In this post, I provide instructions on how to make sada roti. I got this recipe from my dearest friend of many years. I am so happy to be able to include her in my projects. She is a great cook! Sadha Roti is very simple and is mostly made for breakfast.
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tablespoons of butter
Water to knead
Mix flour, baking powder and salt Add enough water to make to smooth dough, knead well. Cover with damp towel and allow the dough to rest for 1/2 hour.
Divide dough into two and shape them into balls. Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/2″ thick and about 8″ round
Cook on tawa turning on either side until light brown in colour or until swells. Roll edges on tawa. I don’t have a tawa so I used my very wide cast iron frying pan that did the trick very well.
Sadha roti can be served, with cheese, especially if it is still hot. The day that I prepared for this page, I boiled about 6 eggs, roasted one sliced onion and one sliced sweet pepper. I mixed everything together and added some salt and pepper.
It can also be served with Avacado Choka, or Saltfish Buljol.
What is a Tawa? Tawa, also known as a baking stone or platine is a thick, flat, round, plate like iron which is part of the Indian tradition and is used to make sada roti, dalphouri, roast bake and even pancakes. In recent times it is placed on top of a lit stove burner but back in the day it was used on top of a ‘fire side’ made of dirt and clay.
