Menthe Rave Rotti

FIL brought a bunch of methi leaves and said "Menthe sugar ge olleduntha tande. .ennadroo maadu" (Methi  is good for diabeties.. do something with Methi leaves).. The only recipe that I frequently do with Methi is Methi Thepla. Then MIL shared this recipe that her mom used to prepare when they used to come home from school as evening snack..

You Need:
Chiroti Rava - 1 cup
Methi leaves - 1 cup chopped 
Onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped 
Green chillies - 1 tbsp finely chopped
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp finely chopped
Jeera - 2 tsp
Rice - 1/2 cup cooked and grinded into fine paste
Hing - 1 pinch
Curds - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

In a big bowl mix all the ingredients except water.
Mix well with hand 
Add a little water if the dough is hard to get a semi solid dough
Heat the tava
Take a banana leaf and smear a little oil on the leaf
Now take a lemon sized ball of the dough and pat it on the leaf with your hands to make a thin roti
Turn it onto the tava and remove the Banana leaf
Allow the roti to cook for 2 mins.Keep an eye on it to check in between whether it is done or not.Once you see the red patches started forming increase the flame turn it over and cook it on the other side
Once done serve hot with Chutney
Linking it to the event :Cook n Share
