.
