Rulao Bhakri (Konkani flat bread)

Rulao means Sooji/ Semolina in Konkani. This Bhakri is very simple and Quick. It takes only 15 minutes to prepare the batter. This bhakri comes to your rescue if you want to prepare a breakfast very quickly.

  • Semolina/Sooji- 2 cups (I substituted 1/2 a cup of Sooji with All purpose flour)
  • Green Chilli- 2
  • Ginger- 1/2 inch
  • Jaggery- 1 tsp
  • Grated Coconut, fresh/frozen- 3-4 Tbsp
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- 2 Tbsp

Chop the green chillies and grate the ginger. Keep it aside.
Now mix sooji, chopped green chilllies, grated ginger, grated coconut, jaggery and salt.
Add water little by little. Consistency of the batter should not be too watery. The batter has to be kept for 10 minutes. In that 10 minutes, the sooji will absorb the water content. After 10 minutes, if it becomes too thick, then you can add little water (the final consistency should be thicker than the urad dal dosa batter).
Now take a cup of water in a bowl (this will be used in spreading the bhakris). Once the pan gets heated, take a small portion of the batter using your hand and place it in the middle of the pan. 

Dip your hand in water and start spreading the batter as much as possible ( you should be very quick in doing this, otherwise it will be difficult to spread, resulting in very thick bhakris. If you feel it difficult then you can also spread it on a banana leaf or aluminum foil and then transfer it to the pan)

Add oil while frying(optional). After 1-2 minutes flip the dosa to fry the other side. This might take 1-2 more minutes. Rulao Bhakri is ready.

Serve it hot with butter on top. You can also serve it with any curry or chutney of your choice. Above measurement is for serving two people.

Note: You can also try making slight variations to the bhakris by adding onions and coriander leaves.
