  5. Remove the lid and knead the dough well till it becomes soft and pliable without any lumps.
  6. Make big lemon-sized balls, put the balls on a plastic paper and pat each one to form a roti of 5 to 6 inches diameter
  7. To get a neat round, use a plastic/stainless steel lid of same diameter as a cutter.
  8. Collect the extra pieces of dough and use to prepare another roti.
  9. Lift the plastic sheet, allow the roti to fall on your palm.
