Jack Fruit Rave Rotti

Jack Fruit season is almost over and you need to wait for fresh fruits for next season. 
Just before the season  I got this fruit from my sister. She lives in Kadiyali./Udupi. The fruits are very tasty and we do long for this jack fruits to have at least once a year.


Viji's house the jack trees did not bare many fruits, because This year the fruits just fell off before it got ripening. Some thing must have happened since there was no rain until July end and the trees must have suffered  of no rain. It did not bare many fruits and the ones started to grow it fell off and rotten. A few were there to eat. So she gave us one Jack Fruit and it took long time to ripe. Any ways we were lucky to have.
Jack fruit rotti is very tasty and you can have them for breakfast or dinner.
It is easy, quick and healthy too. 
I have used medium size rave/rava/semolina, very little coconut, jack fruits and salt. The sweetness in the fruit adds the sweet. Extra sweet is not used here.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Jack fruits : 1 Bowl (15 to 20 fruits).
Medium size Rava/Semolina/Sooji : 2 Cups
Coconut : 3 to 4 Tbs
Salt : To taste.
Oil : 3 to 4 Tbs

Method :

1. Cut jack fruit into small pieces.


2. Grate coconut and grind it with jack fruit pieces. Do not add any water while grinding.
3. Take it out from the mixi jar to a bowl.
4. Add salt and mix 2 cups of medium size rava.


5. Mix the batter well. Add little water if required only.


6. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Clean it nicely with a clean towel or kitchen tissue.
7. Sprinkle some oil on the tava and spread around it. Let the flame be very low.
8. Take a handful of the batter and spread it as thin as you like.


9. Sprinkle some oil on the top, cover and cook for a minute.
10. Turn the other side and cook for 30 seconds.


11. Jackfruit rotti is ready to serve. Repeat the same with remaining batter.


12, Serve with any side dish of your choice. We had it with ghee and chutney powder.




Note : 

Do not add any water while grinding. Adding more coconut is optional. The ground mixture has moisture and it mixes well with rava. Or you can add only if it is necessary. The batter should be bit thicker than idli batter. Adding jaggery is optional. I did not add any spice or sweet except salt.
Time : 30 Minutes
Serves : 3 to 4 (As you serve).
