      So, I made rotis after many many months and they turned out ... oh so well. Those nice, thin, small phulkas.
      But, what if I want to keep them soft and intact so that I can eat them lets say next day. Though it is highly unlikely that I will do it or my ammi will appreciate it BUT sometimes one ends up making extra chapatis and so when no on'es around, like no massi; I for one would never throw it.

      So girly pearlies what do you do in situations like these? If ever you have faced such a situation.

      Freeze them if you want to use them say much later, and then to heat them up sprinkle some water on the frozen roti, wrap in a cloth and pop in microwave for about 30 seconds. They come out so nice and soft like that. Thats how we do the naans at home.

      Otherwise if they are brown ata rotis, I dont really see any point in keeping them for later, because those can only be eaten fresh.

      If I ever think that There may be rotis left over I spread butter on them as they come off the pan. That way if there are any left over I just wrap them in foil and leave them until later or the next day. They taste really good as well.
      To heat up put them under the grill, I think that they get rubbery in the microwave.

      Thats what I do for parathas for sehri. I make them at night and heat them up at sehri time.

      Exactly Catty. We do the same. Actually we refrigerate rotis, if ever there are any left and when needed take 'em out, place them in a plastic bag and then keep them in the microwave.

      But as Nandu jee said they become rubbery after a while :-D

      my mom makes roti and parata...100-200 at a time. Keeps some in the fridge others in the freezer and we just pop them into the oven (toaster ovens are great) and they taste like they were freshly made!

      make sure you use a plastic/ziplock type bag to keep them moist and fresh.
