They are available in different styles too; some are flat and thin, some have grill-like patterns onthem for forming lines on the dough while rolling, some have grooves to impart certain designs on the rolled dough, and so on. These are called textured rolling pins. Plain rolling pins are used to make rotis, parathas, and otherrecipes that call for plain surfaces of dough. In India, rolling pins are used in combination with rolling boards,but sometimes they may also be used on any plain, clean, flat surface.
