TANDOOL OR RICE ROTI....

Tandool bhakri or Rice roti is a very good roti in place of wheat roti for chicken or fish curries.
If you go to a malwani or goan restaurant you will find it on the menu, my son always prefers to take this rice roti at restaurants.
This was my first try at making a rice roti my the following method explain in this post and it did come out well , I made a rice roti a couple of years back but the method was different, I made it just like we do a wheat flour chapatti or roti.But I found that when done in the way I have done it in this recipe it turns out to be soft and succulent



INGREDIENTS

1 cup rice flour
1 cup water
1 tsp ghee
Salt to taste


METHOD

Boil one cup water
Add ghee and salt
Add the rice flour and stir
It will become dry, keep a lid and let it cook for about 2 mins
Take this mixture on a place and let it cool a little
Knead as you would knead the wheat flour dough, you can apply a little oil on your palms as the dough will be hot.
Roll these as you would for any other roti. Don’t use flour for dusting.
Cook them on a hot tawa.
Serve with some hot and spicy chicken or fish curry.
I had served it with a potato bhaji , but after eating it I felt that it suits best with non vegetarian gravies.

this is known as akki rotti in kannada and goes very well with gojjus/ chutneys especially the ones made in north karnataka with a lot of groundnuts and chillies.

these rotis aren't just yummy but also very light :)

I am learning something new everyday from each blog. I never knew rice rotti existed. Goa has version, as lakshmi said kannidiga's have a version and in kerala we call it oratti(but coconut is added) and pathiri( roti is drenched in coconut milk)in Kerala. It is a small world after all. i love your blog. I hope I could get the mahek from mahek's blog too.

Hi, this looks somewhat like a tortilla, only made of rice. Am I right to think that it is a sort of bread fried or baked in a pan? If so, then I am going to try this as I am gluten intolerant and miss my flour tortillas. Can you explain to me what it means when you say cook them on a hot tawa?

I do not even know where Goa is, so I have never heard of goan cooking. Thank you for your blog.

nice...the tandool bhakri looks and tastes nice. i tried it with pithla.The method to get the dough looks pretty similar to the "ukad" in ukadiche modak....maybe you could also take a shot adding some milk too...it works for the modak, might suit pretty well for the bhakri too.
