Preheat a dry pan (preferably nonstick) at medium-high. Cook frozen roti until air bubbles start to form inside (30-45 seconds). Turn roti over and continue cooking (30-45 seconds) while gently pressing bubbles with spatula to help fill roti with hot air. Serve puffed roti hot from pan. Only previously cooked roti should be reheated in the microwave.

Raw roti can also be used to create stuffed parathas. Just prepare your favourite stuffing, spread it on one of the rotis. Stack another roti on top and seal the sides by pressing the edges all the way around. For a stronger seal, lightly brush the entire edge of one of the roti with water before sealing. Fry both sides for 1/2 tsp of oil per Paratha to obtain crispy outer shell.

Heating times may vary based on individual stove.
