- Ragi flour/Finger Millet flour - 2 cups
- Rice flour - 2 tbsp
- Grated carrots - 1 cup
- Grated coconut - 2 tbsp
- Onion - chopped - 1 small
- Green chili - 1 or as per your spice level
- Curry leaves - 5-6
- Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1 teaspoon
- Coriander leaves/Cilantro - 1 handful
- Salt to taste
- Oil around 3 tbsp for making rottis
- Take a large mixing bowl and add all the ingredients except oil.
- Sprinkle water little by little and mix well to form a dough.
- Heat the skillet on medium flame. Take a piece of parchment paper and apply little oil on it.
- Take a large lemon sized piece of dough and flatten into thin disc on greased parchment paper by pressing it with your palm.
- Take the rotti along with parchment paper and place on hot skillet with the rotti side facing down. Carefully remove the parchment paper.
- Apply little oil on rotti. Cover and cook each side for 5-6 minutes on low-medium flame.
- Serve hot with coconut chutney.
- For pressing the dough, you can use banana leaf instead of parchment paper.
- To easily separate the parchment paper from rotti, grease the parchment paper well with oil before pressing the rotti.
- Another way to flatten the dough is directly on the hot tawa. You need to dip your hand in cold water every time you press the dough. Please have a look at the video recipe to see how to do this.
I made this recipe as part of the "Shh Cooking Secretly" event. This is an event started by Priya of Priya's Versatile Recipe and now being taken forward by Mayuri of Mayuri's Jikoni. At the beginning of the month a theme is chosen by one of the participants and all the participants are grouped in pairs. The participants will exchange 2 secret ingredients with their partners who are suppose to prepare a dish that matches the theme of that month.
This month's theme is "Millet Magic" and it was chosen by Aruna SarasChandra of "Vasu's Veg Kitchen". My partner for this month is Kalyani Sri and she shared Ragi and Green Chili as my secret ingredients and I shared her Kodo Millet and Asafoetida as her ingredients. She made Kodo Millet Pongal. Do visit her blog "Sizzling TasteBuds" to find this delicious and healthy pongal recipe.
