(Sri Lankan Flat Bread with fresh grated or desiccated coconut recipe)
|Ingredients: Serves 6-8|
2 cups roti flour, self-raising flour or rice flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon salt
scant 1 cup water
ghee or oil for cooking
Mix flour, coconut and salt in a mixing bowl. Add enough water to form a soft dough. Knead dough until it forms a ball and does not stick to sides of the bowl. Rest dough for approximately 30 minutes. Shape dough into balls, approximately the size of a golf ball. Pat each one out to a circle the size of a saucer. Cook on a hot griddle or in a heavy frying pan very lightly greased with ghee or oil. Serve hot.
