- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 16 ozs water

- 1 cup vegetable oil
- In a large bowl, add flour, salt, sugar. Pour in the 1 tbsp oil and water and mix to a soft, sticky dough.
- Pour the remaining tbsp oil over the dough and form into a ball, if necessary use an additional tbsp to minimise the stickiness.
- Form the dough into ten even size balls and place on a floured baking sheet to avoid them sticking. You made need to flour your hands to help with stickiness.
- Lightly grease a large piece of cling film and cover the baking sheet with the dough balls. Set aside in a cool dark place for an hour. Perhaps an oven but make sure it is turned off.
- Flatten the balls one by one and spread with one teaspoon ghee, using the back of a spoon.
- Sprinkle flour over the flatten dough. Make a clean cut from the edge of the dough to the centre and roll into a cone shape.

- Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface and form into a large thin circle.
- Place a 24" crepe pan or a large non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat and brush with the vegetable oil and ghee mixture using a pastry brush.
- After 2-3 mins, gently lift the rolled out dough onto the prepared pan and spread out evenly.
- Brush the top of the dough lightly with some of the vegetable oil mixtures.
- After two mins turn the roti and allow to cook on the underside. Brush the top again lightly with oil mixture.
- After one to two minutes, remove the cooked roti and leave whole or use two wooden spoons to beat and tear.
- Wrap the dough in a clean damp tea towel to cover and keep moist.
