  • Ingredients:
  • 2 Cups Rice Flour
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup Fresh Coconut
  • 1 and 1/2 to 2 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Salt or as required
  • 2 to 3 tbsp Finely chopped Coriander
  • 1 Sprig curry leaves finely chopped
  • 3/4 to 1 Cup of very warm water


  • Method:
  • In a bowl take Rice flour and all the other Ingredients except water, mix well now start adding water little by little for making a small ball. Don't make a ball with all the flour at once, It's better to make little by little.
  • You need to add rice flour liberally on to the surface and keep beating it around like you do in Jolada rotti turning it around so that it doesn't stick to the surface.
  • If you are unable to keep making it to round as big as she has made, it takes time to practice so, you can use rolling pin and make it to a round, don't forget to add rice flour liberally on to the surface now and then otherwise it will get stuck. I would say start with little round balls and spread it more than your palm size to start with.
  • She has made a perfect round as you can see. slide it on to a plate and on to the tawa.
  • Once you have put it on the tawa, sprinkle water on top of it, so it gets wet all round, which helps in cooking.
  • Keep a wet cloth and press it around lightly this helps in making the rotti fluff a little bit.
  • Add some oil on both sides of the rotti, and cook well on both the sides until you see little red spots.
  • Once it is done serve it with yoghurt which is really perfect for the summer weather. I enjoyed it with some pickle. She had more chilli powder so, it was very spicy and yoghurt was a good combo. I went home and made the same breakfast but used less chilli powder so I served it with yoghurt and chutney powder mixed in it.
