Rave Bhakri (Semolina Pancakes with Cucumber)

Easy and quick pancakes made of Semolina and Cucumber.  A Konkani recipe which is like thaalipith and also known as Sajjige Roti in Kannada.

Semolina/Rava/Sooji - 1 1/4 cups
Grated Coconut - about 1 cup
Grated Cucumber - about 1/2 cup
Cumin/Jeera seeds - 1 tsp
Chopped Green Chillies - 4
Water - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - about 1/2 tsp

1. Mix all the above ingredients except oil in a mixing bowl.  Soaking semolina for a longer time will make the pancakes too soft and not crisp.  Add coconut water if available, enhances its taste.
2. Heat a pan/tawa, add few drops of oil.  Spread a handful of the above mixture evenly as thin as possible with hands.  While spreading lowering the heat helps. 
3. Flip it after a minute or when the edges dry.  Drizzle few drops of oil all over the pancake and roast it till golden brown on both sides.  Rave Bhakri is ready to binge.
4. If the pancake breaks, add more semolina.
