Curry Roti Bread Recipe


1 cup warm water

2 ½ cups wheat flour or all-purpose

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 tablespoon ground red pepper (optional)

1 teaspoon ground curry

Pinch of salt


Mix flour and salt 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 light brown and flip in order to lightly brown the other side. Remove from heat and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Add more oil to the pan as needed.
