About Pashtiyah or Rice rotis with Keema Recipe

Pashtiyah or Rice rotis are dishes prepared on special occasion in my in laws family. A popular Bangalore Muslim Cuisine. These rotis are made with rice flour that is steamed cooked first and then rolled out like rotis. Finally they are fried on a pan with very little oil on both sides. These rotis are best teamed with any non veg curry or keema. In this post I have paired these rotis with spicy matar keema.

How to make Pashtiyah or Rice rotis with Keema

  1. In a heavy bottom vessel, add water, salt and oil. Once the water starts boiling, add the rice flour. Reduce the flame and cover the lid for a minute.
  2. Then remove from flame and stir the rice flour till you get a crumbly texture. Close the vessel back with the lid.
  3. Wait for the flour to cool down a bit about 20 minutes. Then with wet hands work on the flour and combine it well till you get a smooth dough like roti dough.
  4. Make small balls like roti. Dust it with dry rice flour and roll out rotis. To get even size I have used a lid of vessel. Cut the excess dough and make all the rotis and stack them. They don't stick. Fry them on a pan with little oil on bot

My Tip:

TIP: In case you feel the dough is too dry add little hot water accordingly. If the dough has become very sticky add some dry flour. So it really depends on the kind of rice flour you are using.

A variation to this recpe. Add half a cup if grated coconut to the dough n they turn out very yummy to have even without the kheema. You can roll out on a plantain leafe and fried wiith the leafe, which should be removed when the roti is flupped over.
