rava bhakri(rava rotti,sajjigey rotti in kannada,rulava bakri in konkani)

Rava rotti or rulava bakri as we konkani's call it is a healthy breakfast.Normally we make plain rava bakri  which is little boring .My kids are fussy when it comes to traditional food.In plain  rava rotti  we use coconut,rava and chilly for taste.But in this rotti i have used onion and coriander to give little different taste because of both the ingredients the flavor and  the aroma doubles compared to usual plain rotti.
    I like to have it with homemade butter instead of chutney.some people would like to have it with pickles too but the buttery  combo is awesome.So i advice to have it with fresh homemade butter. 

Rava(wheat semolina)-2cups
Coconut-1/2 cup(grated)
green chilly-3
onion-1 chopped
coriander leaves-2tbsp(chopped finely)
salt to taste.
Oil or ghee for frying.


  • Grind coarsely coconut,sugar,chillies and salt.The paste should not be too smooth because you have to feel the coconut and chillies while eating the bakri.
  • Now add this paste to rava.Add some water about 2 cups to make a thick batter.The batter should be thick and when making bakri you have to use your hand to spread the batter. 
  • Now heat the dosa pan or tava.
  • Apply ghee or oil over the tava and put a ladle full of the bakri batter and spread it with hands.Make about 6-8 inch diameter rounds.Fry on both the sides.First while frying cover it with a lid and then fry on the other side too.Apply ghee or oil while frying both the sides.
  • Serve hot with butter.
