Put 1 cup of grated coconut in a mixing bowl
Add 2 cups self-raising flour
Add a pinch of salt
Mix this together well
Using you hands, keep mixing as you add the water or milk a couple of tablespoonsful at a time.
Keep mixing and adding water until you get a ball of dough that easily comes away from the sides of the bowl.
Dust the surface on which you are going to roll out your dough with flour
Roll out the whole ball of dough till it is about 1 centimeter thick
Using an egg ring, or cookie cutter, or glass press down firmly into the dough to cut out circles
Heat a skillet or frying pan without oil till it feels hot when you hold your hand over it.
Place the circles of dough on the skillet or frypan. Don't crowd them, give them room to breath and expand
Let the roti circles puff up slightly and brown on one side. This may take a minute or two. The roti should be able to be easily moved around the skillet with a spatula or spoon.
Now turn them over and brown them on the other side for a couple of minutes also. They won't brown evenly, but in patches. See the picture for what you are aiming for. It doesn't matter if some parts are darker than the others. You can flip them over once to check how they are going.
As each batch is made, put them on a plate or in a dish
Serve them warm
