Rice Flour Roti
Sent in by bharathi9986, thanks

2-cups rice flour
6-green chillies, chopped
Salt to taste
2-bunches Methi Leaves, chopped, only leaves to be cut (fenugreek leaves)
1/2-cup crushed coconut

In a bowl, add 2 cups of rice flour, chopped Methi leaves, salt, crushed coconut, chopped green chillies
Mix in some water to make dough
Grease a pan and your hands well
Take a ball of dough and pat it into a roti on the pan.
In tawa*, add 2 or 3 tablespoons of oil
Like dosa (rice pancakes), add a little oil over it and close the lid for few minutes
Cook well on both sides turning the roti once.
Then take out the Roti from the tawa put it on a plate, put on some Ghee** to taste

*A tawa is a round, thick iron griddle, it is also slightly concave in the center. It is used when very high temperatures are needed and is mostly used for Indian unleavened breads like chappati or rotis
**Ghee (clarified butter) may be readily available off the shelf in Indian stores. However, it is important that it be fresh stock.
