This unleavened flatbread is a staple bread in Sri Lanka, and is also a street food. The soft and delicious coconut flavored roti with a bite of spicy green chili here and there gives an ultimate experience and makes the morning great. Once you start great, the entire day will be great. Try this for breakfast and you’ll see the change.
Flour - All purpose flour is used to make this roti. Substituting with whole wheat gives a slightly different flavor and texture.
Salt - gives flavor.
Water - to knead the dough.
Onions - I have used red onions. This adds to the textural bite as well as flavor of the rotis.
Oil - to cook the rotis. This adds to the softness too.
What to serve with Pol Roti?
This can be served with chilli sambal or Lunumiris. I love to have these as such for a quick snack too. Pol sambol is great to serve with this roti. This can also be served with any curries too.
Is this roti vegan?
Yes, this roti is vegan. If the vegan version is not preferred, the roti can also be cooked in butter.
Is this roti spicy?
This roti is not very spicy. I would say low to medium. The amount of green chilies can be adjusted as per heat preference. Some red chili flakes may also be added to amp up the heat.
Add the flour, coconut, salt, onions, and green chilies to a bowl.
