Put 1tsp oil around the rotti, close the lid and cook on medium flame.

Turn the kadai on all sides to help cook well. Nice aroma comes when methi rotti is cooked.

When rotti is done. Switch off the flame. Take a spoon, slowly remove rotti from the kadai.

Serve hot with coconut chutney and ghee.

Repeat the procedure with remaining dough. But always cool the kadai and prepare the next one otherwise you cannot spread rotti.

 

Tips :

For better results make rotti in iron kadai.

Also keep in mind kadai should be cooled before making next rotti.

You can roast as per your requirement. If you do not want roasted rotti remove as soon as it is done.

Do not make the dough too thin. Rotti will not come properly.
