Kunnal Thapa: arent these chapati's should fluff up?.... just asking, tutorial is great though..
PersonWConscience: I really want a roti maker form India but I know no one in India.
Eat East Indian: Awesome. Thanks for taking the time to give us the feedback.
CaptainJackSparrrow1: ha problem solved! turned out great with thinner dough :) thanks again, your videos are very helpful! :D
Eat East Indian: Ok great. Let me know how it turns out!
CaptainJackSparrrow1: I think thick dough may be the problem. I'll try making it a little thinner next time. Thanks for the tip! :)
Eat East Indian: :( Oh no. Their could be few reasons. Make sure you knead the dough well, tawa/griddle/pan should be hot when you add the roti on to it and let one side cook for 2-3 mins before flipping it over and the dough that you put on the tawa should be think not thick. Thinner ones puff up nicely.
CaptainJackSparrrow1: How come my rotis don't puff up? I don't know what I'm doing wrong :(
Eat East Indian: I'll have to try that Egyptian bread soon :)
Eat East Indian: Yeah, you are right :)
naseerahvj: You know roti's are like all other desi cooking, each family has their own slightly different method, it's kind of fun to see. Who makes dough fresh, who adds oil, or uses milk, who uses the flame or just the tava, how tick or thin they are, ect. :)
naseerahvj: I just make the dough once a day and then I can just roll out a roti whenever I need. This way they're always fresh. as long as I'm preparing a meal it's not too much extra. I also keep them in a hot pot so they stay warm and moist till it's time to eat. I've never had much success with reheating roti. Egyptian bread on the other hand I freeze and heat up as needed.
Eat East Indian: It's quite a task to make Rotis everyday. I usually make them in bulk and put them in fridge and heat them when we need to eat them.
naseerahvj: Just started making rotis daily again. You are right bread making is an art, it took me a couple days to get back to the quick good quality rotis I'm used to. Now I'm used to the rythem though I I mak yummi rotis for every meal :D
Eat East Indian: Glad you found them helpful :)
Raza Butt: Zindagiyaaan Bhain Ji; i'm going to try this and try to make myself rotis as a man.... my wife uses a gas range and when she was in Pakistan in Punjab if there was no fuel she would use fire and wood; this she places roti on the Frame and then it begins to bubble. Like a big balloon it's amazing
Dilip Mann: thanq for uploading, these videos, after watching these it seems soo easy now
Eat East Indian: @heomak wrap then in aluminium foil and when you reheat them (in microwave i am assuming), then just brush the roti with some water (as if you are applying butter or oil on it), it will be moist. If you are gonna heat it on tawa, then keep it a bit undercooked
Geneva york: My roti turned out awesome. Thank you for this video... I always watch your cooking by the way! hehehe... Love it. I think you should post a video on how to make Shahii paneer though, or just paneer in general. Thanks!
