Sri Lanka's Culinary World - Coconut Roti (POL ROTTI)

My daughter  " MUM, EXPECTATIONS  FROM YOU HAVE GONE SKY HIGH AFTER TASTING THIS DISH ".....so what was it that I made that brought these type of  compliments ?....Well I am about to tell you now....

Me and My family love to try many many different dishes from around the world....I make it once as a trial and if we all enjoy it then only then it becomes a regular menu....recently I have had an interest in everything about Sri Lanka....it's culture, food and entertainment.....list can go on and on...

Sri Lankan cooking has its own unique and distinctive set of dishes and flavours....somewhere between Indian and Thai cooking style...while I was browsing the net, particularly this recipe caught my attention and I thought I have to try it out...and I am glad it's been approved by the family so POL ROTI IS GOING ON OUR MENU...!!

You will need :-
  • 3 cups wheat flour
  • 1 cup fresh scrapped coconut
  • 4-5 green chillies crushed
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • water
method :-
In a large bowl mix flour, coconut, salt, onions, butter, and chilies. Mix thoroughly until pieces of onion and green chilies are coated with flour. Add water and mix to a suitable consistency. Divide the dough in to 8 equal balls.Flatten them to get a round rotti.( I tried a diffrent shape) You can decide the size of the rotti at this point either by fully flattening to achieve a crispy rotti, or by leaving it thicker. Heat a frying pan and add some butter to it. Fry rotties on both sides.  Serve with any curry or chutney...I served mine with Indian curry...Enjoy as much as my family did...
