    I make decent (Ok ok) rotis. Roti experts please give me some tips to make excellent rotis which will stay soft for a long time.

    Also is there a way to make rotis and freeze them uncooked. Then take out and cook them on demand?

    Try adding some yogurt or warm milk when you knead the dough. Also, make sure your tava is very hot when you put the rotis on it. A good test is sprinkle some drops of water on the tava, and if they immediately sizzle and evaporate, its hot enough. I'm not sure how to freeze them though.
    Good luck!

    Roti is a flat whole wheat bread, a staple food of North India. Roti, Chapati or Phulka are same except for size. While making a Roti you should know that the tava should be hot, I like to add salt in the flour, I like to add a minimum of ΒΌ teaspoon of salt for every two cups of flour.
