You can ever check your seasoning while kneading the little bit dough, if you feel salt is less you can add this time.

4. The dough should be little stiff than chapati dough or else you will not be able to roll it. Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes.

5. Now take medium sized balls from the dough. Dust the work surface lightly with flour and roll into a medium sized round like chapatis. Add little desi ghee in it and rolled it.

6. Place the rolled roti on a hot tava or griddle and cook one side, when one side is half cooked, flip and cook the other side. Smear some oil or ghee on one side and cook till browned and cooked..
