Rontas ..a kerala delicacy

Ronta's is just like puri but instead of wheat flour we use rice flour.Its kerala delicacy which i have learnt from my kerala friend Geetha Venkites.So thought of trying this was yum .In actual recipe she had used only rice flour but just to make it more interesting i have used little curry leaves and cumin which gives very good flavour and aroma .So you can have it plain without any side dish.
   She served dal along with rontas and this how the real rontas are served in kerala i is known as Rontas Dal.

Rice flour-2 cups
Curry leaves-8-10
Salt to taste
Oil for frying 

  • Mix rice flour,curry leaves,cumin and salt.
  • Add enough water to rice flour to prepare soft dough like puri dough.
  • Make lemon sized balls and keep aside.
  • Now take a plastic sheet and take one ball and with the oiled fingers flatten the ball and prepare round thick puri.
  • Heat oil for deep start frying rontas one by one. you no need to fry it till crisp.Because rontas are slightly light is color when it compared to puri and soft too.
  • Serve hot with dal or sambar.
