Sabsige Soppu Rotti (Fresh Dill Rotti)

Dill rotti is one more quick recipe. Dill or Sabsige soppu is a herb which has a very strong smell. My amma never used this herb in her cooking. So I didn't have any idea as to what to do with this.Once I saw someone making a dish using this herb in a cooking show, I thought of trying something with dill at home. So my father got me this herb and I made rotti just like as we make Akki rotti (I like trying new things). The taste was awesome!! This is how I came up with this recipe.
Dill is very rich in calcium and Iron(Check here for more information and start using dill regularly). This is our favorite rotti. Soon it might become yours too!!
(I remember one of our good friends telling that he doesn't like dill but he ate this rotti happily:-) So its worth trying for all lovers/ non lovers of dill!!)


Ingredients:
  • Sabsige soppu/Fresh dill- 1/2 a bunch
  • Rice flour- 1 1/2 cups
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- To fry
(Smell of dill is very dominating, So it doesn't make a difference if you add onions,coriander leaves or not. Still you can add if you like it. You can also add capsicum, carrot or any other vegetable of your choice to make it more healthy)

Procedure:

Wash dill thoroughly. Discard the stem of the herb and then chop the leaves finely. Now take the chopped dill, rice flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Add water in small quantities. Mix it well. The dough consistency should be as shown in the picture.


Now divide the dough into small balls(5-6). Then take a zip loc to make the rotti.( if you don't have a zip loc then you can also use a banana leaf / wet cloth. Another option is to use milk or oil packets:-)). I love making rotti on a banana leaf (lucky , those who have that option). Apply little oil on the zip loc so that the dough doesn't stick to it.


Start spreading the dough without any gaps in between (don't make very big/ thin rottis. It will be difficult to transfer to the tawa)


Transfer this rotti carefully on a heated tawa. Fry each side for about 2-3 minutes. Add oil/ butter while frying (optional).


Sabsige Soppu Rotti is ready!! Serve it hot with any chutney of your choice or just serve it with little butter on top. Above measurement is for serving two people.
