Purple Roti



  • Blend purple cabbage and avocado, add this mixture to wheat flour, add oil.
  • Mix well until you can make a ball, add 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 golfball size balls.
  • Dip the ball into flour to coat, sprinkle some flour on clean board and roll it out into a thin disc using a rolling pin. To get layers, fold the rolled out round twice, to get a triangle shape then roll into a big, thin triangle. Shake off excess flour on roti and fry it on hot skillet.
  • Flip it with tongs once you see bubbles on the surface. Cook it for 10-15 seconds. Some like to cook roti on open flame at this stage when flipped, for 5 seconds.
  • Place rotis in insulated container as you make.
