In the next few months I will be posting a couple of rice flour recipes a week. Rice, for me, is something that is gentle on the stomach and is far more digestable than other grains, while being, best of all, gluten free. For those who love chapati's but can't stand the gluten here is one great recipe.
2 cups rice flour
1 cup grated coconut
1 big onion chopped fine
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh green coriander/ hara dhaniya
1/4 " fresh ginger, chopped very fine
1/2 tsp Salt
A pinch of asafoetida/ hing
1 tsp cumin powder/jeera
6 tsps vegetable oil
Mix all the ingredients together and make a soft dough by adding water bit by bit or beaten yogurt /curds. If you are using commercially made yogurt make it a bit thinner by adding water.
Divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
Heat a non stick frying pan on a medium fire. Pour a little oil into the pan. Now press out one portion of the dough into a round shape with your fingers on the pan itself. Tt circle be about a 1/4 " thick.
Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Serve hot with ghee , butter, chutney or tomato sauce.
Makes 6 rotis.
