  2. On a floured worktop press and knead for 5 - 7 minutes.

  10. Allow approx 1 minute per side.
  11. When cooked, place onto thick kitchen foil and while still hot turn in half and clap 5 or 6 times from opposite corners to get rid of air pockets.
  12. The roti will stay hot in foil without spoiling for about 30 minutes.
