Rave rotti(Semolina Roti)

This dish is requested by a reader of mine & she wanted me to publish it as early as possible. So.., here it goes for you & also to others who want to give it a try.

Chiroti rava or small rava/semolina: 3.5 cups
Akki hittu/Rice flour: 1/2 cup
Anna/Cooked rice: A fistful/ondu hidi (optional, makes the rotti soft)
Carrot: 1/2 cup grated
Erulli/Onion: 1 medium sized (finely chopped, optional but recommended as this would give a crunchy effect to the dish)
Curry leaves: as much as you want (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves: a fistful (finely chopped)
Grated coconut: 3-4 tbsp
Salt: According to taste
Jeera/Jeerige/Cumin seeds: 1 tsp
Mosaru/Curd/Yogurt: 1/2 cup (shouldn't be very sour)
Grated cucumber: 1/2 cup (this gives a totally different flavor to the rotti, but if you don't like you can discard it too)
Finely chopped green chillies: As much as you want (I normally do not add this, as my family likes it less or rather no spicy)
Oil: 1 tbsp for each rotti
Water: Roughly around 1 cup (use cucumber water as much as possible)

  • Blend the cooked rice to make a smooth paste.
  • Mix all the above ingredients mentioned. Make a dough similar to rice rotti dough.
  • Pat it on the tava or a banana leaf, cook on both sides & serve with coconut chutney.

  1. If you want the rotti to be soft, decrease the rawa & increase the rice flour.
  2. Do not pat the rotti very thin, keep it medium like parathas.
  3. Add the oil generously as it helps in roasting the rotti better.
  4. Feel free to add leafy vegetables like methi, dill to this rotti for different flavors & nutrients.


  1. Stopped to say bye. Have fun blogging and will catch up with ur posts once I find time in India.Have a happy holiday season

  2. I will try this for sure coz,this is double dhamakha for me,i love roti/adai and also sooji...Bookmarked!

  3. Thumba chennaagide rotti.... Nanige amma maaduthidda rottiya nenapaayithu.... Aadare eega I think, ondu varusha vaayithu... naanu thindu...

    Now I just relish it in my thoughts.... When she has prepared akki rotti & if she or me, either of us visit eachother I get to taste that again... if not... I think it is time I tried it all by myself... as the saying goes.... Why wait for someone to bring you flowers...better to plant your own garden!!!!! Very true....!!!!
