If you have no luck with that maybe try a search for "Chapati" it's an Indian flat bread probably similar to Roti?

Ahh Roti, My favourite food.

Never tried making it though as it is supposed to be quite difficult (even though the Malays make it look very easy).

Pohs Kitchen did it a while ago and I reckon she would be somewhat of an expert on them;

Gday Gordon
You need to use 'sharps' instead of ordinary flour. You should be able to get it at the local Indian food supplier.

On Masterchef one of the competitors made it very simply using Attah flour and so of course, the show sponsor Coles supermarkets, immediatley started stocking this flour and I being the sucker I am, bought it! But actually the instructions on the packet are super easy - basically add water, knead, stretch and fry on a hot grill plate. Perfect for camping actually. Look for it in the flour section, however the one we bought came in a clear plastic container, not a paper bag.

Woolworths/Safeway stocks attah flour - in a plastic bottle, which is handy. Recipes on the bottle.

First I must tell you there are many types of roti--Chapati,Paratha,Dhal Puri,Buss up shot,Dosti, Sada and others.Coming from Trinidad roti is as common there as the Aussie pie here and usually served with curry goat ,chicken or shrimp.The roti you find here is usually a form of chapati in a very basic form and is similar to your naan bread.These should not be hard to make but the tastiest of all Dhal Puri Roti is not at all easy to make and takes a lot of practice.If you are in the Sydney area I believe there are two Trinidad roti shops where you will experience what a true roti is.Google" Trinidad roti recipe" and you will find a lot of info.

Generally speaking the Roti is Asian and probably the most common forms being Canai and Murtabak.

I would still like to see/taste the Trinidad version though, I bet it's good!

Or try naan , much easier.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/naan-bread/

Very similar to 'normal' bread only roll it flat and thin and you can do it in the (dry) frying pan like roti.

Sitting the dough after rolling out the flats will ensure a softer, less chewy, result.

I make the simple naan/roti when travelling away from commercial bread supplies and not wanting to fire up camp oven to make "proper" bread. Cook it in frying pan. You can experiment with flavours added. eg. garlic, various dried herbs (I like oregano or basil). It is good with red capsicum chopped finely and added. Or onion.
