  2. Heat a skillet and pre heat the broiler and have it waiting .
  3. Divide the dough into 3 to 4 equal portions . Take one portion and roll out into a disc about 1/8" thickness . Using a sharp knife make a few shallow gashes all over . Flip the disc. Create a pattern all over the circle using a pair of tongs or fingers .
  4. Oil the hot skillet lightly and place the disc on top . The design side should face up . Cook partially till the color of the dough changes slightly. By now light brown spots should be forming in the bottom. Smear a little oil on top of the roti and transfer to a cookie sheet with the design side up .
