Preparation ::

  1. Sieve maida and add semolina, salt, water to knead the dough. Add hot oil to the dough and knead again for few minutes this is the very important step in making of biscuit rotti. The dough should be very very stiff which makes rotti more crispier.
  2. Prepare the filling and you need to roast few ingredients for that. Heat a non stick pan in a medium flame and add oil. Add mustard seeds, once it crackle add finely chopped curry leaves, finely chopped green chillies and semolina.
  3. Roast semolina for few seconds in low flame. Be careful as semolina gets burnt very soon. Add grated coconut and saute for few seconds.
  4. Also add sambhar powder, asafoetida paste, chopped coriander leaves, salt and sugar one by one and keep sauting. When it is roasted properly remove from the flame and keep aside.
  5. Now you have to prepare the rotti or pastries. Take a lemon size dough into hand and roll using rolling pin. The size you roll first should be little bigger than puri size, take a spoon of filling and keep it in between.
  6. Close the filling by bringing all the edges to the center. You can touch water into your fingers and stick them properly. Your filling should not be overfilled. There should be some space left inside otherwise your rotti will not puff.
  7. Now gently roll the stuffed ball to puri size rotti and deep fry them one by one using oil.
  8. Keep beating gently after leaving the pastry into oil until it puff.  Flip them to fry evenly on all the sides. When it is crisp and golden remove from the heat and serve warm with cup of chai or coffee.

Note :

1.You can store the remaining filling in refrigerator for 10-15 days.
2. You can also store biscuit rotti upto 20 days in an air tight container for that you shouldn't add grated coconut to the filling.
