  1. yummy!!!!!!!!! wish u had lots more photos :)

    1. Hey i jus started this blog :) will add more photos next time i cook :)

  2. I stumbled upon your blog, while looking for manglorean recipes...Its easy to get Rotti in India but hard to find it when you live outside

  3. Unfortunately no blogger on Kori Rotti mentions on how the crispy rice rotti is prepared. I search Google tirelessly and it seems that these rottis come out of thin air or grow on trees. It would be great to have one section on how make these rottis after all there is this word "rotti" in kori rotti so at least for name sake have this covered

    1. Sorry about that. As you can see i mentioned it on this page earlier that the Rotti which we use for this is available in the market or stores. I don't know of anyone who makes it at home. I have seen videos of how they prepare it, apparently they need big place and a very big griddle.

    2. found this video on youtube, i hope this helps.
