Tangy masala rotti
Rotti means rice flour pancake in Kannada and is a rice-based specialty breakfast from the sate of Karnataka, India. This is also very similar to “Thalipeeth” made in Maharashtra. This is served along with chutney and a dollop of ghee or butter on the side.
Here in this roti I used rice flour, oats, semolina as a variation and it is delicious, crispy and very addictive and tamarind paste add a mild tanginess to the roti.
This roti makes a brilliant breakfast.
