Serves: 12 Time: 20 mins plus extra for rising

Ingredients

  • 240g (2 cups) cake flour, sieved salt, to taste
  • 130g desiccated coconut
  • 60ml (¼ cup) boiling water
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) butter

Instructions

1

In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and coconut with enough boiling water to make a soft, but not sticky, dough.

2

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Divide into 12 pieces and flatten each piece slightly to form a small disc.

3

Place each disc between 2 pieces of wax paper and roll out to form discs about 2mm thick.

4

Heat a heavy-based frying pan to hot.

5

Peel the paper off each roti and fry until light brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove and keep warm.

6

Serve with creamy prawns.
