Sri Lankan Pol Roti

                                                A close resemblance to the chappatti

This is eaten for  breakfast  among the Sri Lankans. And Pol refers to coconut and in this recipe the coconut is finely scrapped before adding to the flour.Roti can be eaten with a fish curry or a variety of other side dishes.The most popular is the lunu miris sambol,a chutney made with red chillies,onions,lemon and salt.
