Spelt flour rotis (Roshi) or Flatbreads

These rotis are quick and easy to make. Enjoy with my beetroot curry or any curry you like.



  • 1 cup spelt flour plus extra flour for dusting
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup hot water  plus 1 teaspoon extra if needed


  • In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt and oil with a spoon.
  • Add the hot water and mix with the spoon.
  • Then knead with your hands for about 3-4 minutes and if it seems a bit dry add the remaining 1 teaspoon water and knead again until smooth.
  • Preheat a non stick fry pan or tawa (a flat cast iron pan)
  • Divide the dough into 7 equal sized smooth balls.
  • Flatten one  ball slightly and dip in the extra flour, then using a rolling pin and wooden board, roll out as thinly as you can or about 13cm -15cm round.
  • Make sure the pan is hot, place the roti on the pan and cook until bubbles begin to appear. 
  • Turn over and cook until the other side has brown spots.
  • Place the roti on a plate lined with paper towel or kitchen paper.
  • Finish the rest of the rotis and adjust the heat of the pan slightly if needed 
  • Cover all the rotis with another piece of kitchen paper and then cover the whole plate with cling film or aluminium foil to keep them soft.
  • Serve with my beetroot curry or any curry you like.
