Earlier this month, I released Roti: 40 Classic Indian Breads & Sides.
The book includes many classic recipes from all over India, heavily focused on the methods of making the dough, rolling, and cooking various basic forms of roti's and breads and also a large section on sides and suitable quick pairings. If you have not ordered the book yet, follow this link:
TO ORDER ROTI
Roti making is perhaps the most misunderstood Indian dish. Although it appears intimidating, once you get the hang of it, it isn't. Some days it may be stressful, but it is actually a meditative process that involves an appreciation of the flour, the binding, the rolling and cooking. And this is why I wrote my book.
I recently spoke with Epoch Times about how Roti-making can be as simple or intricate as you want to make it. I have funny memories of what happened when my mother used to mill the flour at home in India back in India when I was a child, and even though I hated the process, while writing Roti, I discovered the wisdom in her work - and ended up with purchasing my own counter-top flour mill!
Early in the process of writing my book, I purchased a grain mill and eventually got on the company's mailing list. For Mothers' Day, they sent me a flyer with codes for discounts, for my readers - if they want to purchase their own mills. I used mine while I was experimenting with the flours, and enjoyed having the mill within easy reach. I do have to purchase special whole wheat berries for making atta. Read about the differences in flour, and binding methods in Roti as well.
These codes expire on May 17, 2019.
