Roti, or as it is more known, chapatti, is a Pakistani staple food which is traditionally made using flour when the roti’s were made from wheat. However, with multigrain flour on the market offering an equal measurement of wheat, barley and other grains, this means that roti’s are filled with fibre goodness. Plus, their rich and healthy carbs means they provide a lot of energy!
