Knead the mixture into a semi-soft dough, by adding a little water at a time.
Divide the dough into equal balls and roll out each one into a roti. Heat a griddle and roast the roti evenly on each side, applying a little oil. You can smear little butter if desired on each roti and serve hot with curry or dal of your choice.
Variation: Finely chopped spinach or fenugreek leaves can be added to the dough, to enhance taste and colour of the missi roti.
