Tofu Roti - A New Face to Sri Lankan Pol Roti

Tofu Roti - A New Face to Sri Lankan Pol Roti
Tofu Roti - A New Face to Sri Lankan Pol Roti

Tofu is a soy product which is often used as an alternative for meat specially by vegetarians. However considering the benefits of tofu, it is not only a favourite vegetarian food, but it is heavily consumed by most of the non-vegetarians too.

I tried tofu in different recipes, specially to get some Sri Lankan taste. Once I tried tofu in a curry and another time I used tofu in a salad. However, with its soft texture, finally I decided to try a recipe hiding tofu inside the ingredients. This tofu roti is a result of it.

Naan Bread on the stove top

Naan Bread on the stove top

Naan is an Indian bread recipe which we love to eat. I usually cook this at home, but couldn’t share the recipe here. The taste is bit different from roti and well goes with any spicy gravy. Found that Naan is traditionally cooked in a clay oven called tandoor. I adapted this recipe from Chef Sanjay Thumma and in his video recipe, he explains how to cook it in an oven or even on stove top.

Pol Roti is one of traditional food from Sri Lanka. It is a kind of roti cooked with fresh coconut (pol).& all-purpose flour.We eat Pol roti mostly as our breakfast.But it is good for dinner too.
In Sri Lanka we eat with Sri Lankan Chili paste(lunu miris) or any spicy curry.
Adding some green chili & onion gives extra taste for it.

Pol Roti
Here is my recipe

Ingredients (4 nos)

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup fresh grated coconut
1 onion sliced
1-2 green chili sliced
1 sprig of curry leaves sliced
2 tbspn butter
Salt to taste (about ½ tspn)
Water (about ½ cup)


Slice onion, green chili & curry leaf.

In a bowl, mix onion, green chilly, curry leaf with flour, butter & grated coconut.
Add some salt too

After mixing the ingredients, gradually add water & make this into a dough.

Make small balls from the dough.

How to make Sri Lankan Pol Roti

Spread some flour on a chopping board or a plate, and flatten this small ball of dough to a round flat shape (Roti shape).You can use a cutter if you want it in a nice round shape.

Heat a flat pan.
Then place this flatten roti on it.

Cook it for few minutes turning both sides until both sides get slightly roasted.
No need of adding oil to the pan as we have mixed butter to the dough.

It is ready to serve once the both sides get slightly roasted & brown.
Continue the same procedure with remaining dough.

Sandwich Kebabs & using left over bread

This is just another quick & easy idea for tea time. I always don’t like wasting food, but need to think some way to use left over food. Most of the time I have few slices of bread left from breakfast. If I don’t have time to prepare another food, I convert it to bread crumbs. So easy. Just place the slices on a plate & put inside fridge without covering. It will be dried out within few days. Then I need to grind it to coarse bread crumbs. Good to cover any deep fry. 

Here is another easy idea. I had few bread slices left from the breakfast.
Then used some spread in it.( Actually I used jam & butter)
Then I cut all the sandwiches into small triangles & squares.
After that I arranged those in skewers alternatively with some fresh grapes.

Just another way to enjoy sandwiches.

Sandwiches for kids

I am very new for blog writing,but I can see my face book page is growing.It is not with only  increasing fan base,but my page is active with comments from others.I am so glad to have such active members around me.

My page is going to reach it's 500 fan count soon.Therefore I thought of doing something new for my fans in face book page.This is the result of it.Until recent,I always posted for adults.But today I thought I want to post food for kids too.

This is my first attempt & this is for all of you moms.....

What do you think of this sandwich?Kid will love it & eat it?
I used some carrots & grapes to decorate.

This is my attempt to make a flower using carrot,Grape & sweet corn seeds.

How about making a fish?

Oh dont laugh.This is my kitten.

Doesnt this look like a rat?Please see its mouth with two teeth.

Oh a naughty boy with few hair....

How about this?

mmm I used cookie cutters to cut to this shape.But in this method I can see a bit of wastage of bread.

This is my attempt to make a dog.

What do you think about this?I prepared  this thinking of a shark.Do you feel like that?

Hope you will prepare sandwiches for your kid & decorate nicely.Enjoy!!
