I tried the recipe and i think i got 60% sucess at first attempt. I did face some issues trying to make sure the two doughs are even size so that they stick on top of each other properly. The other issue i faced was that with the tava so hot, the roti almost was getting burnt without the inside getting cooked properly. I might have to adjust the settings of the tava. But other than that great recipe...would not have tried making it myself if it were not for this demo here.
