The word rumal means handkerchief in Urdu and Hindi, and the name rumali roti means handkerchief bread. The extreme thinness of the bread and the fact that it is usually served folded like a handkerchief are the probable reasons behind the name.
The bread is usually made with a combination of whole and white wheat flours and best cooked in a tandoor.
