  • Combine well all the ingredients and knead thoroughly until the dough is soft and smooth.
  • Leave out to rise for an hour.
  • Make balls of equal size. Roll out each ball gently and evenly (do not press down hard on the ball of dough, you need to use a light hand) to a thickness of a little more than a quarter inch.
  • Place them on a lightly floured surface and cover them with brown paper or light towel so that not too much air can get in.
  • Leave them to stand for about 2 hours until they rise again.
  • Heat up a heavy pan, and place one roll in the center. Put the heat on very low and don't move the pita.
  • When you notice it starting to rise, gently press down with a flat roti spoon so that the air building up inside it gets distributed evenly.
  • Then gently lift and flip it to the other side. Dip the tip of your spoon in oil and gently wipe over the pita and under it.
  • Once done on both sides, remove and place on a plate and proceed with the next one.
  • Serve with chutneys or curries.
