1 cup grated fresh coconut
2 teaspoon cumin seeds
6 green chili minced
3 teaspoons ghee
handful cilantro chopped finely
1/3 cup finely diced onions
4 teaspoons oil to fry roti.
salt to taste
1.In a bowl take all the ingredients except oil and mix well until a crumb is formed.Add about 1/2 cup of warm water and knead well to form a dough.Divide the dough to 6 equal portions.
2.Smear oil in a small saute pan, take a portion of dough and with your hands start pressing so that it forms a flat pancake.
3.With your finger make small holes so you can apply oil while frying.
4.Turn on the flame on high and when you hear a sizzle turn it down to medium and let cook until crispy for about 1-2 minutes.Add a drop of oil in each hole.
5.Flip and let cook on the other side.Take off the stove and serve hot with your favorite chutney.
While spreading the roti make sure the pan is not hot and you spread it evenly.
You can also spread the roti on a banana leaf of parchment paper and transfer it to a hot pan to cook.Transfer gently so it doesn’t break.
