The coconut or Pol roti as called in Srilanka is an unique dish.I have posted variations of this

coconut roti.( Do check my previous posts).Today I’m going to give you a recipe of the

same ,with a variation of coconut water and Vallarai/gotukola .It was lovely with the onion or

katta sambol compulsorily served with in Sri Lanka.

For the recipe now.


2-3 cups flour

1 cup grated coconut

Coconut water (1 coconut)

1 tsp maldive fish (optional)

2-3 tsp red chillie powder

1 bundle leaves chopped fine

Little coconut oil to apply on griddle.


Bind all the ingredients together to make a light sticky dough.Set aside for 5-10 minutes.

Divide the dough into portions.

Apply coconut oil on the griddle and take each portion and pat on the griddle itself to a nice

thick roti ( not thin as chappathi).Once cooked on one side flip over to the other side and cook

till done.Serve with katta sambol or any spicy curry.
