How to Make Crisp Jaadi (Fat) Roti

  • Mix all the ingredients to make a very stiff dough.
  • Divide into portions the size of cricket balls. Knead till smooth and make balls.
  • Roll into a thick chapatti about 1-1.5 cm thick.
  • Prick with a knife and place on a hot griddle on the lowest heat. Cook one side till dry.
  • Flip and let the other side crisp. Meanwhile, pinch the roti on the upper side in a circular motion till small mounds are formed on the whole roti.
  • Place a mesh with a stand over the direct flame and roast the pinched side. Keep the flame low to get crisp rotis.
  • Serve with ghee, dal and rice or with curd. It may be torn and dipped in dal, too.
