How to Make Healthy rice flour roti

  • Heat a kadai with water (about 750 ml).
  • When the water starts boiling, add salt, jeera, chopped chillies, til, coriander, curry leaves, 2 tsp oil and fried methi leaves.
  • Lastly, add rice flour slowly, stirring continuously to form a tight dough.
  • Cover and leave aside for 10 to 15 mins.
  • Remove the lid and knead the dough well till it becomes soft and pliable without any lumps.
  • Make big lemon-sized balls, put the balls on a plastic paper and pat each one to form a roti of 5 to 6 inches diameter
  • To get a neat round, use a plastic/stainless steel lid of same diameter as a cutter.
  • Collect the extra pieces of dough and use to prepare another roti.
  • Lift the plastic sheet, allow the roti to fall on your palm.
  • Drop it carefully on to a dosa pan/tawa.
  • Cook the roti with a little oil till crisp, brown spots appear on both sides.
  • The result will be crisp rotis with soft central portion.
  • Serve with coconut chutney/allum chutney (ginger).
