Rave Bhakri / Sajjige Roti

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 Chilies - 4
Water - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - about 1/2 tsp

How to cook Konkani Rave Bhakri:
  • Mix all the above ingredients except oil in a mixing bowl. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes. Soaking semolina for a longer time will make the pancakes too soft and not crisp. Add coconut water if available, enhances its taste.
  • 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. 
  • 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.
  • If the pancake breaks, add more semolina.
