mangalore style sajjige rottiRava rotti or sajjige rotti is an instant breakfast recipe. To prepare sajjige rotti Sajjige (rava) or Semolina is mixed with curd, water, flour, coconut, coriander leaves, asafoetida and green chilli. Then the sajjige rotti or rava rotti batter is spread on the hot pan. Sajjige rotti or rava rotti is yet another easy and tasty breakfast recipe from mangalore region of Karnataka.

Semolina or rava is called by name "sajjige" in Karavalai region of Karnataka. And there any rotti (roti) is prepared by spreading the thick batter over the hot pan. So the name sajjige rotti. Or we can say, it as a thicker variety of rava dosa.

You can find more rava or semolina recipes on this website like rave uppittu (rava upma), rava kesari bath, rave unde or rava laddu and instant rava dosa.

Again this sajjige rotti recipe is from my mother-in-law. Or I can say most of the Mangalore recipes, which I post here are from her. She says adding a pinch of turmeric powder and adding tempering are also in practice. And for tempering mustard seeds and buttermilk-chili (sandige menasu) are generally used. So I have marked these two as optional ingredients.
