How will this taste, you might wonder, without even green chillies or ginger for flavour, but you must taste it to believe how simple rice can transform into a delicious roti when cooked perfectly and topped generously with ghee. The aroma of roasted rice will taunt your taste buds, and make you finish off a whole roti even without any accompaniments. However, the coorgi roti must be had steaming hot, right off the tava.

I generally make rice rotis with rice flour and water... but this recipe was different... and interesting... i wonder what but maybe the cooked rice added to the softness of the rotis... they even puffed up very well... I served them with veg stew... was a great combination...

Soft rice based rotis taste great with any vegetable.
