  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped curry leaves
  • 2 green chilies (not-so-hot variety), finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 5 teaspoons oil (1 teaspoon per rotti)


  1. Add rice flour in a mixing bowl. Add all of the other ingredients (except for the oil). Mix. Knead, adding water little-by-little, to get a firm but pliable dough.
  2. Take a big lemon-sized portion of dough and form a ball. Place it on the center of a greased plastic sheet or banana leaf. Spread the dough evenly with greased fingers to make a moderately thin disc of about 6 inches in diameter (see photo for reference).
  3. Heat a griddle or pan and sprinkle a few drops of oil on it. Place the flatbread dough in the center. Add a few drops of oil on the top. Cook it on medium-low heat for 2 minutes. It should become golden on the bottom.
  4. Flip it and roast the other side for 2–3 minutes. Add a little oil on the top.
  5. Remove the flatbread and repeat the process to make additional rottis using the remaining dough.
  6. Serve with spicy chutney or pickle.
