Step-By-Step

1Heat 2 tbsp of Olive oil in a pan and fry 5 C of broccoli florets in that oil, until all the florets get mashed.
2Meanwhile grind 3 C oats in a blender to make a fine powder.
3Mix together 3 c of ground oats, 1 c flour, mashed broccoli florets, spices, 1 tsp olive oil, salt and 1 c water to make a fine dough.
4Make small balls of the dough and roll each one out in the shape of a disc (Roti) using a rolling pin.

Tip: use some flour to dust your surface, rolling pin and the balls if the dough gets sticky during the rolling process.
5Pre-heat a skillet on the stove and each time, immediately after rolling out a roti, put the roti on the hot skillet, spoon 1 tsp (required amount) of oil around the roti and cook it till it turns golden brown on either side, flipping it every 15-20 sec.

Tip: when you sprinkle some water on the skillet and if it evaporates immediately, that is the right temperature at which you will make your rotis!
