Recipe yields - 1 Tortilla/Roti/Thepla


Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 12 - 15 mins


Ingredients

  • Almond flour - 2 tbsp

  • Mint leaves - handful, chopped

  • Psyllium husk - 1 tsp

  • Salt - to taste

  • Tumeric - 1/8 tsp

  • Chilli powder - 1/8 tsp

  • Water as needed

Method of Preparation

  1. In a bowl, add all the ingredients, except water and combine.

  2. Slowly add water and knead to form a dough. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  3. On a piece of parchment paper, flatten the dough with your fingers to form tortilla's/roti

  4. To cook the roti, heat up your cast iron (or non-stick) pan over medium-high heat. Flip over the roti on the hot pan and peel off the parchment paper. Cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side, flip over using a spatula and cook for 1-2 more minutes on the other side.

  5. Serve hot

Pro Tips:

  • The dough should be moist.

  • It is important to rest the dough in the refrigerator as this enables the almond flour to bind with the psyllium husk.

  • Flatten the dough with wet hands to ensure it spreads evenly and no cracks form on the dough.
