  2. Take out a big lemon-sized dough. Form a ball out of it. Place it on the center of a greased plastic sheet or banana leaf. Evenly spread the dough with your greased fingers to make a moderately thin disc of about 6-inch diameter. Refer the pic.
  3. Heat a griddle or pan for cooking this disc. Sprinkle a few drops of oil on it. Place the raw flatbread on the center. Add a few drops of oil on the top. Cook it on a medium-low fire for 2 minutes. It should get golden on the bottom. Flip it now.

    Thanks for the comments. Unlike dosai, rice roti is made of a dough, not of a batter. This roti is a tasty breakfast dish. Salt you can adjust according to your taste.

    Yeah..Ashish. This masala roti is delicious. It actually doesn't need any side dish to eat with. It is spicy and tasty on its own. You can have a pickle or chutney as a side dish if you want.
