RICE ROTI WITH GREEN PEAS MASALA

Roti and Grean Peas masala is a special breakfast recipe which i have seen only in my place Thrissur. This spicy curry goes well with appam and Puttu too.

Note : I Pressure cook the kaldala directly in 2nd and 3rd extract of coconut milk. It will appear as curdled when you open the pressure cooker. Let it boil for few minutes and then add 1st extract. :)


ROTI
Ingredients :

Roasted Rice Flour -2 cups
Grated coconut -1 cup
Shallots – 5, chopped
Jeera – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste

Method :

1. Heat 2cups of water. When it boils, remove it from heat and add chopped shallots, grated coconut, jeera and salt in a vessel.

2. Add the rice flour into same vessel and combine well with a spoon.. Knead it to a fine dough using hand without adding water.(Note:-This kneading part has to be done before the flour is completely cooled.)

3. Knead well with both hands. Dont add more water or rice powder. If needed wet hands. If the water content in dough is more and starts to stick in your hands, add coconut oil in both hands and start making small balls as we do for chappathis..

4. Press the balls in between Palms. As i have one round mould with me, i use that to make exact shape. You can make it big with your palms. cut the edges and make them in perfect shape.

5. Keep thava on medium flame. When thava is hot place rotti on it. Knead well with both hands. Dont add more water or rice powder. If needed wet hands. If the water content in dough is more and starts to stick in your hands, add coconut oil in both hands and start making small balls as we do for chappathis..

6. Place thawa on medium flame. When it becomes hot, place roti on it and allow both sides to be crispy. Turn to other side and allow it to be crispy. Serve hot with Peas masala / potato masala curry / egg curry.

2. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Now add  onions and saute well till its translucent. Add green chillies, garlic, ginger and curry leaves. Saute for another 2minutes and then add chilli powder and coriander powder. Fry it till you get a nice aroma and add the drained grean Peas. Saute well for 3-4minutes and add salt, Turmeric powder and enough water to pressure cook it. Turn off the flame after 2whistles.

3. When pressure releases, add 2nd and 3rd extract of coconut milk and allow it to boil till the gravy reduces to half(level of gravy should be lesser than grean peas in the pressure cooker). Now add 1st extract of coconut milk and allow to boil for 1minute. Turn off the flame and Serve hot with Puttu / Rice Roti / appam / Parotta / chappathis.

  21. I know they would be delicious. :)
    Recently one friend mentioned making the rottis same way. I wondered why should the water be boiled and the flour added afterwards?
    We add cold water to the riceflour and make the dough and it seems lot easier and have seen lot of folks in B'lore doing the same.
    Do you think they would be different tastewise? I will give a try your way.
