Chawaran ji Koki

BM # 49  Week 2  Day 3

 For day 3 under Indian breads I have a very interesting bread for you guys. This could be prepared with left over cooked rice. I am sure this must have been a innovation to use the left over rice. The rice could be pulsed, but a potato masher can be used too. The idea is to get soft rice which is slightly mushy.I have used just the basic spices , but one can try with different spices and herbs too.

The Koki is soft and delicious and actually one can just roll it up and eat . You could serve this roti with Sindhi Aaloo or curd or pickle .


Chawaran ji Koki
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup wheat flour
2 green chillies
1/4 tsp dry mango powder
Few coriander leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Using a mixer, add green chilly and rice and pulse till the rice is mushy.
Add flour, oil, salt and dry Mano powder and pulse again.
You could use your dough maker or mix with hands too.
Add coriander leaves and mix again.
Make 4 even sized balls.
Roll just like a chapati, you will not require any flour for dusting.
Cook on a non stick gridle.
When both sides are partially cooked apply ghee and flip over, again apply ghee and roast the other side too.
Serve hot with curd or pickle.
