    1      teaspoon      oil
  250      grams         (2 cups) plain flour
                         Water

 Mix the oil and the flour with a bit of water to make a soft dough.  Knead
 well and allow to rest for 30 minutes.  Roll into 4 balls then roll out into
 circles, spread with butter and sprinkle with flour.  Re-roll the dough and
 roll into circles again.  Fry gently with a little oil until brown flecks appear

 NOTES : This is very similar to how I remember it being made in British
 Guiana in the early 1960s.  Ghee was used instead of butter.  I don't
 remember that very much oil was used to cook them.  The roti were slapped
 between the hands while they were still hot from the giddle.  Sometimes they
 were made with spiced lentils (“dal”?) inside.  I can't remember how that
 was done.  (Rosemary Winters)
