Famous Andhra Dibba Rotti / Minapa Roti Recipe by Veena Theagarajan

I came across this dish during one of my get-to-gather with my friends. This sounded similar to Idli dosa but the taste was totally different. Even though it is thick, it was very crispy. This is perfect for brunch/ breakfast. This can be served with any spicy chutney / pickle. This does require more oil than normal dosa. The batter should be little coarse for this roti. Do try out this and provide feedback
