Kori Rotti is a Mangalorean speciality. Kori means chicken, and rottis, in this case, are not the traditional chapattis or rotis. They are a special kind of bread, which are made of rice paste and then dried, so quite hard and crispy and are made into sheets that are then broken into pieces. These rottis, when soaked by the chicken curry, absorb it and turn quite soft. A real taste and texture sensation!
This North Karnataka special chutney can be eaten with joladarotti or chapati.
This is a very authentic bengali dessert that is popular everywhere in the country, typically made during any religious or auspicious occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, or annyaprasan.
