Rice Flour Onion Rotti

Rice Flour 1 Cup
Onion 1 Small
Whole Red Chiles 1 – 2
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tsp
Method of preparation:

Grind onion, broken red chiles and salt into coarse paste adding little water.
Bring to boil around a cup of water, add the ground onion paste.
Remove the pot from heat and stir in the rice flour.
Keep covered and let the mixture cool down so it is warm enough to handle.

Carefully spread the mixture with wet fingers into somewhat thick roti.
Make a hole in the middle of the roti and pour few drops of oil inside the hole and around the roti.
Cook covered on low flame for around 5 minutes and remove the lid.
Simmer and let the rice flour onion rotti crisp up for around 5 minutes on both sides.
Remove the rice flour onion rotti onto a plate and repeat the same with remaining portion of the mixture.
Serve rice flour onion rotti with garlic pickle or with any pickle of your choice.
