Rava Roti

A very nice alternative to akki roti is this rava roti or sajjige roti. It is very commonly made in Karnataka and is a very popular breakfast dish. Soft yet crisp, rava roti is quite filling.
And what do I say about the taste. Simple, humble yet very very tasty. Rava roti is also quick to make. It can be made in 2 ways, directly patted on a cooled tawa or patted on a greaseproof paper/plantain leaf. I have illustrated both methods here.

Rava roti requires loads of coconut which is what makes them soft and tasty. Seasonings are kept simple with pounded black pepper adding nice taste. Chopped onions can be optionally added, I have added them here.
While making the dough, adding a little yogurt, curd makes them extra soft.

Adding coconut should not be compromised with

Few people add sour yogurt/curd. Adding regular sweet yogurt is also just fine!

Resting the rava is very essential after adding water. It gives a chance for the rava to absorb all water
