Simple yet delicious snack..




1. Sooji/semolina/rava –  1.5 cups

2. Green chillies- 4 (depending on spice level adjust)

3.  Ginger – 1/4 inch( finely chopped)

4. curry leaves- 5

5. Oil- 1 tbs

6. Ghee- 1/2 tbs

7. water – 1: 1.5 cups  ( 1 rava : 1 .5 water)

8. Salt – 1 tbs


1. Mustard sees – 1 tbs

2. Urad dal/ minappapu – 1 tbs

3. sanaga pappu/ chana dal – 1 tbs

4. hing – 1 small  pinch


1. In a pan add 1 tbs oil, hing, sanaga pappu/ chana dal, Urad dal/ minappapu and let them turn light brown. Now add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Finally add curry leaves and ginger.

2. Now add the semolina/sooji/rava and roast for couple of minutes. Don’t let it burn.

(Now you can empty the roasted rava into a plate and add water to the same pan and boil it or  while the semolina is roasting u can boil the required amount of water in a bowl and add rava to it this reduces cooking time)

4. I boiled the water seperately with salt  for about 5 minutes and add it slowly to the rava and keep stirring to avoid lumps.

5.  Reduce the flames to medium – low and cover with a lid.

6. Finally add ghee and serve it with hot pesarattu or chuteny.
