Biyappu rottelu - Rice flour roti

This is one the those recipes from my husband's side of the family. Obviously he loves it, so I had to get the recipe from my sis-in-law. All the ingredients together with the crunch of peanuts tastes really good. It is a simple, quick to make dinner.


1. Rice flour - 1.5 cups
2. Onions - 1 - small
3. Green chillies - 2-4
4. Cilantro 4-6 sprigs
5. Peanuts - 1/4 cup
6. Salt - to taste
7. Water to make the dough


Grid the green chillies and cilantro with salt. Pulse the peanuts with it. 
Chop the onions. Mix all the ingredients along with flour adding water little by little until it makes a chappathi like dough. Here comes the tricky part, unlike chappathi dough, there is not much binding for rice flour so it cannot be rolled using a pin. You have to use a plastic sheet like may be a zip-loc bag, or wax paper. Apply oil to it and place a small round of dough on it. Pat it with fingers and make a roti as thin as you can go. Then transfer that onto the griddle/tawa. Roast both sides with oil. 

Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
