"Vasthada Rotti" or Hot n Sweet Indian Bread

Here is a simple "Roti" or Indian Bread, known as "Vasthada Rotti" in Konkani that has been made in my maternal grandparents home for generations.
Very easy to make and requires no side dish thanks to the Hot, Sweet and Salty nature of the rotti/Bread.
I make it on days when I am in no mood to cook but still prefer something home made which is warm and cozy to dig into! 

Makes 3
Wheat flour or Atta - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Cooking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Peppercorns - 4 - freshly ground but coarse - not powder
Water as required

Knead the Wheat flour along with water, sugar, salt, cooking soda and and crushed peppercorns to regular roti or chapati dough consistency. Keep aside for 15 mins.
Roll evenly into small thick rotis.
Pan fry without any oil or ghee.
Serve hot with lots of butter.
This can be eaten without any side dish as it has a perfect balance of sweetness, saltiness and pungency.
Tastes great with lots of Butter!!
