Here at Caribbean Hut, we are passionate about our food, and we want to make sure that everything on our menu is delectable every time. One of our most popular options is our roti, and over the years, we have developed a number of techniques to get it just right. In this article, we’ll go over more about what roti is, and share a few of our secrets for making it great.
What is Roti?
Starting with the basics, roti is a kind of flatbread made of whole-meal wheat flour. It is similar to pita bread, but it originates in Indian cuisine rather than in Mediterranean traditions.
Secrets of Great Roti
- Patience – The first key to making great roti is to have patience. The dough needs to be kneaded thoroughly and given enough time to rest in order to achieve the lightness and texture that makes roti so delicious. Our team has mastered the timing of kneading and resting, and we never rush either of these essential steps, so our roti always comes out beautifully.
- Correct Portions – Another secret behind great roti is correctly portioning the dough. Before cooking the roti, we make sure to portion out the dough into equal amounts and form each piece into a perfectly round ball. We also take care not to make each flattened round too thin, as this will lead to the finished bread being dry.
- Prevent Stickiness – A third key to making great roti is to lightly grease the rolling surface and pin to prevent the dough from sticking. This saves a great deal of frustration and helps our team to turn out beautiful roti every time.
