I have never heard of this dish until I came across Cookspot's blog. I was wondering how Sooji(rava) will bind together without any flour. But to my surprise, they turned out soft and tasty. These are slightly thicker than regular rotis. If you are bored of Upma or dosas, try this recipe.
Water-just enough to wet the sooji
Ginger chopped-1/2 tsp
Green chilli chopped-1/4 tsp
Chilli powder-a pinch(optional)
Coriander leaves(Cilantro) chopped-1 tsp
Grated coconut-2 tbsp
Finely chopped onion-1/4 cup
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Wet sooji with little water(1/4 cup approx) and let it stand for 10 minutes.
Add rest of the ingredients(except oil) and make a soft dough(without adding extra water). You should be able to roll into balls. If the mixture is very dry, add very little water.
Heat a pan, grease it with a drop of oil. Place a medium sized ball and pat it with your palm into thick roti. Drizzle oil along the edges of the roti. Cook on both sides till it turns soft(it cook fast, so keep an eye on it). Serve hot with chutney or sambar.
Note: They don't have to turn golden brown and crisp.
