Guyanese oil roti is one of my favorite sides for chutney, stir-fries, and curry. Flour, baking powder, salt, water, and oil are kneaded together to create a soft dough. The dough is then rolled out and cooked in a hot skillet to create flaky layers.

In a large bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add enough water to create a sticky dough. Use a rubber spatula or your bare hands to combine the mixture. Add more water if the dough is dry.
Sprinkle flour onto your work surface and place the soft dough on it. Knead for 2 to 3 minutes.
Cover with a damp paper towel and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
Cut the dough into 5 equal pieces.
