Roti BreadMakes 12 servings
2 cups durum wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until dough pulls away from the bowl. Flip dough onto a lightly-floured surface and knead until it is smooth, about 10 minutes.
2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Separate dough into 12 equal balls. Cover with a damp cloth and flatten with the palm of your hand. Using a rolling pin, continue to flatten dough into thin equally-sized circles.
3. Cook bread on skillet for 1 minute, then flip over and cook for an additional 1 minute. Serve warm with garlic chutney (recipe below).
