Vegan Roti Recipe


Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Cuisine Indian
Servings 10


  • Mixing bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Skillet
  • Spatula


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 to 1 cup water adjust as needed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oil optional


  • In a mixing bowl, add the whole wheat flour and salt. Mix well.
  • Gradually add water to the flour while kneading to form a soft and smooth dough. The amount of water needed may vary, so add it gradually until the dough comes together.
  • Knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it becomes elastic and pliable. If desired, add a teaspoon of oil to the dough and knead for another minute to make it softer.
  • Divide the dough into 8-10 equal-sized portions. Roll each portion into a ball between your palms.
  • Dust a flat surface and a rolling pin with flour. Take one dough ball and flatten it slightly with your hand. Roll it out into a thin, round disc, approximately 6-8 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a skillet or tawa over medium heat. Place the rolled roti onto the hot skillet.
  • Cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute until bubbles start to appear on the surface. Flip the roti and cook the other side for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Flip the roti again and press it gently with a clean kitchen towel or a flat spatula. This will help the roti to puff up.
  • Once the roti puffs up and gets lightly browned on both sides, remove it from the skillet and place it on a plate. Optionally, you can brush it with a little vegan butter or oil for added flavor.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls until all the rotis are cooked.
