Every Friday we go south of the ML boundaries in search of a delicious lunch. Sometimes it’s Murray Hill south or the Flatiron District, sometimes Gramercy and everything in between- but we just like to call it Flatiron Lunch.
Since learning about rumali (or roomali) rotis during my trip to India, I have been meaning to try out Roomali in Curry Hill. In case you were wondering, the name rumali roti translates to “handkerchief roti” because they are as thin as a, you guessed it, handkerchief. Unlike naan, which is put in an clay oven, rumali rotis are tossed like pizza dough and cooked briefly on a dome heated from inside. Notably, Roomali doesn’t serve their rolls in rumali rotis. Strange, I know.
