Sel Roti | Crispy Fried Sweet Bread From Sikkim
Sel Roti is a crispy snack from the Indian state of Sikkim that is popularly made during the Tihar Festival. This mildly sweet roti is served with spicy curry.
Servings: 12 Rotis
- 1 cup Raw rice
- ¼ cup Sugar
- ¼ cup Ghee
- ½ teaspoon Cardamom powder
- ⅛th teaspoon Powdered clove
- for deep frying Oil
Wash and soak the rice overnight and the next day drains the water.
In a blender, add the drained rice, ghee, cardamom powder, and sugar and blend it to a smooth paste. Add water little by little so that you get a thick batter.
Remove the batter to a bowl and using a ladle whip it up for a while, so it becomes light and fluffy.
Heat oil in a wide pan. Using a ladle, pour the batter in a circle shape into the hot oil. Let it cook on one side and then flip it to the other side using a bamboo stick (or a chopstick).
Make sure that you cook these on low flame to get evenly browned and crispy texture.
Once it is cooked all the way around, drain it on a paper towel-lined dish.
Store Sel Roti in an airtight container once they cool down completely.
