Roti: ro·ti – noun ˈrō-tē
a round soft flat unleavened bread; also : such a bread wrapped around a filling and eaten as a sandwich.
Dozens of roti makers would make roti by hand for more than 100,000 people at the time of Rabwah Jalsa’s!
The Promised Messiah (as) writes:
“In a dream I saw an angel seated on an elevated platform in the guise of a boy. In his hand he was holding a pure loaf of bread, which was very bright (and it was very big, equal to about four normal loafs). He gave it to me and said:
“This is for you and for the dervishes [pious followers] who are with you “
“I had interpreted the loaf of bread as meaning that God Himself will provide for me and for my followers and that we will not be rendered anxious on account of lack of provision”
(Nazulul Masih, pp. 206-207)
This vision has been manifesting itself since the first Jalsa in Qadian. Now , Jalsa Salana 2013 will see this revelation attain new heights.
The oval pitta bread has evolved into “fresh, round and sizzling rotis (chapattis)”, as described by the man behind the project.
