For the day of Blogging Marathon#37 under the theme Kitchen Basics, I am sharing you how to freeze the pre-cooked roti for later use.
I am not a person who prefer frozen foods except some veggies for handy.But sometimes I freeze the roti and Puran Poli if I make it excess or need to make it in a bulk for parties.
These days my little one keeps me busy and not letting me do an elaborate cooking I make rotis and cook it for 30 seconds and freeze it in the weekends for the week days dinner or lunch.
Preparation Time ~ 25 minutes
Resting Time ~ 30 minutes
Cooking Time ~ 7-10 minutes
Makes ~ 14-15
|Wheat flour/gothumai maavu||2 cups|
|Parchment paper||14 sheets|
|Wheat flour||for dusting|
In a wide bowl take the wheat flour,salt,to this add the oil and mix it well.Sprinkle little water at a time and knead it to a soft,stiff dough.Let it rest it rest for 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal portions and roll in a floured surface to a thin disc.
Heat the pan and cook it for 30 seconds both the sides and remove it.Continue for the rest of the batter.
After cooling stack the rotis and use the parchment paper in between each roti to prevent sticking.
Put the stacked rotis in a zip lock cover and freeze it.Whenever needed take it from the freezer and thaw it for 15 minutes and heat the pan and cook it both sides and brush it with ghee or oil.
Serve it with curry of your choice.
- While making it in bulk keep 10-12 rotis in a separate cover and freeze it.That way no need to thaw all the roti.
