Mix all the ingredients. No need to saute the leaves. Mix well until you can make a ball, add yogurt and warm water as needed to make firm dough. This dough should not stick to your hand, if it sticks, you added more water; If it crumbles up, it needs more liquid.

Knead for 5 minutes to form soft, pliable ball. Make few lime size balls and knead thin into round shapes. Roti in this photo are made with bacchali leaves. I prefer this leaf, because it is slimy and a good binder.

Rolling out Chapatis:

Knead and rollout the dough into a cylindrical long roll on a wood board. Take small lime sized portions and shape them into balls.

Sprinkle some flour on clean board. Using a rolling pin, press/roll out the dough into a big thin round. To get layers, fold the rolled out round twice, to get a triangle shape then roll into a big, thin triangle.

Cooking Rotis:

Heat a cast-iron griddle, when it is hot, place the roti and fry it on each side until golden.

You can have this by itself. This goes well with any curry like No oil egg plant soy curry, creamy greens, eggplant and unripe mango medley, broccoli and pea saute.
