  • 300 g All-purpose flour

  • 1/2 Red onion Chopped

  • On a separate plate and add 2 tbsp of oil then place the roti on top of the plate and with your palm and fingertips, flatten the dough until stretched and round-shaped
  • Heat a pan on medium heat, do not add oil, place the roti on the pan and cook until one side is cooked, then flip the other side and let it cook through (repeat with the rest of the coconut roti)
    It is normal to have a few burnt bits on the roti
