Pinch small proportions of the dough and make balls and keep aside. Take a flat tawa / chapathi tawa and put one ball of the dough and spread thinly on the tawa and fry just like chapathis (on both sides) on low flame. The color should be light golden to deep brown. Fry to your preference. Plate the ready rotti on a plate, let it cool and then place them in an air tight box.
