This recipe will serve 4 People. Take two cups of plain flour, salt, water and 1 cup of grated or desiccated coconut. Slice the green part of the leek. If you like to add a spicy twist to that add some finely chopped green chillies in to the leeks.
Add the coconut, salt, in to the flour with water. I used my mixer. You can hand knead or or use the food processor too. Which ever the way to make a good roti you need to knead it until its not sticking on to your fingers.,
When you knead add water slowly. Incase if you find its a bit sticky add more flour or if it is hard add a bit more water. (Simple as that)
After add the leeks. This step you need to hand knead. If you use the machine it will crush the leeks and taste will be completely different.
After cut the dough in to four equal parts. Make balls out from that. Flatten each ball to make a roti.
Cook on both sides until golden brown. Serve hot with a curry or as it is.
