Roll out the dough. Spread butter or ghee and sprinkle with flour. Make a cut from the centre out to the edge and roll making a cone. Press the peak and flatten the centre of the cone. Leave to "rest" about 15 - 30mins
Roll out on a floured board Using the flat side of a cup or other utensil, dip into butter or ghee and coat an already hot tawah. Place the dough onto the tawah.
Spread the ghee or butter on one side using the flat edge of the cup, then turn over onto the other side to cook.
Spread butter or ghee on the other side the same way. When cooked on both sides use a dabla to break up the roti. (You can alternatively, wrap the roti in a clean cloth and beat with you hands or bailna).
