To puff up Roti, cook one side 10 secs and other side 20 secs and put the 1st side on flame to puff. Always cook one side more than the other, and put the less cooked side on flame. Also, don't over cook Roti or make Roti on a very hot tawa.

Can I cook Rotis in advance and consume it for Lunch/Dinner?

Yes. Making our Rotis don't need any advanced cooking skills. If you know how to put a gas stove on, you can cook our Rotis. If you are not comfortable making a Phulka, you can enjoy it as a Chapati by cooking the Roti on tawa and applying Ghee/Oil while cooking.
