Sweet Potato Roti

  • Author: Sasi Balaraman
  • Yield: 10 1x


Soft and chewy Indian whole-wheat flatbreads made with sweet-potatoes. Though lightly spiced, these rotis are on the sweeter side due to the nature of the vegetable. Perfect for serving with any spicy Indian curries.


  • Whole wheat flour – 2 cups
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Hing – 1/2 tsp, optional
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil – 2 tsp


  1. Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water until soft. Let it cool and mash it up really well without any lumps. Add rest of the ingredients and knead until you get a soft & pliable dough. Knead for atleast 15 mins and set aside for 20 mins. Add water (only if needed) while kneading the dough.
  2. Grease your hands and rolling board with oil. Take about 1/4 cup of dough and roll it into a ball. Use a rolling-pin or hands, whichever you prefer and flatten the ball into thin circle. Go as thin as you could go.
  3. Heat a griddle and when hot, place the flattened roti on the griddle and cook it until brown spots appear on both the sides. Remove from heat and store it in a covered container.
  4. Serve warm with any spicy side of your choice.
