Last July, I posted a recipe for making Rotlas and got several comments telling me how healthy millet was but lots of people aren’t eating it now. I also got comments telling me that it was quite difficult to make them. Most Gujarati girls are used to making these regularly. I am not an expert on making these but have got better as I make them often. Now, I have found an easier way of making them. I hope my step by step pictures will encourage more of you to try out Rotlas or Millet Flat Bread. Please follow my recipe here for making the dough.
Once you have made the dough, keep it covered with a dish cloth as the dough tends to dry quickly.
1. Take a thick plastic bag like a Zip lock bag and cut its sides.
2. Place the plastic bag on your work top.
3. Place a small ball of millet dough and place it between the bag. The dough has to be between two sheets of plastic.
8. Gently place Rotlas or Millet Flat Bread on a hot tava or frying pan or griddle. Make sure you don’t trap any air when placing it to cook on the tava. The tava should be on medium heat. Only turn it on the second side once it comes off the tava. If it doesn’t come off the tava, it’s not ready.
