  • 1 tablespoon pista
  • 2 tablespoons kishmish (raisins)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground eliachi (cardamom)
  • 7 ounces plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Step by Step:

  1. Put the nuts, kishmish, sugar, coconut, and eliachi in a blender and pulse until roughly chopped. Place the mixture in a small bowl and leave to one side.
  2. Add the flour to a large bowl, make a well in the center, and add the melted butter and enough hot water to form dough. Knead until smooth and divide the dough into 5 equal balls.
  3. Lightly press one dough ball in flour, roll it into a circle of 2 1/2 inch diameter. Place the filling in the middle and seal by pulling the edges together to make a ball. Prepare all 5 balls.
  4. Grease a large frying pan with the oil and place over a medium-high heat.
  5. Lightly press the filled ball in flour on all sides and place the ball with sealed side up. Roll it into a 5 inch circle, using gentle pressure. (If the dough is sticky while rolling, sprinkle flour on both sides).
  6. Place the roti in the pan and fry on both sides for approximately 30 seconds or until brown spots appear. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
