Sweet Potato Roti

“When I tried this simple sweet potato roti recipe, I texted a photo to Pearly, my cooking mentor and friend. I think she was proud of me.”



  1. Cook the sweet potatoes in an oven or microwave, peel and mash while hot.
  2. Measure the sweet potato and combine in a bowl with flour.
  3. Mix with a fork, until well-mixed, then hand knead, but don’t over- knead.
  4. Roll the dough into a log shape and cut into twelve equal pieces.
  5. Roll out each piece on a floured surface until 2mm thick, keeping spare flour available for dusting.
  6. Place in a skillet on medium heat, cooking for just over two minutes, flipping over at thirty-second intervals.
  7. Eat plain or with curry, jam, or applesauce.
