How to make Srilankan Pol rotis ( Onion - Coconut flat breads )

  1. In a bowl , take refined flour , salt , fresh grated coconut , 1 teaspoon oil and knead into a soft dough .
  2. Consistency of the dough should be no sticky . Add oil to the dough so that spreading to rotis becomes easy .
  3. Check that the dough doesn’t stick to your finger . Tats the right consistency .
  4. Divide the dough into medium sized equal balls .
  5. Place it on an aluminium sheet / a flat plate . Grease the plate / sheet with oil .
  6. Spread the ball into small round rotis .
  7. Now take a teaspoon of chopped onions and place the onions at the centre of the roti . Close the roti by its ends and make into a big ball .
  8. Grease your fingers and the plate and start spreading this big ball into a medium sized thick roti .
  9. Similarly, spread the rest of the balls too into thick rotis . Don’t forget to stuff onions before spreading .
  10. Heat a pan . Place the pol rotis on the hot pan . Fry both the sides till Brown spots appear .
  11. Pol rotis are ready to serve .
  12. Serve hot with coconut sambol / kadala curry

My Tip:

The dough shouldn’t be sticky . So check with the water used while kneading the dough . Too much water becomes the spoiler.
