We have added Roti Sourdough to our list of favorite recipes and you will want to as well when you see how easy it is to make. You can find more information about sourdough by going to Recipes For Discarded Sourdough Starter.

It only seems right to add another fermented food to our list of recipes that we have been filling our recipe binder with over the last couple of years.

We are using Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached All-Purpose Flour for this recipe since it comes out so light and fluffy and the taste is perfection.

It is important to me to use a flour that I am already used to working with and that I also know what the consistency is going to be for any number of items that I make.

  • tbsp curry powder
  • tsp salt

In a large bowl, add the ap flour, salt, curry powder
Then add discard, oil and water and mix until combined
Lightly flour your work surface and turn the dough out on the work surface
Begin combining the dough by gently needing
Form into a ball
Divide into 8 equal parts
Form each piece into a round ball and flatten with the palm of your hand
Take each ball of dough and begin to roll it out with your rolling pin
Using a basting brush or paper towel add melted butter
Roll the roti onto itself
Stand roti up
Roll out roti again
Then roll as if to make it a snail shape
Heat a medium skillet on medium high heat
Add one roti to the pan and begin cooking. You should see bubbles forming
Press the bubbles down lightly
Flip and repeat heating the second side
Once cooked put on a plate and cover with a towel
Repeat for the remaining 7 roti
Serve warm or allow to cool for later use
  • If the roti dough is too sticky, you can add a little oil to your hands. Try not to add too much flour as it will make the roti too tough.
  • If you want to roll out all the roti first, you can. You can set them aside on the counter or drape them over the side of your mixing bowl. Do not stack them uncooked on top of each other uncooked.

    Do you flatten it again after making the snail shape, and before frying it?

      Hi Trudy!

      Thank you for your question. I roll it up to help make layers, keep the butter from getting out and keep the pan clean.

    I don’t understand about sourdough discard. What does that mean?
