Millet -Rava Carrot Rotti

Millets/Jola/Jowar are known as one of the healthiest grain. Millet has become world wide favourite grain. It is always better to go for good diet and enjoy having healthy food.
Millet - Rava Carrot Rotti is good to have for breakfast. Millet and Rava both grains are easy to digest and provide good energy and keeps you full for a long time.
I have used Millet flour, Rava/Semolina and carrots, curry leaves, onions and some spices. 

Lets see some benefits of eating carrots in our diet.
Carrots helps to reduce cholesterol, improve vision. It also helps in reducing the signs of premature aginging. They help in taking care of good skin health, boost immunity and improve digestion. They are rich in antioxidants. They are rich in minerals and vitamins. They do contain Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin B8. They do contain minerals like folate, potassium, iron, copper and manganese. Carrots are good for people who suffer from blood pressure and people who have constipation problems.
Lets see the recipe now. It is an easy recipe and anyone can try and enjoy.

Things Needed :

Millet/Jola/Jowar Flour : 2 Cups
Rava : ( Medium size): 1 Cup
Carrots : 2
Onion : 1
Curry Leaves : 1 handful (As you like more/less)
Coriander Leaves : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Coconut : 2 Tablespoon
Ginger : Grated : 1 Teaspoon
Green chilly : 1
Salt : As required
Water : As required
Oil : 2 to 4 Tablespoons

 Method :

1. Wash and cut green chilly, curry leaves, coriander leaves into thin pieces.
2. Remove the outer layer of onion and wash it again. Cut into small pieces
3. Grate coconut and keep it aside.
4. Wash and remove the outer layer of carrots and ginger. Wash it again and grate it.
5. Now take a big bowl. Put millet flour and rava/sooji/Semolina.
6. Add cut coriander, curry leaves, green chilly, onion, grated carrots and ginger.
7. Add salt and mix all the ingredients nicely.
8. Add required water and prepare rotti dough. It should be thicker than dosa and idli batter.

9. Keep a dosa pan/tava on the fire. Heat and sprinkle oil on the hot tava. Clean it with a kitchen tissue/towel.
10. Take handful of prepared rotti dough and spread it around the hot tava. (According to your wish).
11. Use your finger tips to spread. Let it be on low flame. (It helps to spread the rotti thin).
12. Spread it nicely in circle shape, sprinkle little oil on the top.
13. Slightly press with the spatula on the top around the rotti. It helps to give a thinner rotti.
14. Let it cook on medium and low flame. Turn the other side and cook for 10 to 20 seconds.

15. Millet - Rava Rotti is ready to serve.

Serve with little butter/ghee on the hot rotti with chutney.
16. Repeat the same with remaining rotti.


Let the dough be little loose.(Not very thick). It helps to spread the rotti easily on the tava.
Adding more vegetable is optional. You can add capsicum, cabbage etc. Adding more/less oil is optional. Do not make the dough very watery.
Time : 30 to 40 Minutes
