Millet Roti - Bajra ki Roti

1 cup millet flour(bajra)
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon oil

Preparation:  To a pan on medium heat add water, salt, and oil.  Let the water come to boil, reduce the heat add the millet flour mix, when the water is absorbed turn the heat off and continue to knead with a spatula for 2 to 3 minutes, after which cover and let the dough to cool.
When the dough is cool to touch knead it a little bit more to make a smooth dough (it helps to grease your hands a little).  Next, start making the rotis

Cover the work surface with parchment paper apply a little bit of flour over the paper.  Take a little of the dough shape it into a round.  Place the dough on the parchment paper cover it with another sheet of parchment paper and gently roll over it to make a round roti.  I do it this way to make the rotis thinner and keep them from breaking while rolling.  Place the rolled roti on a griddle to cook.  Cook on both sides till you see bubbles.  Next transfer it to an open flame on the burner and finish the cooking when you see brown spots on both sides.

Makes 5 to 6 rotis.
