Very nice recipe . It's delicious


I am not a professional cook. But I have tried several recipes for porotta. This one is found to be the best. It is found to be better than the Porottas served in expensive hotels, let alone thattukadas. I used olive oil in place of oil.


Tried it but I think one egg will do instead of 2




If you really want to make nice porotta...Watch the way they make it when you visit Thattukada next time.. The perfection depents on the way you make it..and ofcourse you will have to use lot of oil while preparing the mix...


Its good..the recipe is quite useful.


Very Nice, and Thanks for Recipe, L Raj


Pretty good. Came out a bit hard and not in layers initially. But then with trials and a lot of oil it started coming out decently


I was always wondering to make porotta...thankyou a lot

Bread Easy pizza

We often make pizza in oven, but if we don’t have oven or there is no electricity then it can be made on tawa with utter ease. Pizza prepared on tawa is as delicious as prepared in oven.
