Coconut chutney


Adding fresh coconut makes roti soft and tasty too. You can add that according to your taste or omit it.

Let the flame be high for the first minute so that the tava heats fast. If the flame is too low from the beginning, the roti may become hard.

If you like your rotti with a crisp bottom, reduce flame after the first minute and cook for 2-3 minutes on low flame.

Lift the lid and check how much it is done. Take care not to let the rotti burn.
