A good thing about rotis is that you can half roast and pile them and do the final roast just before serving

TANDOORI ROTI Makes 4-5

INGREDIENTS
3 cups slightly coarse wheat flour
3 tbsp ghee
3 tbsp curd
Salt to taste

PREPARATION
Knead the flour with some water, the yoghurt and 1 tablespoon ghee. Keep it slightly stiff. Set aside for at least 2 hours.

Knead for another 10 minutes with the reamining ghee. Make into balls about 2 inches diameter.
Roll to a thickish – arount 5 mm thick – round of about 7 inches wide.

Heat 2 griddles. On directly on the stove and the second placed inverted over it. Sprinkle a few drops of water on it and when they sizzle to dray immediately you know its hot enough.

Place one or two roti on the sloping sides. When they’re done they’ll begin to slide off. Flip and repeat.

If you can use a coal fire, nothing like it, for that genuine smoky flavour.

Drizzle with a little ghee and serve hot.

    […] Three people wrote in to say I’d forgotten the most interesting thing about Tandoori Chicken. That its good for dieters. Hmm, maybe, but well I’m going to modify that a bit here. If you’re on diet and you absolutely have to go out to dinner at a restaurant that serves Indian food, chances are the most healthy thing on the menu probably is the Tandoori Chicken. Dieticians suggest it. It will definately have less fat on it and in it than any other dish. I’ve seen dieting friends order a full Tandoori Chicken, where they would have otherwise had a leg piece, and then pat themselves on the back. Get real. Look at your plate. Use your head. Er, and skip the ghee on theRoti. […]
