Rumali Roti (Thin Flatbread)


Hello everyone, today on public demand I got you all the recipe of Rumali Rotis. These are very-very thin just like handkerchiefs thus named rumali roti. Traditionally they are made large size and cooked on an upside down wok (made up of clay). Mostly enjoyed with Tandoori & Muglai cuisines, but for us its just not the case. We have it with any masala curry we prepare. This roti has both flours All purpose flour (maida) & Whole wheat flour (Atta). It goes well with any  vegetarian or  non vegetarian curry. Usually in Restaurants, chef flip the rolled dough in air to make thinnest possible stuff, but learning that technique is not very easy. I tried it, but failed and got a roti with so many holes. So I have started preparing it on a pan and viola !!!! the results are almost the same. So here is a very simple and easy to follow recipe.

Video Link - 
Ingredients :
  • Whole wheat flour/Atta - 1/2 cup
  • All purpose flour/Maida - 1/2 cup
  • Rice flour - 2 tbsps
  • Oil/ghee - 2 tbsps
  • Water - to knead the soft dough
Method :
  • Mix both the flour well and with water knead a very soft dough. Cover with a damp kitchen towel and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • Make 2 small sized balls of the dough.
  • Roll out both of them half way through or 4-5" diameter.
  • Now apply some oil on one of the rolled roti and sprinkle rice flour.
  • Cover it with the other rolled roti and press gently.
  • Roll out the sandwiched rotis together to a large thin roti (As per your griddle/tawa size) using a little dry flour.
  • Heat a tawa on high flame and cook this roti on both sides very quickly (as shown in the video), be very fast.
  • Remove from tawa and immediately separate the 2 rotis.
  • Fold each roti into a triangle and keep soft in a casserole or a big bowl placing some paper towels below and covering with a damp cloth (This helps in maintaining them soft).
  • Enjoy with either vegetarian or non-vegetarian cuisines. 
Note :
  • If rice flour not available then all purpose flour can also be used.
  • You can add a couple of tbsps of oil while kneading the dough (I usually don't add) 
  • Also for more better results, knead the dough with milk.
  • The dough should be very soft, otherwise the roti will become very hard.
  • The griddle/tawa should be very hot and you hae to be very fast while cooking them.

    I made it by omly wheat flour, they became hard on .Do you think besides kneading atta soft, does adding milk/ oil will make it softer.Though I wud prefer it less oily.

    1. Sonia yes you can knead the wheat flour with milk a bit softer. Also I would suggest you to be very fast while cooking, just few seconds it take. Also as I have mentioned already keep them covered with wet muslin cloth and then cover them with a lid. Do try these and please feel to ask if any other query :)

  10. Hey, Priyanka. I made these rotis today & they turned out lovely. Not as lovely as yours to look at but I'll practice. Also, I didnt have rice flour so I sprinkled MTR Uttapam mix. I dont think it altered the taste :-) Thanx for a keeper!

    Btw, you used the 50:50 ratio 'coz its healthier or is it the way roomalis are made?

    1. Pooja that's great u liked it. I used 50:50 ratio as its easy to roll and yes a bit healthy. Roomalis are made with pure maida mostly in restaurants.

  11. Tried making the rotis yesterday. The inside part did not look like the outside did when I separated the rotis after frying them. They looked like they were not fully cooked. Since we have to cook them on high heat only for a few seconds, is that enough time to cook the rotis on the inside too? Or did I do something wrong? Please let me know. Thanks.

    1. Joy as the rotis are very thin and cooked on high heat, hence cooked very fast, Though they look like raw from inside, but they are completely fine.
