This is a quick and simple snack or meal for any time of the day or night.
You can use your imagination to parcel spicy or savoury fillings.
From the ships stores
2 cups all-purpose or wholemeal flour
1 cup grated fresh coconut (Sinhala name: pol)
1 teaspoon olive oil
A few pinches of salt & Cracked Pepper
Chopped chilli to taste
Chopped onion to taste
Small amount of water – enough only to make a non-sticky dough
Mix all ingredients to make a dough, need for a few minutes
Avoid the temptation to add too much water – the mix will soon absorb and become “doughy”
Rest for 10 minutes
Roll out to approximately the thickness of a chartroom 2B pencil
Use a large glass or similar to “cut out” the roti discs
Cook now or freeze for later
Shallow fry or grill as you prefer
Enjoy on their own or:
- Spread with strawberry jam
- Honey spread or as a dip
- Pol Sambol
- Curry gravy
- Anything else that takes your fancy.
