Sooji Roti

Rava Roti or Sooji Roti is completely a different recipe for me. Usually we make upma, idli and dosai out of semolina. I came across this recipe in a cookbook and want to give a try. The recipe tasted different and it can be made in a jiffy. I loved this recipe and ‘K’ too.  We had this with tomato ketchup but I felt something that is very spicy will go best with this roti.



Sooji – 1 cup

Water – 1 cup

Curd – 2 tbsp

For tempering

Oil – 2 tbsp

Urad dhal – 1 tsp

Channa dhal – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Cilantro – few

Green chillies – 2

Salt – As required

  • Measure and roast the sooji in the pan and keep it aside.
  • In a kadai, add oil and splutter mustard seeds. Once they crack, add channa dhal and urad dhal.
  • Add water, salt and allow it to boil.
  • When they start to boil, add sooji and mix without forming any lumps.
  • continuously stir so that they do not stick to the bottom.
  • Turn off the stove and allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add curd, green chillies, cilantro and curry leaves to the rava mixture.
  • Knead it well to make a dough.
  • Make small balls and press it with the hands to make roti.  Dont make it into a very thin roti.
  • Now heat the tawa, place the roti and drizzle some oil.  Cook it on both the sides.
  • Serve it with tomato sauce or any spicy chutney.

Note: You can also use onions.

Instead of adding the curry leaves, chillies and onions as such, you can grind them and mix with the dough.
