Proud Owner of a Roti Grill - Thanks to Santhi

roti grill in action

Thanks to Santhi of Me and My Kitchen, I am now a proud owner of a "roti grill". Santhi had read one of my comments on a blog where I commented on how I had never seen a roti grill in my life before. She immediately e-mailed me offering to send me one. It arrived last week in the mail. I couldn't wait to use it so I did get to use it over the weekend. This roti grill comes in handy for all those unlucky folks like me who have an electric range. If you have a gas range, you don't need this to make phulkas. Shammi of Food, in the main has an amazing post on phulkas!

Thanks again, Santhi. I will be thinking of you everytime I make phulkas/rotis!

yummmm.. Phulkas... I can almost taste it here. I have had phulkas and channa at Bangalore at a small crummy restaurant and it was so yummy, it was most of the times my regular lunch from work. I have tried explaining to people about this paper thin tasty bread…and my friends looks clueless. I think I should make this and make them taste it. Thanks a lot!

Well Jeff. I heart them too :). One of my friends taught me a neat trick about kneading the dough only once or twice per week and storing it in the refrigerator. That way making rotis only takes me about 10 min before dinner :).

Sometimes, what we think as crummy old restaurants, serve up some of the delicious food, don't they?

Santhi said...

Thats so sweet of you to do this post.

I am very happy that you are enjoying the grill :)

Any idea where Santhi got the grill from?

Was it from an Indian store? Or is there a way to order it online?

I too have an electric range at home and would love to have a grill like that.

I have been looking for the roti grill for quite some time. I live in Dallas and have never come across it in any of the Indian stores.

If it is infact from an Indian store i will try to look for it with a keener eye next time.

I would really appreciate if you let me know where she found it.
thanks,
Jasper.

I think Santhi said she found it in an Indian store. I am not sure if it will be available online. I will send Santhi an e-mail and ask!

Thanks for the info. I will wait for updates on the name of the Indian store from you.

I love phulkas and haven't had the chance to have them ever since i landed here.

L2C: I have the same roti grill, which i got from Edision "Sabzi Mandi" from NJ.
One info: Dont use it in dishwashers, handle coating is lost:(I accidently left it in dishwasher, lost my handle coating), otherthen that it is very fine and love this possession.

Lakshmi said...

nice one, your roti looks so good.

Santhi said...

Jasper,

If you live in chicago area, there are probably a lot of Indian stores around where you should be able to find this grill.

Just ask for a roti grill. Most of the Indian stores which are decently big carry these and then chicago has such huge Indian community, There is no way you wont be able to find this.

Do let me know if you have any trouble finding it.

Hope this helps.

I alos posted this in my blog too Jasper.

Posting here to make sure you will read it from one place atleast. :)

You can make yummy roasted(i am not getting the write word) corn with this over the gas ranges. I use to enjoy them back home during my visits to the beach and fairs. Give it a try.

Santhi & luv2cook,

thanks for finding the time to answer my question. I really appreciate it.

I live in Dallas and i will look for the grill in the Indian stores here.

Thanks,
Jasper.

Jasper,

I think you can find something similar in the BBQ kitchen tools section. I am sure I have seen it in Bed Bath and Beyond for roasting vegetables on a charcol grill or try your Wal-mart for cheaper version.

sid said...

i think thats called a chapati rite?

Inji Pennu said...

Jasper

Try this or another one. I think even Wal-mart has it under BBQ Tools Section.

I have to check their stores.

Thanks,
Jasper.
