I was looking into videos making roti on a gas stove and then tried it myself and guess what, It totally works! My roti has never popped like it did straight on the fire.
I have a video clip on instagram:
You can use classic roti dough or even pizza dough. I´ve tried both.
Use flour:water about 2:1
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup warm water
- a teaspoon salt
Mix well, cover and let sit for an hour or so
Or use a classic pizza dough, everything you need to know about making one you can find here: HOW TO MAKE PIZZA DOUGH
When making roti, start by rolling out the dough, I make them about 5-6 inches. On a medium – hot pan heat it for 30 seconds on both side, then flip it over on the gas flame.
You can find good videos on how to at youtube by searching for roti gas stove
