If you don't have a thermometer you can try caramelizing the sugar in the oven. Easier to control.

comment How do I make my roti dough stretch thinner?
Flour seems good. Try following the steps on the leaner version. If the dough feels wet, try folding it without adding more flour, like in the video. Then knead, knead, knead. By hand it's hard to over knead.

comment Adding soy lecithin to coconut milk
I find liquid lecithin easier to use. You will need very little. If you use the lecithin found in supermarkets, about 2 to 4 teaspoons per gallon of milk! Commercial coconut milk is also homogenized (sprayed at high pressure through a thin nozzle), which helps keep it mixed, just like whole milk.

Your problem may be an oven with very uneven heat distribution.

Puréeing the frozen halves in the food processor with a touch a milk or water makes a quick ice-cream-like dessert.
