furthermore, i would like to highlight some more tips, suggestions, and variations to make a perfect roti & chapati. firstly kneading is the key step for getting a soft and puffy indian flatbread recipe. do not over knead it and also do not press it hard with a lot of pressure. your kneading should be soft and gentle. secondly, i have not added any extra oil while mixing the dough. i know some prefer to add oil while mixing and preparing the dough. it should be equally fine to add if you prefer to have it. lastly, to get a puffy roti and phulka, do not rest the rolled round disc. i recommend to roll it and fry the disc immediately or simultaneously. also, do not overheat the frying pan as the disc may stick to the pan.
