Dibba Rotti | Idli Batter Roti : Andhra Delicacy

I got to know about this dish from a friend of mine ! Initially, I was hesitant to try this dish. In the blog-world, I did find many blogs writing about this dish. My friend had asked me to ferment the batter & I followed her, though some blogs asked for freshly ground batter.

Cooking Time: 10 mins (for 2 rottis)

Ingredients: (Serves 2)
Idli batter: 2 cups, fermented & fresh.
Cumin seeds: 1 tsp
Salt: As needed
Oil: 2 tsp for each rotti.

Special utensil:
a heavy bottom kadai

Mix cumin seeds, and salt to the idli/idly batter & mix well.
Heat a kadai. When it is hot, add a teaspoon of oil. Pour around a cup of batter(I pour 2 big ladle full of batter).

Cook it covered on a low-medium heat for approximately 5 mins. The edges should turn crisp and brown.
Carefully flip the rotti. Sprinkle the remaining teaspoon of oil & cook for another couple of minutes.

Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter.


  1. I like the slightly fermented batter for this..love it anytime

  2. It is somewhat like Gujrati Handvo.. but that is made with mixed lentils.

  3. wow looks good.. v make it something similar like illupichatti dosa..

  4. It is looking so perfectly done and very delicious..

  5. Hi,I make this frequently.In konkani we call it 'dhodak'.We add some mustard seeds and curry leaves to the ghee or oil first.After it splutters then add the batter.try it sometime.

  6. This is a cool dish! a cross btw Dosa and Idli..

  7. Hi Sushma,
    You have nice blog. I have tried couple of your recipes and they have come out well. Thanks.
    This dish is also prepared by konkanis but with tempering of ginger, urad dall, curry leaves

  8. My grandma do almost a rotti with fermented dosa batter, tempting.

  9. As i like your recipes, just sharing with u. Dibba roti is made with urad dhal and rice rawa. Urad dhal soak for 2 hrs and grind smoothly. Rice should be grounded like rawa and this rawa should be soaked for 2 hrs. Add rice rawa to the urad dhal batter and do roti as how u made. With idly batter we can do but it is not authentic dibba roti.

    Hope now you will get idea and will try.
