3. Now we have to start kneading it, you can add some dry flour to knead as your dough will be easily really sticky, so dust some dry flour and knead it, Knead it for 10 to 12 minutes knead it very nicely,

4. This dough should become stretchy and gluten should start forming in it, and due to that your rumali roti will not tear apart when you try to roll it very thin,




5. So knead it properly for 10 to 12 minutes until the stickNess of the dough is gone and your dough become soft and stretchy,

6. After 10 to 12 minutes you can see that you have knead the dough very well and it has become soft and smooth,



7. Now make a big dough ball out of it, now apply some oil in a bowl and place the dough ball in it, and apply some more oil on top to prevent the surface of the dough from drying out, and then we will cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 2 to 4 hours,

8. Once you have knead the dough  then you have to cover it and let it rest for a minimum of 2 hours, it’s okay if you rest it for 4 hours instead of 2 hours but a minimum of 2 hours is required,

9. As we have to let the dough relax once the dough is relaxed you can roll it out,

#3 Pro Tips

whenever you make a roti from refined flour you may have seen that while rolling it it usually contracts back, because it has not been rested,

If you have rested the dough well then it will not contract and you can make thin roti easily, So resting this dough is very important so rest this dough for 2 hours,



10. After resting the dough we have to cook it for cooking the roti we are going to use the skillet which I have already told you,

11. Here I am using a cast iron skillet here which is quite big in sized so take whichever big size skillet that you have,

Pro Tips

12. Remember one thing don’t take the non stick skillet try taking the cast iron is skillet,and then you have to heat the skillet I will tell you that process, you can also use the skillet which is used to make dosa as it is quite big, so that you can make a nice big rumali roti,
