In Sri Lankan cuisine,Pol Roti (Coconut Roti) plays an important role as an easy breakfast recipe. Even this is good for dinner. Earlier I shared the traditional Sri Lankan recipe for pol roti with step by step pictures. Please check that post for the step by step photos on how to make Sri Lankan Pol roti.

Naan is an Indian bread recipe which we love to eat. I usually cook this at home, but couldn’t share the recipe here. The taste is bit different from roti and well goes with any spicy gravy. Found that Naan is traditionally cooked in a clay oven called tandoor. I adapted this recipe from Chef Sanjay Thumma and in his video recipe, he explains how to cook it in an oven or even on stove top.

Pol Roti is one of traditional food from Sri Lanka. It is a kind of roti cooked with fresh coconut (pol).& all-purpose flour.We eat Pol roti mostly as our breakfast.But it is good for dinner too.
In Sri Lanka we eat with Sri Lankan Chili paste(lunu miris) or any spicy curry.
Ingredients (4 nos)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup fresh grated coconut
1 onion sliced
1-2 green chili sliced
1 sprig of curry leaves sliced
2 tbspn butter
Salt to taste (about ½ tspn)
Water (about ½ cup)
In a bowl, mix onion, green chilly, curry leaf with flour, butter & grated coconut.
Add some salt too
Spread some flour on a chopping board or a plate, and flatten this small ball of dough to a round flat shape (Roti shape).You can use a cutter if you want it in a nice round shape.
Heat a flat pan.
Cook it for few minutes turning both sides until both sides get slightly roasted.
It is ready to serve once the both sides get slightly roasted & brown.
Serve with chili paste (Sri Lankan Lunu Miris) or any spicy curry.

This is just another quick & easy idea for tea time. I always don’t like wasting food, but need to think some way to use left over food. Most of the time I have few slices of bread left from breakfast. If I don’t have time to prepare another food, I convert it to bread crumbs. So easy. Just place the slices on a plate & put inside fridge without covering. It will be dried out within few days. Then I need to grind it to coarse bread crumbs. Good to cover any deep fry.
Here is another easy idea. I had few bread slices left from the breakfast.
Then used some spread in it.( Actually I used jam & butter)
Then I cut all the sandwiches into small triangles & squares.
After that I arranged those in skewers alternatively with some fresh grapes.
Just another way to enjoy sandwiches.

I used some carrots & grapes to decorate.
This is my attempt to make a flower using carrot,Grape & sweet corn seeds.
How about making a fish?

mmm I used cookie cutters to cut to this shape.But in this method I can see a bit of wastage of bread.
This is my attempt to make a dog.
What do you think about this?I prepared this thinking of a shark.Do you feel like that?
Hope you will prepare sandwiches for your kid & decorate nicely.Enjoy!!
