    2 c. whole wheat flour
    1/2 tsp. dry yeast
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tbsp. oil
    1 c. water

    Tandoori Roti

    2 cups Indian whole wheat flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    About 3/4 cup warm water (enough for a kneadable dough)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Knead the dough, cover, and set aside for at least 1/2 hour (ideally 1-2 hours).

    Divide the dough in 10-12 equal pieces. Roll out into 5-6-inch rounds, paint lightly with ghee,
    then prepare by one of the two following methods:

    Make a slit from one edge of the round to the center.
    Wrap one cut edge around the other to make a cone-shape.
    Flatten the cone back into a disk, then roll out with the rolling pin to the
    thickness of carboard, about 5-6-inches wide.
    Roll up the disk into a "jelly-roll." Now curl the roll into a spiral, like a cinnamon bun.
    Seal the outside end by pressing with your fingers, then flatten and roll out
    with a rolling pin to the thickness of cardboard, about 5-6- inches wide.
    Place the roti on a cake rack, and set on top of the oven rack in your oven;
    bake until lightly browned. Paint one side of the roti with ghee to keep it from
    becoming brittle.

    You can also cook these in a skillet just like chapati. Remember to butter
    them when browned.

    Makes 10 - 12 servings; Serving size 1 slice
