1 1/2 - 1 3/4water approx * for kneading a stiff dough.
Sift the flour in a big bowl
Add salt to the flour and mix well.
Add melted ghee .
Rub the flour between your fingers so that entire flour is well coated with ghee .
Add water little at a time to knead a stiff dough..After kneading it smooth just coat it with some ghee and let it rest covered for 15 -20 mins atleast .
Meantime pre heat the oven at 180 degree C or 350 degree F
Divide dough in 3-4 equal balls .
Roll it without dusting with dry flour approx 1/2 " thick round . Trust me it wont stick on the rolling pin .
Now make slashes with the knife on one side .
Flip the roti and make the floral design with the tweezer.
Place it on a warm non stick skillet, slashed side down only . (follow step by step pictorial above). The idea is to only semi cook slashed side only on the tawa/ skillet.
Once it's lightly cooked from one side transfer it to a baking sheet lined with foil and greased lightly.
Place the baking tray/sheet on the middle rack of the oven .. Bake for 25 -30 mins .
No microwave mode please - Only convection .
After baking , transfer the baking tray carefully on top most rack and broil on high for 4-5 mins or until you see beautiful brown color on top- watch closely after 2 mins broiling mark to avoid burning . If you don't have a broiling option simply turn on only upper heating element.
Take it out of the oven once done .
Drizzle some ghee on the top .
Enjoy with Dal, subzi or choorma :)
Traditionally ghee is used , you can use oil if you prefer so. Add water little by little to make a stiff dough - tad stiffer than poori dough. Always use oven safe gloves while handling baked goods.
