Wheat Sooji/Rava Roti

I had a great weekend......shopping, relatives home visit, lazying at home, friends comeover and a lot more.......that I find it very hard to get back to the usual routine....Have started waiting for pongal hols :) Hmm coming to todays menu, I made this sooji roti long back and it was lying in my drafts for around 6months, so pulled it out. Wheat Sooji/Rava roti, is instant it can be done just like that.....Most of my recent/future recipes will be quick...am so lazy and now blame it on work and the kiddo :) And am sure this wheat sooji roti will be a better alternative to rava upma!

Wheat Rava roti

Ingredients:

Wheat sooji/rava - 1 cup
Finely chopped onion - 1/2 cup
Hing - 1 tsp
Grated coconut - 2 tbsp (optional)
Finely chopped green chillies- 2 tsp
Finely chopped ginger - 2 tsp
Curd - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil

Method:
1.Dry roast rava on a medium flame, till it gives nice aroma. Keep aside and allow it to cool.

2.Mix all other ingredients to form a batter like idli batter consistency. Add water if its too thick, Let it sit for 15mins.

3. Heat tawa, drizzle oil and spread the batter on it (about 1/2 inch thickness).

4. Cover it with a lid and allow it to cook for 3mins. Turn it to other side and allow it to cook till its light brown.

5.Serve hot with the chutney of ur taste or chutney podi. I had neither of it so clicked with garlic pickle :)
