Know What You Eat: Basic Roti flour begins with whole wheat flour or whole millet flour and slightly warm water. Beyond the basic two ingredients the possibilities are endless. It is very common to add ghee or oil to make the dough softer and more malleable, and any variety of herbs and spices may also be added for flavor. As a traditional Indian flatbread, the humble Roti | Chapati makes the perfect accompaniment to richly spiced curries and fiery relishes. In Indian cuisine, Chapatis are often served in place of rice or naan bread, and they are a pleasing alternative to tortillas. They are also traditionally made with whole-wheat flour, so they are a good source of fiber. Roti | Chapatis are surprisingly simple and economical to make, with just a few ingredients and a quick cooking time, so it is easy to create an authentic, tasty Indian classic in just a few minutes.
