How to make Chili Garlic Roomali Roti | Recipe by Chef Saransh Goila
3 tablespoons of oil
75 g of garlic
4 Kashmiri Red Peppers
1 green pepper
2 tablespoons of salt
50 grams of butter, melted
500 grams of oil
10 g of salt
10 g of sugar
25 g of banana puree
Remaining pepper garlic paste
50 ml of milk
250 ml of water
1. Pour oil in a pot and fry the garlic cloves until caramelized.
2. Crush the cloves and add them to the blender. Also add soaked kashmiri red chillies, crushed green chillies, 2 tbsp salt and about 20ml water (you can use the rest of the water used to soak the chillies). Blend to make a smooth chili garlic paste.
3. Take the melted butter in a separate bowl and add about 2 teaspoons of chili paste to it.
4. To make roti dough, mix oil, salt, sugar, mashed banana, milk, water and remaining chili garlic paste. Knead well to make a soft dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
5. Turn the aluminum pan over the stove to heat. Pour salted water into a hot kadai
6. Roll the dough into very thin rotis. Try rolling them out and flipping them to get a roomier consistency.
7. Place the roti in a hot kadai and cook on high heat. Low heat makes roti kadak so be careful. Fold the roti as it starts to cook.
8. Place it on a plate and apply the chili garlic oil prepared earlier. Serve immediately.
