rumali rotirumali roti recipe | roomali roti recipe | easy roti recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically, roomali roti is a popular indian roti recipe coming direct from the vibrant and colorful punjabi cuisine. probably, the name of this roti has been derived from its texture and appearance. in other words, roomal literally means handkerchief in punjbai or even in hindi and urdu languages.

to be honest, i am not a big fan of roomali rotis, however, it is favorite roti recipe of my husband, hence i have to prepare it more frequently. i always admired and i still fascinated  with the way chef prepares it in most of the north indian hotels. probably, i do not like the thin texture of this roti which makes it more chewy and rubbery. in addition, these rotis are prepared from maida and hence i have a stronger reason to dislike it.

however, when served with tandoori curries, roomali rotis tastes heavenly. especially, when served with palak paneer, kadhai paneer or even with dum aloo recipe, it tastes amazing. contradictory, the preparation of these rotis can be overwhelming, especially the kneading part. i almost knead the dough for minimum of 15 -20 minutes to make it a smooth dough. as a result, the roomali rotis would turn soft and thin in texture.

furthermore, the important tip for roomali rotis is to serve immediately after preparing it. finally, do visit my other roti and paratha’s recipe on my website. specifically, aloo cheese paratha, garlic naan, raagi rotti, jowar bhakri, rice rotti recipe.

notes:

  • sprinkling salt water prevents roti from sticking and also give nice traditional taste.
  • do not over roast as they will turn hard.
  • knead the dough for minimum of 15 -20 minutes as a result to get smooth and soft dough.
  • alternatively, you can also prepare over chapathi tawa.
  • i have kneaded with milk, however you can use water. but milk makes roti more soft and flavourful.
  • i sometimes mix wheat flour and plain flour to make slightly healthy.

  1. Hi Mrs. Hebbar,

    Your cooking blog and videos are very interesting. I would like to try out this rumali roti recipe. We have an induction cook top, so can you suggest way of cooking the roti in this case.

    Thanks.

    regards,
    Prathibha

    • Thanks a lot 🙂 Its so motivating to receive feedbacks.. its difficult to cook in induction cook top as the heat will not be consistent when you turn over the tawa / cooker to flame.. however, you can use oven.
