Dibba Rotti ~ Andhra Special Flat bread

Crispy flat bread which is known as Dibba Rotti is Andhra Pradesh special breakfast dish.  Dibba means think and Rotti means bread.  This dish is usually made with Idly batter and chopped onion, green chili and jeera. Its takes some time to cook, because this is thick bread which will be cooked on medium to low flame. As it is thick it takes quite some time to cook. Because we will be cooking this bread till golden brown and crisp.  This Crispy flat bread is usually served with any pickles or with chutneys. My son named this recipe as Indian Pizza :)

Dibba rotti  goes for my next post for BM 49, week-3 under the theme Indian Bread Basket.  Here goes the recipe...


We Need:

Idly batter  1 cup
Salt to taste
Jeera / Cumin seeds 1/2 spoon
Chopped Onion 2 spoons
Chopped Cilantro 2 spoons
Chopped Green chili 1/4 spoon


Add all the ingredients except oil in idly batter and mix well.
Heat non stick or regular dosa pan.
Add  2 to 3 spoons of oil, and add good amount  of mixed batter.
Spread around as dosa.
Cover with lid and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes  on medium flame.

Now flip the rotti and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes till nice and crisp.
