How to Make Cheeni kilangu rotti

  • Peel the skin of sweet potato and chop it into big cubes and pressure cook it.
  • Allow for 2-3 whistles as we need to cook the sweet potatoes nicely so that it gets smashed.
  • Even we can keep the sweet potatoes as a whole in a vessel and pressure cook it and then we can remove the skin and smash it.
  • Take the cooked potatoes and smash it nicely.
  • In a vessel, add the smashed sweet potatoes, cumin seeds, salt and red chilli powder.
  • Add wheat flour and mix everything nicely to make a chapatti dough.
  • If in case it is dry, sprinkle some water to make a nice dough. Keep the dough set aside for 15 mins.
  • After 15 mins, knead the dough again and make small balls out of the dough and using a rolling pin, roll the dough ball to a thin roti. Repeat the steps and roll the remaining balls.
  • Heat a tawa, when the tawa is hot enough, add the roti, and add little oil or butter and allow it to cook it on one side.
  • Turn the roti to another side and cook evenly. Repeat the same for cooking the rest of rotis.
