Rava Rotti

Happy Thanxgiving to all of you out there!!!

I have for you a breakfast recipe today. Except for some of the ingredients, Rava rotti is very similar to the Masala Akki Rotti recipe that I had posted previously.... I like this recipe better, mainly because it takes very little oil and its very easy to make. So, here goes the recipe.. enjoi!


1 cup Rava/Semolina
1/4 cup Curds
1/2 Onion, chopped thinly
2-3 tbsp Grated Coconut, fresh/frozen (optional)
2-3 tbsp Grated Carrots (optional)
2-3 strands Cilantro
1.5 tsp Jeera
1-2 Green chillies,chopped
Salt as per taste
1-2 tsp Oil


  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil in a mixing bowl. The batter should be thicker than the usual dosa batter.
  2. Take a non-stick tava and grease it with a few drops of oil.
  3. Pour a handful of the batter on the pan and spread it into a circle with the help of you hands.
  4. Cook on stove with medium heat. Cook on both sides.
  5. Remove from tava and serve hot with coconut chutney or any other side dish of your choice.

Note: To make the next rotti, hold the backside of the tava under cold running water for a few seconds or until it cools down. Proceed with making the next rotti.

Laavanya said...

That looks lovely and the preparation seems similar to Akki Roti. I'm sure the rava makes it crispy and wonderful.

Finla said...

Rave rotti looks so beautiful, i am sure it was delicious too

Ramya's Mane Adige said...

Good Q, Sig.... Rava dosa and rotti sound similar but they actually taste very different. For rava dosa, we use fine rava and make the batter a little watery. For rotti, we use upma rava and make the batter a little thick.


Thanx girls... It is def a gr8 bfast idea

@Rags kitchen, Happy Cook,

oh yeah, rava did make it crisp... But I like it soft. So I added some extra curds and made it a little soft :)

Wonderful blog. Lots of dishes to experiment and especially the akki rotti with rava. I have heard some people using cooked rice(anna) instead of curd to make the rotti softer. This web site was a good find and keep up the good work, Ramya.

Pankaj Kumar said...

we had tried this dish. It was delicious. Also we had done experiment with Eggs. It was more delicious. Thanks for your invention. :)

Yummmy dish.....♥

Ramya, item looks inviting. One question, whether the Rava is to be used 'hasi' or whether it need to be dry roasted before making the dough?
Am planning to try this one for tomorrow's breakfast. Thanks
