It has been a while since I have posted a video. I am getting over a bad cold that I’ve had for few days. My husband (my video grapher and person responsible putting every thing together) is quite busy this week. He will be available this weekend, so I will make sure to take a video this weekend.I will suggest to my friends, students in my class and every body else how to take care of a cold by using home remedies. But when I get a cold, I become very careless and don’t follow my own remedies, which result in a slow recovery.
Many viewers have questions about making dough, such as how much rolling or kneading to do and why the Roties they make are not soft. Soon I will be preparing a video on Roti again. This video will emphasize making dough, rolling, and provide tips on how to make sure the Roti comes out soft.
For making dough or batter, water measurements given in the recipes must be used as guidelines only. I think it is impossible to give the exact measurement of water because there are many factors that change how much water is needed. The brand of flour you are using, how the flour was milled, and how old the flour is are just some of the things that can change the amount of water you need. Just remember it is very important to get the right softness of dough and the dough must be kneaded enough. That helps to roll the roti or paratha and after cooking stays soft
My granddaughter loves to help me in kitchen she loves to roll the roti; she does a great job. The first time I was just amazed to see how good she rolled, but you know why she did so good — she was not worrying about making a mistake. I am telling you this to maybe help in your own cooking; just try and maybe they won’t be perfectly round but who cares. When my granddaughter rolls roti, we consider her rotis pieces of art and of course her Dadu (grandfather) just loves eating them. Roties rolled by her just taste so much better.
