Like my father, I’ve found that my hand isn’t “set for” making roti. I’ve tried many recipes over the years and have better success with some than others. The best recipe I’ve found comes from my dear friend
This bread’s unusual name, meaning “burst up shirt,” comes from the way its soft cottony folds are shredded after cooking. Simply make Paratha Roti and when removing the bread from the tawa or griddle, use a wooden spoon and lightly beat the hot cooked bread on a flat surface until it shreds. Alternatively, gently tear into 3-inch-wide strips. Serve hot with the curry of your choice.
