    Directions:

    1. 1
      FOR THE FILLING:.
    2. 2
      In a skillet over medium heat, melt ghee. Add garlic and saute 1 minute then add saffron, cumin and saute 1 minute more.
    3. 3
      Add chickpeas, water and a pinch of salt. Allow all to simmer until water has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    4. 4
      Cool and puree in food processor.
    5. 5
      FOR THE ROTIS:.
    6. 6
      Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add ghee and enough water until a nice soft dough forms; not too dry. Allow to rest for 10 minutes and cut dough into 8 or 10 parts and form balls. Again, let dough rest for 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Make a well in the center of a ball, put 3 to 4 teaspoons of filling in the whole, and pinch, closing the well. Repeat with rest of the balls. Tuck extra dough under, put on floured board, and roll out into 8 to 10-inch disks. Brush top with melted ghee or vegetable oil.
    8. 8
      Heat a griddle to a medium heat and brush with ghee or vegetable oil. Cook dough on 1 side for about 2 minutes, brush top with ghee or vegetable oil and flip disk to cook the other side for about 1 minute. Serve warm.
    9. 9
      TO MAKE GHEE:.
    10. 10
      Cut 1 lb unsalted butter into chunks and place in a heavy bottomed saucepan and into a preheated 300 degree F oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Skim foam from top and pour the liquid into a glass jar, leaving behind any milk solids on the bottom of the pot. This is good for 6 months kept in the refrigerator.

      I'd never heard of Roti before but since moving here to Trinidad see it everywhere and had to give it a try. It was so easy and sooo good, I even added some toasted cumin seeds to the dough, brushed the top with melted butter when it was done and YUM - went great with the lentils we had for dinner. My biggest problem with prep was in the ingrediants it said "1/2" but not if it was cup, tablespoon, or teaspoon - I don't know if that's just my computer or what (I did cut it in half for the two of us) but I quickly figured it had to be cups, so no real problem. Now I can make my own Roti when the mood hits which will be often. Made for ZWT8 for team Diners, Winers and Chives.
