The Zen of Making Roti
By Sunra Rainz

Why is it my chapattis are never round?

Sometimes long, sometimes square,

usually misshapen, but never round. Still,

they taste good and they’re a pleasing

toasted shade of brown. My mom rolls

her eyes, says, Why are your chapattis

never round? But she eats them anyway.

Well, you would. They taste good.
