Turkish Roti is a easy to prepare dish. I have used normal Chapati dough for the base. For stuffing I have used varieties of vegetables like Carrot, beans, Capsicum and Cabbage. Turkish Roti is very attractive especially for children who are not willing to have vegetables. Even elders love to have Turkish Roti with sauce. I have given step by step procedure how to prepare Turkish Roti. Prepare and enjoy eating Turkish Roti.

2] Clean and cut into small pieces all the vegetables as seen in the image above. I have used Radish, Carrot, Beans, Capsicum and Cabbage but you can add more vegetables if you like.

3] In a frying pan, heat 3 tsp of Oil, add cut Beans and fry for 2-3 min in medium flame. Once the Beans is cooked half, add Carrot and cook for 2-3 min. Then add Radish, Capsicum, Cabbage and Spring Onion. Fry the vegetables and allow to cook for about 5 min. Do not add water. All the vegetables must be cooked in Oil. Note: All the vegetables must be half-cooked. Do not cook vegetables fully since they will turn too soft.

4] Now add Salt, Pepper powder, Ajinomoto and Soya Sauce to the pan. Fry for about 2 min and remove from the flame. Leave this Vegetable Sabji to be become cool.

5] Take the dough from Step 1, divide into small balls of suitable size and roll it out just like you would the Chapati dough. Place the Vegetable Sabji in the middle of the rolled out dough just as shown in the image. Fold all the four sides to have the vegetables sandwiched between the rolled out dough. Press the edges of this stuffed dough roll, otherwise while baking on the tava, Roti may open making the Vegetable Sabji to come out.

  1. it looks so yummy , better than taco bell !!! but I am having one question… does it cook inside layer of tortilla [chapati] , when we fry on pan ???

  2. Hi Hema,

    Hope you and your family had a good Diwali. Could you kindly tell me how much water should I put in to making the rotti dough please?

    • Yes we had a great Deepavali in my in-laws house in Chickmagalur. Enjoyed quite a bit by seeing places nearby and having great festival lunch and dinner.
      For Turkish Roti, the amount of water required is the same as that for preparing the Chapati or Roti dough. It takes about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of water to prepare Roti/Chapati, but do not pour the water at once. Slowly add the water to the dough and mix well with hand until you can get a soft dough which is not watery/wet. Keep this dough for half an hour so that the Roti comes out soft. If you have still doubt let me know. Thanks for asking.

  3. Wow….. Seems like you’ll had a good holiday 🙂 And i can imagine the food as well….. Thanks so much for the tip. Take care
