Pumpkin Roti Flatbread

Pumpkin Roti Flatbread

Roti is a flatbread many South African Indians consider a staple food.

Roti is similar to a Spanish flour tortilla and eaten in a similar way. Recipes for appetizers, snacks, entrees, and even desserts all start with a roti. Making homemade roti is the perfect time to use your infused oils and add that extra extraness to your meal.

Pumpkin Roti Flatbread

Ingredients
1 cup canned mash pumpkin
2 ½ cups Durum wheat flour (you can use regular wheat flour or all-purpose the texture will be different)
Pinch of salt

Directions
Mix flour and salt then add pumpkin to make dough by hand. Add water or more flour depending on the dough’s consistency. 

The dough should feel slightly sticky to the touch but not stick to your hands. 

Knead the dough and roll it into small balls of equal sizes. On medium heat add one tablespoon of oil to a large frying pan or griddle. 

Roll out the dough into round shapes using rolling pin. Place rolled dough into the hot pan. Cook until lightly brown and flip to lightly brown the other side. 

Remove from heat and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Add more oil to the pan as needed.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
