Rice roti (Alayle pita rotti)

The process of cooking the flour in hot water is called Alayle. Flour is called as Peet. This special kind of roti is my all time favorite breakfast. This is a bit difficult to make initially but with practice, it can be easily mastered. Aayi’s rottis come out perfectly soft and circular. I have practiced it a lot, though initially it was a failure, I could master it after few days.

This is usually served for breakfast at my home with different sides like Vayngana nonche, Masoori bhaji, Almbe ambat, losney chutney, Engayi etc. Whatever is the side dish, these rotis make a heavenly and filling breakfast.

2 cups rice flour
