Rava Rotti


This recipe was in my pending list and happened to be an "R" recipe, co-inciding with Nupur's alphabet of the week. So here is my entry for "R" of A-Z of Indian Vegetables. Thank you, Nupur, for hosting this very interesting event! I always look forward to your weekly round-ups! This recipe here is my mil's for a Konkani breakfast made with rava, called Doddak.

1 Cup Rava
3 Tbsp Coconut
1/4 tsp Ginger, grated
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together with water to form a slightly stiff dough. Let rest for at least 20 minutes. Pat a small portion of the dough on a greased tava. Cook until slightly browned, on a medium low flame. Flip and cook the other side until slightly crisp and/or browned. Here I have served Doddak with ginger pickle and yogurt. Goes well with a spicy coconut chutney or sambar.

Dilip said...

great rotis...Jyostna makes em for me...love em with chutney...great recipe

Mahek said...

great recipe,
instant and tasty...
I usually do these rotis with a little butter milk which gives it that sour fermented taste of Dosas

archana said...

Vani, thanks for visiting my blog :)

Hi Vani,
This rava roti looks awesome.Love them with sambar or chutney at the side.

Linda said...

Oh, they look nice and crispy Vani... something new for me to try :)

Vani said...

Usha - thanks for visiting and your comment! :)

Sia- Yup, that's the Konkani version of rava rotti. BTW, I tried your version and I must say, I liked that better! :)


ISG- they are pretty easy to make and taste delicious!

Vini- yeah, it is a simple dish that's easy to make.

Asha- I actually tried Sia's Sajjige rotti and it was delicious!

Nupur- thanks! and thanks for hosting the event.

Ramya- rava bhakri sounds good. is that from North Karnataka?

Vani said...

Trupti- Konkani cooking has coconut in pretty much everything, sweet or savory! :) Gudiys is doing well. She crawls everywhere and chases poor Ginger all around the house. Had a hectic long weekend with lot of little projects around the house. Still a long way to go though! Hope u and the kids are doing great! Hugs to all! :)

Sharmi- thnaks and it is a siple recipe. do try it sometime.

Dilipji- thanks! You mus post Jyotsna's recipe sometime!

Mahek- i use sour buttermilk for other instant dosas. will try it with this next time. thanks for the tip!

Sukanya- thanks. do let me know if you try.

Sandeepa- coconut is almost a staple in Konkani cooking. Would love to see your ma's version. Long weekend was very busy - di not meet anyone or do anything special but just busy with some home improvement projects that are taking much longer than anticipated. I hope u had a good one!

Richa- the traditional doddak recipes does not use onion but I tried a variation of it posted on Supriya's website that had onions. You're right-it tasted awesome!

Vani said...

Meena- these are not rotis in the chappati/paratha sense. They are patted onto the rava and rolled out like the chappatis.

Archana- yeah, it's simple and delicious. Do let me know if you try it out.


Sowmya- yeah, they go very well with sambar and chutney. Sambar especially.

Linda- I didn't quite get the same crispness that my mil gets. they do come out much crisper when my mil makes it. But they were delicious nonetheless! :)
