Bascially I love this rotti/ bread is fat free a very Healthy diet. My paatis, periammas and chittis make it…….Even today when I go to my father’s village it is like a staple food they make this ubbu rotti so fast so tasty, like our everyday tiffin like dosa, upma and idlis….My mom does not do it too often, as she is not used to it much, When ever we go to our father’s village during the Rathothsavas (chariot festival) in the whole village in everybody’s house they cook idlis and ubbu rottis with Kaayi chutney…….,I came to know later on from my neighbour Manu aunty who also comes from Hassan district but they are Jain’s!!, they also cook this type of rotti but they make it in the size of chappatis, but in my dad’s house they made it in palm size!!, This roti goes very well with paruppu Thuviyal (Dal Chutney) or with Brinjal gojju, Here I made it with Menthyad gojju (fenugreek gravy).
UBBU ROTTI (PUFFED RICE ROTI’S)
INGREDIENTS FOR METHOD I
This is the basic way actually it is done and I still do ubbu rotti this way because I love it this way and is more authentic , learnt this rotti from my paati like this, It is a little tedious job, but it is a good one….
1 cup rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
1and 3/4th to 2 cup of water
- Insert a ladle into it and close the lid (the lid won’t close completely because of the ladle and allow it to cook for a few more minutes.
- Take the vessel out from the stove, mix the flour with the help of the ladle like u do when You make Raagi balls,
- When it is completely mixed take out the rice ball and press it down nicely sprinkling little water and rice flour and make it into a nice big round Rice ball, cover it with a wet cloth.
- make lemon sized balls and flatten then into chapatis with the help of your hand or with the help of rolling pin and little rice flour.
- Actually it should be flattened with the help of ur fingers that is middle of ur palm, to a big round chapati shape!!, continuously trying this will make u an expert, If u know how to make jolada rotti (corn flour chapatis) it is just like that
- Put it on the tawa for 3 to 4 min, then u have to take it out and put it on the stove directly it puffs up their just like ur pulkas, nice soft !!, Mine puffs up the tawa/flattened girdle itself, putting it on the stove top gives that smokey flavour to the rottis
- They are now ready to serve with any side dish u want.
1 cups Rice Flour
1 3/4 th 2 Cups of water
Required quantity of salt
1 tbsp oil
- In a broad vessel, put in the Rice flour, salt and a tbsp of oil and mix well,
- Then add warm water little by little until it gains the consistency of chapati dough.
- cover it with a wet cloth
- Take a lemon sized ball, put some Rice flour on the table top and flatten this ball into palm sized chapati or roll it with the help of rolling pin just like a chapati.
- It is again cooked in the same way as I have told in the Method I
