My background is Pakistani and so I grew up with a lot of rotis to say the least. I used to buy the Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas as a roti substitute when I first became gluten free which worked well for a number of months (thank you for that Food For Life!). However, like other gluten free foods I was purchasing, I quickly realized that I could make it myself for a fraction of the cost.
Here is my rice roti recipe. Feel free to use it as a base and add whatever else you please. Sometimes I add onions, cilantro and spices if I’m feeling fancy (makes a dosa type roti).
Makes 4 medium sized rotis
1 cup brown rice flower
1.5 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat oil in frying pan over medium eat. Mix brown rice flour, salt (if using)and water into bowl until smooth (no clumps). Pour a thin layer of batter onto hot frying pan (I usually use a ladle for this). Let cook for 5 minutes (or until it starts to brown), flip and then cook for another 5 minutes (or until it starts to brown).
