Malabar porota is a well known flat bread and a favorite food for all Keralites for sure.A flaky,crispy roti with lots of layers and flavors of ghee in it is simply delicious.Whenever i visit a Kerala restaurant this one is must in my menu.I’m sure most of us are same in this case.
But now a days lots of health issues are a there considering this delicious roti,as it is made up of white flour,so not good for health and so on.But still it’s my favorite .There is a coin porota now a days that’s small in size and mostly made up of wheat flour.A duplicate version of our porota,that is seen around everywhere for functions and wedding parties.
Yes i know nothing can beat the taste of porota made by all purpose flour,but this one is an alternative for sure.Made by wheat flour and in layers we are using some ghee and flour.It’s crispy and flaky too!
This one you can eat without any guilt as its made of wheat!Over to the recipe
