 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Flour
  • 1 c Desiccated coconut
  • 6 Curry leaves *
  • 2 tb Crushed dried shrimp
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 10 Green chilies, chopped
  • 1 c Warm water (approx., just
  • -enough to moisten the

  • Vegetable oil


1/2 c Green onions or leeks,
-finely chopped
1 ts Crushed, dried red chilies
1/2 c Cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 c Kale, finely chopped
A few curry leaves*
Black pepper
Vegetable oil for frying

Combine the ingredients, mix well, and add enough warm water to make a soft
dough. Knead it until it forms a ball and does not stick to the sides of
the bowl. Shape it into balls about 2 inches in diameter. Then flatten each
ball on a greased plate or cutting surface, spreading it until it is as
thin or thick as desired. Fill with the following:

Filling: In a bowl, combine the green onions or leeks, red chilies,
cabbage, kale, and curry leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat the
oil in a skillet, and saute the vegetables and spices until golden. Place
about 2 tablespoons of the filling on each rotti, fold the rotti in half,
and pinch the edges together to form a packet enclosing the vegetables.
Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet, and fry each rotti until the filling
is warmed through.

*Curry leaves - edible gray-green leaves that resemble bay leaf, used in
flavoring sambols and fish, vegetable, or meat curries. The Sri Lankans use
curry leaves fresh, but they can be used dried if fresh leaves are not
available. The Sinhalese term for the plant is 'karapincha', and if you
can find them fresh, they add great depth and flavor to a dish. They are
not removed before serving, and they are edible. There is no substitute for
curry leaves.
