Routinely people write to me - I have been put on a diet and my rotis have been stopped, can't live like this forever, what should I do? Very simply, listen to yourself, your heritage and lineage over anybody else. And follow the basics - - Buy gehu, not atta. - Peeso it in the neighbourhood chakki. - Store it in a nice steel dabba. - And every time you take the atta out, use clean hands and a dry spoon. Simple enough? Then roll it into a dough the usual way with the tel (or ghee), namak, water, and make just enough to last you for that one meal or at the most for that one day. The fresher, the better. Winters are also the time for parathas - alu, mooli, kulith ka parathas. They taste great with achaar & chutneys, keep your body strong and stomach light. Use the iron tava and it's best-eaten piping hot."
