Kadak Rumali Roti | Simple and easy Kadak Rumali Roti at home | Crispy Rumali Roti - A good accompaniment for Tea or just a snack for chat time or movie time, here is a detailed recipe of the simple snack Crispy Rumali Roti with images and a video.

This “Crispy Rumali Roti” is crisp, spicy and tastes like Mexican Nachos eaten with Salsa sauce. It is also similar to the Gujarati Khakra. Whatever the comparison, it tastes really good.

I had tasted the “Crispy Rumali Roti” in a Hyderabad restaurant some three years ago. I found it fascinating but really liked it when I tasted it after some time at a hotel buffet. Then I saw some social media posts which explained that the Crispy Rumali Roti can be made in many flavours and thought 'Wow'!.

Crispy Rumali Rotis are popular with Nepalis and a friend told me that they are available as street food in Nepal. It is possible that popular recipe percolated down to us.

I have given a Mexican touch to the Roti I am making with Salsa. You can add any other flavours. But if you follow the tips in roasting, you will get the best “Crispy Rumali Roti”.

  1. I have mixed some Wheat and Maida Flours. If you like you can use just Wheat Flour of Maida. Or use some other Flour such as Maize or Jowar.

  2. Add just a little Water to the Flour and make a stiff dough. The more you knead the dough, the stretchy it is. Then the Roti won't break even if you roll it very thin.

  3. Cut the Rotis on a sharp-edged plate so that all the Rotis will have the same shape and size.

  4. Rotis should be left open in the air so that they become even more crisp.

Tips to roast Rotis:

  1. The Rotis are roasted perfectly on a thick, “U” shaped pan.

  2. The Rotis should always be roasted on a low flame. Only then the moisture will evaporate and the Rotis will become crisp.

  3. The pan should not be too hot before putting the Roti on it. It should be just hot. If it is too hot, the Roti will have black spots and does not look very appealing.

  4. The Roti should be roasted by pressing it with a cloth gently on all sides. Then the Roti will not have bubbles or air pockets.
