The pressure on Hindu girls / females / women to roll out round roti’s is a dilemma that not even gender equality can solve. Amazingly I can roll out square roti’s with accurate measurements – right down to the diameter. I’ve rolled out Africa, heart shapes, apples and the odd isosceles triangle. Except a rare circle.
Indian moms place a lot of emphasis on rolling out round roti’s. Roll out a square in Mom in laws presence and the blame automatically falls on the girl’s Mom. Surely everyone rolled out square roti’s at some point?
I will post pics soon – probably next Tuesday when we make roti again.
