Blend cumin seeds, mint, cilantro, green chillies, curry leaves, shredded coconut to a coarse paste without using water.
In a bowl add rice flour, coarse paste, onion, salt, dal, hot water to form a dough ball. Make sure that you add less water than it is needed because the onion release lot of moisture from them once you rest the dough. keep the dough uncovered. Make dumplings out of the mixture and set aside.
For this roti peparation you need not rest the dough. Immediately grease the polythene sheets on which we are going to roll the rotis even grease the aluminum foil to transfer the rolled roti. And heat up the tawa.
Start spreading the roti on the polythene sheet till you get 7 inch diameter circle. Tranfer this onto the greased aluminum foil and invert it onto the hot griddle and cook till golden in color on both the sides.
