Roti: A Quintessential Part of Any Meal

Rotis are a staple food in many cultures, and for a good reason. Having roti in your daily diet can help in more ways than you can imagine. It can help in losing weight as it keeps us feeling full for longer. We also get numerous health benefits as it is packed with whole grains and nutrients. Whole grains reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. They are also rich in fiber which aids in digestion and helps prevent constipation and spikes in blood sugar levels. With benefits like these, we must learn the tips and recipes to make healthy and soft rotis.

Tips for Making Fluffy and Soft Rotis

There's nothing like a freshly made roti hot off the stove! However, cooking rotis is a far more challenging task than preparing the dough, especially if you are a beginner or have a busy schedule. So, for those who can’t make them fluffy and soft, we’ve listed a few vital tips to cook rotis just the way you like them.

  1. Start with Room Temperature Water: This is key! The dough will be tough to knead if your water is too cold. If it's too hot, it will make the rotis hard and crusty. So, aim for somewhere in the middle, and your rotis will be nice and soft.
  2. Use fresh flour - The quality of the flour you use plays a significant role in the texture and taste of your rotis. Always use fresh flour, and store it in an airtight container to maintain its freshness.
  3. Knead the dough well - Properly kneading is key to making soft and fluffy rotis. Knead the dough for at least 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Let the dough rest - After kneading it, rest for 10-15 minutes. This helps the gluten in the dough to relax, making it easier to roll out the rotis.
  5. Use Atta Flour to roll rotis: Atta flour has a higher gluten content than regular wheat flour, which gives the rotis a nice elasticity and prevents them from becoming too dense.

Roti Recipes You Must Try A Balanced Meal

When it comes to roti recipes, there are endless possibilities. They are not only delicious but also incredibly versatile, and we can make them in dozens of different ways. No matter the roti recipe, we require only a few essential ingredients and customize it to suit our taste buds. From whole wheat rotis to gluten-free rotis, there is a recipe for everyone. Here are some of our favorite roti recipes everyone should try.

Everyone’s Favorite: Wholesome Wheat Roti

For this wheat roti recipe, we need approximately one bowl of whole-wheat or atta flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup of water. For a healthier alternative, we can try making multigrain rotis that are high in fiber and protein and are better for digestive health. We just need to add oats, barley flakes, rye flakes, millet flour, and olive oil into the flour before kneading the dough.


Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl.

  1. Add the olive oil or ghee and mix until well combined.
  2. Slowly add the water, little by little, until the dough comes together.
  3. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes and then divide the dough into equal portions.
  4. Start Rotimatic and select the wheat flour option.
  5. Once the Rotimatic is ready, place a small portion of the dough into the machine and let it make the rotis.

Super Healthy & Delicious: Jowar Roti

Jowar or Sorghum flour is one of the best atta for weight loss and a wholesome alternative for wheat roti. Jowar roti has high nutritional content, including protein, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, phosphorus, B vitamins and C. Apart from these, jowar roti is gluten-free and keto-friendly, so it’s highly beneficial for diabetics. They’re also incredibly easy to make and require only jowar flour, whole wheat flour, salt and water.


  1. Combine the jowar or bajra flour, whole wheat flour, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Add water gradually and knead the dough until it is smooth and pliable.
  3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and rest for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Start Rotimatic and select the jowar flour option.
  5. Once the Rotimatic is ready, place a small portion of the dough into the machine and let it make the rotis.

A Nutritious Delight: Bajra Roti

Bajra rotis are also excellent options for a healthy and nutritious tiffin meal. It doesn’t just come with multiple health benefits but also is great in the taste department. It’s incredibly popular in Gujarat and Rajasthan, but now people all over India are adopting this superfood into their diet due to its health benefits. To make them, you only need to replace your normal flour with Bajra flour.


  1. Take one cup of warm water in a pan and add salt.
  2. Add 1 cup of Bajra flour to the water for a glutenous texture and the easiest workable dough.
  3. After a minute, mix the dough well and set it aside so it cools down.
  4. Take it out on a flat surface and knead the dough into a soft pliable dough.
  5. Roll it into a round shape and place a small portion of the dough into Rotimatic and let it make the rotis.
