directions

  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, coconut and salt.
  • Add some water.
  • Grease your palm with a little butter.
  • Then, mix the batter well to form a dough.
  • (The idea behind greasing your palms is to avoid the batter from sticking to your palms).
  • Add chillies and onions.
  • Mix well.
  • Divide the dough into 6-8 equal sized balls.
  • Then, using a rolling pin, on a floured board, roll out each ball into a round roti.
  • Heat a flat pan (tawa).
  • Put the roti on it in the middle of the pan.
  • When one side is cooked, turn it and cook the other side until light brown specs appear on either side.
  • Remove from pan.
  • Serve hot with Pol Sambhar (recipe posted separately).

    I would love to make this bread, but, what how exactly do I prepare the "scraped" coconut. Is it ground, fresh coconut?

    Great recipe. This is not an Indian recipe this is a Sri Lankan recipe. "Pol" means coconut in sinhalese. Would be nice if the author or the owners of the website make the correction.
