Kesu /Colocasia Rava Rotti

Colocasia Rava Rotti is one of the side dish for lunch. Normally colocasia rotti is prepared using raw rice. I have used rava instead of rice and prepared this Rotti.


We from Udupi, normally use this rotti for lunch as one of the side dish. This colocasia rotti is eaten with coconut oil and the plain rice mixing together. The taste is lovely and you will surely enjoy the spicy taste.
