Masala Rava Rotti / Karnataka style semolina flat bread

1 cup fine rava / semolina (that we use for upma)
1 finely chopped onion
Handful of chopped coriander leaves
2 sprigs of chopped curry leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds/ jeera
2 tblsp grated coconut
3 tblsp roasted peanuts
 3/4 tsp chilli powder
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking rotti


  • Put coconut gratings ,  peanuts and chilli powder in a small mixer jar and grind coarsely without water
  • Put it in a bowl and add all the ingredients except oil
  • Add water to the mixture and mix nicely to form a moist dough
  • Keep covered for 20 mins. The consistency of the dough should be thicker than the idli batter and should be easy to pat with yorur hands
  • Grease a banana leaf or alluminium foil ,take a big lemon sized dough and pat it evenly with your hands to a thin rotti
  • Wet your hands in between with water to pat it
  • Heat tava,once it is hot transfer the sheet with rotti on tava , after few seconds carefully remove the sheet from tava such that the rotti remains on tava intact .
  • Cook the rotti on a medium flamePour few drops of oilall over it
  • Once it becomes brown flip it and cook the other side
  • Serve hot rotti with chutney
  • You can also pat the rotti on a warm tava and then keep it on the flame and cook it. (I prefer this method)

1 cup fresh coconut gratings
4 garlic cloves
2-3 red chillies roasted in oil
Little tamarind 
Salt to taste
Grind the above igredients and make a smooth paste and your chutney is ready to serve.
