hey, nice new recipe. You said, make it on pan, can this be not rolled like roti? is it because of rice flour? Just curious to know.

Hey thanks Priya... :)
Well the dough is too soft and sticky hence cannot rolled like roti hence has to be directly made on tava or pan.
Traditionally this dish is made on tava directly. :)
Few people spread it on a moist cloth and then they put it on tava.But it becomes difficutt as the dough is sticky....
