Oats Roshi ( flatbread)

The flour we purchase is beginning to loose its freshness. Plus I am trying to stretch the amount of flour I use and came up with this roshi or flatbread recipe during the lockdown.  Even though this doesn't go very well with curries with gravy but it is nice paired with a dry curry such as my black pepper tuna curry or kulhimas or any other dry curry.
The oats give it a nice nutty taste and its good for you too.

I used half oats half regular flour. I used quick-cooking oats, which I ground in my spice grinder. Then mixed with flour, salt a little vegetable oil and some hot water.  Knead and rest under a damp cloth for about 10 to 20 minutes before rolling it. The resting helps to relax the dough and its easier to roll.
