WHAT IS A ROTI?
Roti is a type of flatbread made from a simple dough of flour, water, and sometimes salt, which is kneaded into a smooth, elastic dough and then rolled out into thin circles. The roti is then cooked on a hot griddle or skillet until it puffs up and develops brown spots on both sides. Roti can be eaten on its own, used to scoop up curries and other dishes, or served as a wrap for various fillings. It is a staple food in many parts of the world and is often used in place of bread.
A keto roti is almost a version of keto flatbreads that is made using keto-friendly ingredients, which means that it is low in carbohydrates and high in fat.
CARBS IN ROTI
The amount of carbohydrates in roti can vary depending on the type of flour used and the size of the roti. Generally, traditional roti made with wheat flour can contain around 15-20 grams of total carbs per serving, which is typically one medium-sized roti.
However, this low carb roti recipe made with almond flour and coconut flour has just 3 grams net carbohydrates per roti, making it great for a keto diet.
We have used a mixture of low carb flours and used psyllium husk powder and ground chia seeds to bind the dough, in the absence of gluten.
- Almond flour - finely ground
- Coconut flour - Helps with the fiber content
- Ground flaxseed - we prefer golden ground flaxeed for a lighter colour of roti. Darker could be used.
- Psyllium Husk Powder - We grind ours in a coffee grinder to make the powder extra fine.
- Ground Chia Seed - Pulse chia seeds in a coffee grinder before use.
- Ghee - To make this recipe vegan, substitute the ghee with coconut oil or olive oil.
HOW TO MAKE KETO ROTI
This is a simple flatbread recipe made in a pan.
Add ingredients to bowl and mix into a dough.
Cut dough into pieces.
Roll the dough and cut circles with a saucepan lid.
Cook both sides in a pan.
Keto roti can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. It's best to separate the roti with parchment paper or plastic wrap to prevent them from sticking together. To reheat, simply warm them up in a microwave, oven, or on a pan before serving.
You can freeze the roti but place layers of parchment paper in between each one. Store them in a zip lock bag or airtight container and they will last up to 3 months in the freezer. Defrost in the fridge before use.
