This is a very traditional rotti made with rice flour. Rice flour is mixed with hot water along with soaked moong dal, chopped onion and spices. The freshly prepared dough is spread on flat pan into thick rotti and fried till its golden brown on both sides.

Moong Dal 4 Tbsps
Cumin Seeds 1/8 tsp
Red Chilli Flakes 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 1 Tbsp

Method of preparation:

Peel and finely chop the onion.

Soak moong dal in a cup of water for around 2 hours.
Bring to boil half a cup of water, add salt and red chilli flakes and remove from heat.

In a mixing bowl, mix together rice flour, soaked moong dal, onion, cumin seeds and salt(if necessary) into smooth dough using the hot water we just boiled. Add little more water or rice flour if necessary.
Divide the dough into two portions.

Heat a flat pan on medium heat.
When pan gets little warm, place the dough on the flat pan.
Press the dough and spread it with help of wet fingers into thick roti (around 5 inch diameter).
Pour a tsp of oil on top of the roti.
