Wraps and rolls are loads of fun! They make ideal on-the-go meals, and are loaded with surprises too.

You can stuff them with all your favourite things, and also cheer up your loved ones by packing their rolls with all the stuff they love.

Normally, store-bought rolls are made with a combination of maida and whole wheat flour, which is kind of unhealthy even if the stuffing is a healthy salad. So, go for this healthier option instead.

This recipe of Roti for Wraps and Rolls is made entirely with whole wheat flour, which gives it a nice rustic taste and healthy twist too.

It can be used to make any wrap or roll. So, you can experiment with different combos stuffed inside.

You can even make variants of this roti by adding spinach, carrot or beet puree for a colourful and nutritious boost to your wraps and rolls.

The size of the rotis is a little hard to master, but definitely worth the effort.

How to make Rotis for Wraps and Rolls

  1. Take a deep bowl and add the flour to it to make roti for wraps and rolls. We have used only whole wheat flour, but you can use half and half maida and whole wheat. Making it using only whole wheat flour makes the roll healthier to eat. See detailed benefits of whole wheat flour and why it's good for you.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of oil to this. This makes the roti soft.
  3. Also add the salt to taste. Increase or decrease the quantity of salt to your liking.
  4. Slowly add water little by little.
  5. Mix it well with your hands. Gather the flour from all sides and if its too floury, you will need more water.
  6. Knead it into a soft dough for at least 2 minutes. We have used approximately 1/3 cup of water. 
  7. Apply a little oil on the surface of the dough so that it doesn’t become dry. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth. You can also use cling film or a plate to cover.
  8. Keep aside for 15 minutes. Giving rest to the dough improves the texture and the rotis will be softer and fluffier.
  9. Divide into 4 equal portions.
  10. Take a portion of the dough between your palm, flatten it and place it on a rolling board.
  11. Sprinke a little flour on your rolling board and roll out each portion of the dough into a thin circle of 225mm. (9”) diameter.
  12. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) on a high flame  and place the roti on it. Reduce the flame when it becomes hot enough. You can even check by drizzling a few drops of water on the tava, if it sizzles you are ready to make your roti for wraps and rolls
  13. Cook till small blisters appear on the surface. Turn over the roti and cook for a few more seconds on a medium flame till light brown spots appear. Do not cook this on a slow flame, or else the roti will become too hard.
  14. Cook the roti using 1/4 tsp of oil on each side.
  15. Take the roti (roti for wraps and rolls) off the heat and repeat with the remaining dough portions to make 3 more rotis.
  16. Serve immediately or wrap the rotis (roti for wraps and rolls) in a clean soft cloth and keep them in a hot case. Use this recipe to make Hara Bhara Tikki Roll.
