  • Add salt, cumin seeds, coconut (if using) ,coriander leaves and green chili.
  • Add warm water little by little to make a smooth dough. Do not add more water then it will become a batter.


  • Divide the dough into big lemon sized equal balls.
  • In a butter paper or banana leaf , grease with few drops of oil and place one ball of dough .
  • Pat it with greased fingers into a medium thin adai. Put a hole in the center.
  • While patting the dough shouldn’t get cracks.


  • Heat a tawa and slowly place the butter paper on the tawa and take the wrapper out carefully.
  • Cook on both sides using coconut oil and serve immediately.
  1. Always use warm water for kneading the dough.
  2. Traditional karnataka people add dill leaves or avarakelu in the dough.
  3. Always ensure the pan in medium flame. Else the rotis will either not get cooked or will be too hard.
  4. You can add grated carrots to the dough to make it bit healthy.
  5. If you feel green chillies are too hot you can add red chili powder.
