  • 3 cups flour sifted
  • 3 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. Melted unsalted butter or oil
  • Water
  • ½ tsp. Salt optional


  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Add 1 1/8 cups water all at once and mix into a soft dough.
  • Add more water if necessary. Knead dough (folding and sealing until smooth). Cover with a damp cloth and leave to rest for ½ hour.
  • Knead once and divide into 8 balls (loyah). Allow to relax for 15 minutes.
  • Then shape the balls into a circle 4" in diameter. Spread butter or oil on top the first circle and top it with another.
  • On a floured board or clean counter roll out the two roti together with a rolling pin.
  • Lightly grease a hot baking stone or tawah. Then place the rolled out dough on the tawah until it is cooked on one side.
  • Turn over and cook the other side. Remove and place on a clean towel. Insert knife between the two layers and separate to allow the steam out. Keep warm in a clean towel.
