Tips :

For better results make rotti in iron kadai. Also keep in mind, kadai should be cooled before making next rotti. Vegetables should be finely grated else rotti will break. No big pieces should be there. If you want spicy, add more green chillies. As vegetables are there you may need more chillies. You can roast as per your requirement. If you want soft rotti remove as soon as it is done. Do not make the dough too thin. Rotti will not come properly.
