Print Friendly and PDF
Rumali Roti:  Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
I looooove  Rumali rotis  and they make my premier choice at restaurants.  I’m  fascinated by the way , how this splendid roti is made in hotels are, as soft &  thin as handkerchief.  But never attempted making them at home.
Feeling really adventurous,  I tried this recipe for dinner to pair with egg masala yesterday and it came out soft & tasty .
Preparing this  tender flat Indian bread at home is not a daunting or overwhelming task as it seems to be. It can be prepared easily at home.
The word  rumali  means  handkerchief  in  Hindi , and the  rumali roti  means  handkerchief  bread  due to the thinness of the roti and served folded like handkerchief. 
This roti has both flours APF & Atta. It goes well with any  vegetarian or  non vegetarian curry. 
Try out this famous Indian  Rumali Roti recipe &  make sure to prepare extras, as it would be devoured in no time..;)
 Ingredients:
  • Wheat flour / Atta                      -  1 cup
  • Maida / All purpose flour             - 1 ½ cup
  • Oil                                            - 2 tbsp
  • Ghee                                        - 2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
Method:
  1. In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, all purpose flour, oil and salt.
  2. Add required water and knead it to soft stiff dough.
  1. Cover it with damp cloth and keep aside for one hour.
  2. Make lemon sized balls out of the dough.
  1. Roll out one ball to round flat disc.
  1. Smear ghee over it.
  1. Sprinkle maida flour over it.
  1. Keep aside in a plate.
  2. Roll the second ball to the same size again.
  3. Now put it on the first roti smeared with ghee & maida.
  1. Roll out the sandwiched rotis together to a large roti as thin as possible using little maida flour for rolling.
  1. Heat a tawa / girdle on medium flame.
  2. Cook this rotis on both sides very quickly.
  1. Remove from fire and immediately separate the two rotis stuck by the paste.
  1. Fold each roti like handkerchief fold.
  1. Serve hot immediately.
  1. Makes an excellent combo with any spicy gravy & raitha.
  1. Lipsmacking soft rumali rotis ready to relish...:)

  64. Yes, Anne Regelado, non stick pan suits very good for rumali roti..;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hy Ola,
    filling in between two chapathis is just smearing of ghee & maida. It helps to separate the two rotis easily & enhance softness.
    giv a try & lemme know..;)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yes Nish, its quite tedious to handle the very large size of roti in frypan too...toring of here & there..hhaha..
    had my experience too..;)
