Default silicone baking mat for roling roti

Do you think it'd be less sticky or not sticky to use silicone baking
mat? This lady uses it:

I've never made them before (now I want to!) but I would have to
guess the silicone mat helps the roti stay in place while you roll
them as opposed to just a floured board where they would slide
around. I think you need to limit how much flour is added during the
rolling. The silicone has a sort of stickiness, the dough would
grip to without gettting stuck.

Plus, you will notice she has a tiled counter which requires her to
use something to roll them.

Yeah, I do notice that she has a tile counter. I am not sure about
the flour board sliding around as much as sticking if not enough
flour is used. So I think the benefit might be the limit on flour used
during rolling. Too much use would make the roti be a bit hard. I
made a few last summer. It was a bit harder than I'd like. So, I
guess I should get the silicone baking mat she has. I wonder what size
she got. Does it look like 9in x12 in to you? It's at about 2:20 mins
into the video.

Here is another video of roti by a different person. Roti is also
called Chapati in different dialect in India and Pakistan:

she is using wood board: Paratha (Indian Flatbread) Recipe by Manjula

If you like roti with layers, look at this one called parathas. She
made it a lot healthier than the one I have had which was full of oil
and butter in the making process and alos ith all purpose flour.

If you like it it with potato filling, this one is by the lady
"Manjula". And she is using the baking mat to roll Paratha

Roti and chapati, while sometimes used interchangeably, are not "different
dialects". Roti means bread and usually refers to unleavened bread, of
which chapati is a specific type.


You'll have to forgive amandaF. "Indian" is not her native language.

Yes, possibly maybe not. On second thought, no or maybe yes, or not.
