Rumali Roti



Rumali roti is a thin, soft flatbread from the Indian subcontinent. It is made from a combination of wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and water. The dough is kneaded and rolled into a thin sheet, which is then cooked on a hot griddle. The roti is then folded into a handkerchief-like shape, giving it its name, which translates rumali roti to "handkerchief bread". Rumali roti is usually served with curries, gravies, and other dishes. It is also used to wrap kebabs and other snacks.
