Hi MT, I want to be a Kannadiga too! Looking at your past 3-4 posts, I haven't been able to check blogs lately and I have missed so much here!! Everything looks wonderful, the saagu and the gojju with all those yummy chiles, the seedai and now this rice roti... what a fabulous assortment! And your photos, MT... really spectacular! You've always had lovely photos, but these are especially bright and colorful. Did you get a new camera, or do you have a new secret for photography? :)

Thanks for sharing all these. Definitely going to try one or all *soon*!

Rice Roti with the Gojju looks great. I am afraid to make them thinking it will fall apart.

MT, tried to make this last weekend, but for some reason they came out very hard, I think I did not coat with enough oil.Will try it again

Hi Sreelu,
While cooking sprinkle some water, this helps the roti to keep soft. Thanks for visiting
