ABOUT Rava Rotti/Savoury Semolina pancakes RECIPE

he recipe is quite similar to Akki Rotti & served with chutney, thokku, chutney pudi or pickle of your choice. Today happened to be that day.. :D. K likes the rotti’s thin & crispy. You can make them thicker too but these tend to get kinda heavy on the tummy; you have one & your done with your breakfast, so we prefer it thinner, so that we can eat a couple of them each. Well I don’t really know if this dish frequents in other Kannadiga’s kitchen’s, but for me it was a real catch.

Ingredients Serving: 2

  1. Fine Semolina/ Rava – 1.5 – 2 cups
  2. onion – 1 medium-sized finely chopped
  3. carrot – 1 medium-sized skin off & grated
  4. onion greens – 2-3 stalks finely chopped
  5. cucumber – 1 medium-sized peeled
  6. Green chilli ’s – 3 medium-sized slit & fine chopped into bits
  7. coriander leaves – 4-5 sprigs finely chopped
  8. cumin seeds – 1 1/4 tsp
  9. asafoetida – a pinch
  10. Freshly Grated coconut (optional) – 2 tbsp
  11. Cooking oil – as per need
  12. salt to taste


  1. Take a medium-sized mixing bowl & add the chopped onions, grated carrot, chopped onion greens, coriander, green chilli’s, cumin seeds, asafoetida & salt to taste. Mix well
  2. Keep aside. Let the onion sweat & let out some water.
  3. Roughly chop the peeled cucumber & blend it to a smooth paste. Do not add any water.
  4. Mix the juice along with the other ingredients & also add 1.5 cups of rava/semolina & the grated coconut if you wish to add.
  5. Check if you need to add some more salt. We need a easy to handle dough. Not too dry & not too wet. If there is too much water in there, add some more semolina till you achieve a consistency which is easy to handle.
  6. Divide the dough into 4-5 equal portions. Take a tava or a pancake pan & spread one portion of the dough evenly around on the tava, using your fingertips. Spread it as thick or thin, it is completely upto your preference.
  7. Place the tava on the stove & turn on the heat to medium. Sprinkle some drops of oil around just like you do when preparing a Dosa or a pancake. Cover & cook.
  8. Check after 2-3 minutes. Add some more oil if required. Cook till the rotti/pancake starts to separate away from the pan or starts to brown from the bottom. Turn over, cover & cook for another minute.
  9. Take the lid off & transfer the rotti to a plate

We don't eat onions , May I add capsicum instead? I n this case should I add a little water to bind?
