Sada Roti is a type of Indian-influenced flat bread. Of all the West Indian roti(s), it is the easiest to make as it only involves 3 easy steps:

  1. Kneading the dough.
  2. Letting the dough rest.
  3. Cooking the roti.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Dough resting time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 13 minutes

Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil or ghee
  • Lukewarm water

Preparation:

  1. Add the first four ingredients to a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add the oil or ghee and rub it into the flour.
  3. Add enough water to knead to make a dough. Once the dough comes together, knead it for 2 - 3 minutes to a soft pliable dough.
  4. Rub the dough with a little oil so as not to form a skin. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat a cast iron griddle or pan on medium heat.
  6. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Cover the rest of the dough as you work with one piece at a time.
  7. Lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin.
  8. Form one piece of the dough into a ball, then flatten to a disk and roll into a 5 inch circle of about 1/4 inch thickness.
  9. Transfer rolled dough to tawah or pan, lower heat to medium-low. Let cook on one side until the roti puffs up. Flip the roti and cook the other side for a minute or two. Remove roti from tawah and wrap loosely in kitchen towel (flour-bag type of fabric)
  10. Repeat from step 8 until all the roti is made.
  11. Serve as is with butter, jam, a spread of your choice or sauteed vegetables or a curry.
