Roti or flatbreads are popular among Sri Lankans. While some of these recipes are Sri Lankan, other roti recipes are Indian inspired. Instead of baked bread, a flatbread made out of flour makes it a perfect meal for Sri Lankans other than rice and curry. This is why I thought of having a list of the best roti recipes that I have shared from time to time in this blog. Some of these recipes were shared at the time I started this food blog somewhere before 2013. Therefore, the photo quality is different. 🙂 But, I hope you will find these roti recipes to give you some ideas for your next dinner or breakfast.
These Roti recipes can be easily adapted with Sri Lankan taste and well matching with some other curries.
1. Roti Canai
I first tasted Roti Canai during our visit to Malacca in Malaysia and thought of trying it at home.I should say it is a Malaysian version of Roti prata. (Parata). Check the recipe for Roti Canai
2. Sri Lankan Pol Roti
Pol roti or flatbread made mixing coconut with flour is one of the best Sri Lankan foods to try. Check the pol roti recipe here.
3. Tofu Roti
This is a recipe developed by me by adding tofu to our Sri Lankan pol roti. Try it. It is packed with protein and a good way to hide tofu when you cook for your children. 🙂 Check tofu roti recipe.
4. Roomali Roti (Rumali Roti)
Roomali Roti or Rumali Roti is another Indian recipe that I have tried before. The roti needs to be thin and soft. Check the recipe for Roomali roti.
5. Roti Jala
I first tasted Roti jala in Singapore and it is easy to cook using a mix similar to pancakes. With a spicy curry, roti jala is a perfect meal even for Sri Lankans. Check Roti Jala recipe.
6. Multigrain roti
Another recipe is based on Sri Lankan Pol roti. I made it more healthy by adding different flour instead of plain flour. This roti is better when you want to add more flavours of different flour types together with its nutrient values. Check Multigrain roti recipe.
Chapathi is Indian food, but it is popular in Sri Lanka too. Not only in Sri Lanka, chapathi is popular around the world with few variations. Check this chapathi recipe.
