WHEAT ADAI/GOTHUMAI ROTIEasy , simple and tasty are the words apt for this wheat flour adai/gothumai roti.In my parents home my father is a full-fledged lover of this dish.He always loves it to be crisp and hot when served.The dough should be a sticky dough consistency.Usually a plastic sheet or a banana leaf is used for patting out the dough.But I have seen my mother and Patti simply patting wheat flour adai directly to a hot pan without using any sheet.I think it comes only from experience.

WHEAT ADAI/GOTHUMAI ROTIKeep a bowl of water near by so that we can dip our hand and then pat the dough to hot pan.It is a great alternative among varies tiffin varieties.It can be had as a sudden snack in the evening.when we have chopped onions before hand the work becomes even more easier.My mother-in laws method is slightly different,she pan fries onion till translucent  with very little oil and then adds it to wheat flour.she adds chilli powder instead of green chillies.
