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:
- Kneading the dough.
- Letting the dough rest.
- Cooking the roti.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Dough resting time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 13 minutes
- 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
- Add the first four ingredients to a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Add the oil or ghee and rub it into the flour.
- 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.
- Rub the dough with a little oil so as not to form a skin. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
- Heat a cast iron griddle or pan on medium heat.
- Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Cover the rest of the dough as you work with one piece at a time.
- Lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin.
- 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.
- 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)
- Repeat from step 8 until all the roti is made.
- Serve as is with butter, jam, a spread of your choice or sauteed vegetables or a curry.
