Ingredient:
1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp oil or butter
1/2 cup warm water
salt to taste

Method:

1. In bowl, add all ingredient, mix well and knead to pliable dough. It has to be soft enough to roll out but not too soft to make it difficult to roll. Keep in mind that firm dough makes harder roties.
2. Wrap dough in a plastic film or wet kitchen towel and keep aside for at least 1 hour.

3. Make small balls, take one roll in desired shape on floured surface. Cover remaining balls with moist cloth or kitchen towel.

Using Oven:

2. Place rolled roti on pizza stone or upside down baking stone. 
Once the top looks cooked, very lightly golden with a few dark brown-black spots and patches after 1 minute or so, turn them over and cook the other side.

3. Take roti out of the oven and brush with clarified butter(or ghee). 

4. Roll and place remaining roties and broil it.

5. Serve hot with any veg/non-veg gravy or curry dish.

Using traditional gas burner cook-top:

1. Heat a non stick pan on high heat, Once pan is hot, place roti and roast on pan each side until fully cooked and golden brown in color. Roti will fluff up.

Using electric range cook-top:
