rumali/ roomali roti is also known as handkerchief roti because it’s as light as a handkerchief or rumal/roomal and folded like one, this flatbread came to be known as rumali Roti. Usually on street side dhabas or in hotels, the rotis are flipped and stretched in air. Flipping and stretching rotis in air requires good mastery and skill.

Traditionally, this rumali roti is made using plain flour, milk and salt. We have made rumali roti with a combination of plain flour and whole wheat flour and then kneaded with milk. To make this recipe flavourful, the dough is kneaded using butter/oil and then rested for 1 or 2 hours to let it rise. Further, they are rolled and hand-tossed and are made so thin that they can tear with just two fingers.

rumali Roti is best enjoyed with creamy and thick gravies with a rich taste in it. For the same reason, it is paired with Punjabi food and Mughlai dishes.

Tips to make rumali roti: 1. Make sure to knead the dough well till soft. 2. If you cannot hand-toss to make these rotis, roll them evenly as thin as you can using a good amount of plain flour. 3. Make sure to serve these rotis immediately as they can become unchewable if eaten cold. 4. While making Rumali Roti at home, you can use a large wok to cook them easily and this will also give you the feel of restaurant-style roti.

I have been following your recipes and also has tried some. They turn out good but this is not the way to make traditional rumali rotis. They should be rolled in pair with little oil between them and would separate out in pair on heating.
