Rice flour combined with cooked left-over rice can be used in many surprising and novel ways. I have used this combination to prepared delicious rotis. To perk up their flavour garlic, ginger and green chillies are added. Curds are added to make the rotis soft. This is a good way to make use of left-over rice. Serve these hot with a spicy pickle.
This unleavened maize and wheat flour bread is typical of Rajasthan. As the name suggests, tikkar is a dry, chewy bread. This texture is achieved by making a stiff dough. I have used oil to cook these rotis to make them crisper, but traditionally they are cooked without using any oil. Oil or ghee is smeared over the roti just before serving. This rustic bread complements all kinds of spicy pickles.
