Happiness comes in rice form; a bowl of rice or rice roti
One can travel all across the 7 seas and the entire globe finding new foods to eat but the truth remains, there’s no escaping rice! Hail rice ?? In grain form or even roti, rice is life. And here’s a very simple recipe using 3 ingredients: rice roti off course. And the best bit is that it’s gluten free my hungries!!
Roti, also known as chapati, is an unleavened bread, staple food prepared with whole wheat flour and water, eaten daily, by millions of south East Asians around the world.
rice roti is pretty much exactly the same thing, only that its made fom grounded rice flour, which is absolutely perfect for gluten free diets. So essentially this is the best alternative to bread and its super tasty, super quick and easy to prepare.
I am so proud I can make this whenever I like because rolling is really easy also. Have a go at this fresh take on a simple and authentic roti best served with meat or beef curry.
