My haul from Glasgow at the weekend when I was home. I have all these spices already, apart from the methi and coriander leaves. Very hard to get in any supermarkets in NI. And the flour only available in 10k bags in all the supermarkets I’ve been in. I’m making Chettinad Chicken tonight and I’m going to try making my own Roti. Can anyone tell me if I can make the dough ahead of time?

Chettinad is great, how was yours? I make my rotis when the madness has finished, otherwise ahead of time is fine, just not ‘too far ahead’!!

@Arthur vdH that’s a good idea. I’m the only one that eats roti’s so only did 2 last night. I have tub of dough in fridge, I’ll try that out tonight. They were really tasty. I am struggling to get that round shape. They looked more like naan bread but a lot thinner lol

I also sometimes freeze some @deborahhill1422 . Roll them out, cover with a bit of flour, separate with cling wrap and pop them in a freezer bag. They thaw out really quickly because they’re thin.

@deborahhill1422 : hi yes you can make dough ahead. i.make usually a batch of naan dough, put it in ziplock bag and fridge it.

if you need to hind some spices, hari sells some too. the kasoori methi.powder comes in a huge box( 2 kg) i think, it lasts a good while.

The dough can be made ahead of time I usually make enough for 2 days worth. Pop into a plastic tub and put it in the fridge. Chakki atta is a bit drier then normal atta but tastes lovely. Can’t wait to see pictures @deborahhill1422
