Khamiri Roti

Sourdough Roti

Inspired by Jim Lahey's Bread. Adaptation to Indian Roti.

Mix the Atta, oil(optional), salt and water just to form the ball,  no kneading necessary.

Put it in a glad like plastic or glass container covered but not airtight in the oven with just the light turned on for a little warmth overnight.

Next day lightly knead the dough with flour, it would be a little stickier than usual but after you knead, it would be more manageable.

Make the Rotis as usual.
