- 240g (2 cups) cake flour, sieved salt, to taste
- 130g desiccated coconut
- 60ml (¼ cup) boiling water
- 15ml (1 tbsp) butter
In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and coconut with enough boiling water to make a soft, but not sticky, dough.
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.
Place each disc between 2 pieces of wax paper and roll out to form discs about 2mm thick.
Heat a heavy-based frying pan to hot.
Peel the paper off each roti and fry until light brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove and keep warm.
Serve with creamy prawns.
