There are two types of flour used for making these flat breads(orotti), rice and wheat flour. In this recipe, i've used wheat flour. These are thicker than chappathis or rotis. Usually orotti is cooked on an iron griddle, which gives it the unique taste, which cannot be got while cooking on a non stick pan.
1) If hot water is not used for mixing dough, orottis will be a little hard.
2) Cook on a low flame or orrotis will not be cooked from inside as it is quite thick.
1) Mix wheat flour and salt.
2) Add boiling hot water and mix with a wooden spoon to mix well.
3) After it cools down a bit, add onion and coconut.
4) Knead to a soft and smooth dough. The dough would be a little loose (more loose than chapathy dough).
5) Heat a pan, brush with a little ghee.
6) With wet hands, take some dough and flatten on tawa.Be careful not to burn your hands. Reduce flame while flattening & cooking dough.
7) When one side is cooked, flip over the orotti & cook the other side.
8) Remove and brush little ghee on both sides.
Serve with a gravied curry.
