Rice Flour Roti – Chau’nvran Jee Maani (with garlic variation)

Love these rice flour pancakes. Although the original way of making these rotis is rather hard (you are supposed to make hard dough and spread in on a hot pan with your hand or a circular bowl), making runny dough pancakes takes just a minute or so.

To make Garlic pancakes, simply add some green garlic, salt and red chilli flakes to the rice flour mixture and cook it the same way as above.

It was my first Eid in Pakistan’s largest town – Karachi. Being more of a small town girl, I was keenly looking forward to the festivities that Karachi would offer on Eid.

From where I saw it, city people seem to be very much inclined to spending money and shopping, and less in meeting people and celebrating Eid traditions. Commercialism and capitalism galore!
