Kasma Loha-unchit's Thai roti is fabulous. Each roti is ball is rolled paper thin, but they are swirled in a snail like manner before hitting the griddle. Very addictive!

Amanda,if you go to the youtube site and type in "thai roti" you will find an astonishing slew of videos showing assorted Thai street vendors and their technique of making the little ball of dough into a thin sheet. A couple of them include recipes. I can see why you want to make these!
