How can you make Soft rotis with Fulka wala atta?

Making the perfect roti might appear to be quite a challenge for someone who is just getting started in the kitchen. It's not simple to achieve the dual objective of creating roti that is both circular and soft at the same time. 

If you've attempted every recipe promising smooth and fluffy rotis and failed, know that the key to success is not the recipe itself, but the expertise with which it is followed. And all you have to do is figure out the appropriate ways to make it work.

A few Tips For Making Soft Rotis

  1. Kneading the dough for the roti is the first step. When kneading the dough, use warm water to make the roti softer. Also, the roti dough should be squidgy but not sticky. Allow the dough to rest for a few minutes before forming the rotis.
  2. Knead the dough one more time before beginning to make the rotis. The dough may have hardened over the resting period, but kneading it again can soften it. Also, when rolling and cooking rotis, keep the dough covered with a wet cloth.
  3. Another good idea is to oil your rolling pin and board before you begin. This will keep the roti from adhering to both surfaces, and you won't have to use as much dry flour, which can cause the roti to stiffen when cooking.
  4. Many people believe that the roti will be softer if it is thinner. That is certainly not the case. A roti that is too thin might dry out and become papery. As a result, your rolled roti should be neither too thick nor too thin.
  5. Here's a clever way to produce fluffy rotis. Cook your roti on a nonstick tawa until bubbles appear on both sides, then place it on the direct flame to puff up. Just remember not to leave the roti on the tawa or over the flame for too long; it should only be cooked for a couple of minutes.
  6. Always preheat the tawa you'll use to create your rotis so they don't spend too much time on the gas. The shorter the cooking time, the softer the roti.
  7. Lastly, before throwing the roti on the pan, dust off any extra flour. Your roti will become dry and hard if you use too much dry flour.
