White & Brown Roti

Roti is an unleavened soft flatbread that is so delicious! It is also known as Chapati amongst traditional Indian communities. It is really good by itself, but it is amazing when served with a saucy Indian dish, like Butter Chicken, Mince Curry or a saucy Chicken Tikka Masala. Roti is perfect for sopping up extra gravy.

Our extremely soft Roti’s are Vegan with no dairy products used in its production, made with only a premium quality wholewheat flour with a heart approved sunflower brand oil, salt and water.

Roti Rolls can be made with a variety of fillings of your choice. See below for this week’s favourite Roti Roll filing.

Ingredients:

Naan

Naan is a soft and pillowy Indian-style flatbread traditionally made in a tandoor, or cylindrical clay oven. The dough gets slapped against the walls of the tandoor, where it adheres and bakes quickly over a burning fire.

 

Naan is delicious with your favourite curry! Variations we make are; plain, butter or garlic.

Mince Curry

Ingredients:

30 ml sunflower oil

1 onion - chopped 15 ml (or more to taste)

1tsp Ginger and Garlic

Medium curry powder

500 g lean beef mince

1 x 410 g can chopped tomatoes

5 ml sugar

500 g potatoes - cubed

Water for cooking

6 Roti’s

 

Cooking Method: 

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and fry over a medium heat for five minutes, add the ginger and garlic before adding the curry powder and stirring well.

Add the mince and cook, stirring until it is no longer pink. Add the tomatoes, sugar and potatoes. Add water little bit at a time so that the mince does not stick to the pan Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft and cooked

Serve rolled up in a roti, with a tossed salad.

Tip: Try lamb mince for a variation. If your family enjoys the taste, use ostrich mince as a healthy alternative to beef. Add fresh mint for extra flavour.
