Ingredients
  • 2 cups Atta - Whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup fresh shredded coconut
  • 3-4 green chillies
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • coconut oil for greasing the griddle
Instructions
  1. Take the fresh shredded coconut and green chillies in a small mixer and pulse it 3-4 times so that the coconut is very finely shredded and the chillies are ground.
  2. Take a big bowl and add in the atta flour, ghee, finely chopped onion, finely chopped curry leaves, salt and ground coconut – green chillies mixture. Make sure to really finely chop the ingredients. Otherwise the dough will break while rolling. Add few tablespoon of water at a time and mix the flour mixture well until a firm dough is formed.
  3. Take a golf ball size of dough, dust the dough ball generously in flour. Start rolling the dough gently.
  4. Spread the dough to a 4-5 inch circle. Repeat with the remaining dough. Set aside on a big plate.
  5. Heat a griddle and sprinkle oil on the griddle. Place the rolled dough on the griddle. Sprinkle oil to the top of the roti and cook for a minute.
  6. Flip over and cook for a minute more. Cook till its golden and brown spots appear all over the roti on both the sides. Cut it into four pieces and serve hot!
