This is a soft roti made with rice flour and
This is like the Srilankan’ Pol roti ‘which I have
posted earlier . ( with all purpose flour and
coconut). The only difference is the addition of
hot water. Both rotis contain their uniqueness
in taste ,but this has a softer texture .
To this I innovated a ‘ fried onion katta sambol’
which was a wonderful match for the roti.
I will be sharing both recipes
So let’s go to the roti recipe first
200 gm rice flour ( slightly roasted for 5
1/2 of a coconut grated
Salt to taste
1 tblsp oil
Boiling hot water
Mix in the oil and salt to the flour . Pour hot
water till the dryness of the flour is not seen .
Allow to cool add coconut and knead to a fine
dough ( 5 minutes).
Roll it on a floured / oiled board ( cut into
uniform circles if you like).
Heat a griddle ( normal one is best for this ) .
If your using a non stick no need to apply oil .
Smear oil lightly on the tawa .
Once hot cook rotis one by one on both sides.
Serve with onion sambol
Now to the recipe for fried onion sambol
3-4 sliced onions
7-8 red chillies
Few curry leaves
Juice if 1 lime
1/2 -1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste
Heat oil , add sliced onions , curry leaves with
salt and sauté till onion turns light brown .
Powder the chillies in a mixer coarsely, and
add the rest of the ingredients.
Pulse the mixer for 1-2 seconds to get a coarse
mixture . Serve with rotis!
Variations: 1.You could add onions and green chillies to the rice flour.
2.Adding moringa leaves with onion and green
chillies is another variation.
