Fruits & Spicy Rava Rotti

This Fruits and Spicy Rava Rotti is some thing new and creation of my own idea. 

When I do prepare something its like what to change? What makes the food more interesting. How about adding this or that, so and so. Here is one such creation and that is Fruits & Spicy Rava Rotti.
I have used bottle gourd gratings, pomegranate seeds, apple gratings, coconut and little milk.
This rotti taste bit sweet and mild spicy. I have also used some spices like jeera/cumin seeds and chilly powder. The combination of fruits adds aroma to rotti.
Rotti is normally a favourite dish of many. Even I like any type of rotti and do prepare it as I like it. I am sure you too like it and really enjoy this yum yum rotti.
No onion or no garlic is used here. No sugar or jaggery is used here. It is the fruits give a very little sweet taste.
Let us see the recipe now :
