Rava Rotti/Semolina Pan Cake

Our morning today was with Rava Rotti. It is very popular in Dakshina Kannada/South Karnataka.
An ideal breakfast to feast upon, without any pre-soaking of rice and fermentation of batter.
Follow my recipe for the yummy rava rotti.

Ingredients:
Rawa medium size- 1 cup
Wheat flour- 1/4 cup
Chickpea flour- 1 tbsp
Fresh grated Coconut- 1/2 cup
Onion-1 finely chopped
Yogurt-1 tbsp
Green chillies-3 finely chopped.
Curry Leaves-2 sprigs finely chopped
Salt to taste
Water-1 cup or as required
Banana leaves (optional)

Recipe:
In a bowl mix all ingredients and let it rest for a while.
Check for the consistency.
Batter should be having consistency as in the figure below. If you feel the batter which had been resting is bit thick add water little more and bring it to desired consistency as below.
Now heat a flat pan, spread the batter on a banana leaf if you have and then invert it on hot tawa with the help of banana leaf.
But due to non-availability of banana leaves I spread the batter on hot tawa directly.
Cover the tawa lid and roast on medium heat. Now smear oil on rotti/pan cake and flip it.
Now roast the other side on hot tawa.
Serve hot with yogurt and pickle or any chutney of your choice.
Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
