It was added to the preparation by spitting into the dough. The person making the rotis, now identified as Shoaib, was caught on camera while he indulged in the act.
After the video was shared on Twitter to go viral, it caught the attention of the police force who took cognisance in this regard.

The incident is a case of concern but no new to the UP city. There have been similar incidents in the past where people involved in the cooking process, especially rotis, mixed their spit into it. Of such, a case that caught attention of media and netizens was when a chef was arrested in Meerut after his video of spitting on dough while making ‘rotis’ at a wedding function surfaced on the internet.
