Ingredients:
Cucumber-1/2 cup grated and squeezed to remove the extra water content
Fine Rava/Fine semolina- 1 cup or just enough to form dough
Pepper powder-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves-1 sprig finely chopped
Cumin seeds-1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to smear

Recipe:
  1. In a bowl take all ingredients except oil.
  2. Mix well very nicely and form a dough out of it.Do not add any water. coat the dough with oil to avoid drying of the dough.
  3. Now let it rest for 30 minutes. Then make lemon sized balls out of it.
  4. Place them on a plastic sheet or aluminium foil or even banana leaf if available
  5. Now flatten it using hands to form rotti.
  6. Transfer it onto a hot griddle.
  7. Cook the rotti on one side.
  8. Once done flip to cook other side and smear oil on the top surface.Cook on either sides very well.
