Ari Orotti

Ari Orotti
Orotti is a simple  and delicious flat bread made with roasted rice flour. Earlier I shared  a recipe for pathiri , the soft and thin flat bread. Orotti is very similar but thicker and crispy. Orotti can be made with rice flour, semolina or wheat flour. Try this with spicy chicken or mutton curry.

Roasted rice flour- 2 cups
Water- 2 cups
salt -to taste
sugar- 1 tsp
coconut oil/butter- 1 1/2 tsp
Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
Grated coconut- 3/4cup
cumin - a pinch

Boil water along with salt and sugar. When it comes to a rolling boil add coconut oil.
Take the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Gradually pour  water little by little and mix with a wooden spoon . Add grated coconut, coconut milk and cumin seeds and mix well.Allow this to cool down and knead into a smooth dough and make small balls

Make lemon shaped balls and flatten on a greased hot tawa. Wet hand with water and press and spread the dough as thin as possible. If you are not comfortable with spreading on hot tawa use plastic cover or butter paper to spread and then place carefully on the tawa/ hot pan. Cook evenly on both side.When one side gets brown spots flip to the other side. Continue with the rest of the dough to make small orotti.Serve with any spicy curry.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!


  1. In my husband's side, they make this thicker and small... and they don't make kneaded dough, just mix to a squishy dough, take some and make... :) Looks so good, the thin ones would go so well with a spicy non-veg curry...

  2. This looks interesting ..Roti with coconut milk ..
