Kharada (Kavalige) Rotti | ಖಾರದ (ಕಾವಲಿಗೆ) ರೊಟ್ಟಿ

Spicy & tasty flat bread from Rice made with Banana leaves!

Ingredients  |  ಬೇಕಾಗುವ ಪದಾರ್ಥಗಳು:
2 cups Boiled Rice  |  ಕುಚ್ಚುಲಕ್ಕಿ  ( ಕುಸುಬಲಕ್ಕಿ) *
1 cup White Rice  |  ಬೆಳ್ತಿಗೆ  ಅಕ್ಕಿ *
4 - 6 Red Chillies  |  ಕೆಂಪು ಒಣ ಮೆಣಸು
1 cup grated Coconut  |  ತುರಿದ ತೆಂಗಿನಕಾಯಿ
1/4 inch sized Ginger  |  ಶುಂಠಿ
12 - 15 strands of Curry leaves  |  ಕರಿ ಬೇವಿನ ಸೊಪ್ಪು
3 medium sized Onions  |  ಈರುಳ್ಳಿ
Salt to taste  |  ರುಚಿಗೆ ತಕ್ಕಷ್ಟು ಉಪ್ಪು
Banana leaves  (15 pieces) |  ಬಾಳೆ ಎಲೆ  (15 ತುಂಡುಗಳು) 
Ghee  or Oil  |  ತುಪ್ಪ ಅಥವಾ ಎಣ್ಣೆ

I have used  BVK brand Boiled Rice & broken Steam Rice (Sona Masuri)

Soak white rice and boiled rice together in water for about 6-10 hrs. Grind soaked rice along with grated coconut, salt, curry leaves, ginger and red chillies into smooth thick dough by adding required amount of water(Around 2 cups). 
Chop the onions into small pieces and add it to the dough and mix well.Take one Banana Leaf | Wax Paper | Aluminium Foil (For aluminium foil: put 1 tsp of oil and spread it over the foil). Take handful of dough and spread it over the banana leaf evenly as shown in the picture below. Heat the Tava(Iron Tava preferred) put the rotti upside down as shown in the picture below. Cook it for a minute by covering the lid. Remove the banana leaf and spread 1-2 tsp ghee/oil over the rotti and cook other side of the rotti for about 3-4 min in medium/low flame.

Serve hot along with Avil / Badanekai Ennegayi or any kind of sambar or with Ghee | Coconut Oil. The above mentioned ingredients will serve 15 Rottis.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * Use good quality of Rice 
 * If the Batter has excess Water, it can be refrigerated for 3-4 hrs or add required amount of Rice flour & mix
 * Batter can be prepared in bulk & stored in freezer for instant usage. Add the chopped Onions whenever used.
 * ಗುಣಮಟ್ಟದ ಅಕ್ಕಿಯನ್ನು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿ  
 * ಹಿಟ್ಟು ನೀರಾದರೆ, 3-4 ಗಂಟೆ ಫ್ರಿಡ್ಜ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಡಿ ಅಥವಾ ಬೇಕಷ್ಟು ಅಕ್ಕಿ ಹುಡಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಕಲೆಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ
 * ಉಳಿದ ಹಿಟ್ಟನ್ನು ಫ್ರೀಜರ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಟ್ಟು, ಬೇಕಾದಾಗ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಬಹುದು. ಹೆಚ್ಚಿದ ಈರುಳ್ಳಿಯನ್ನು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸುವಾಗ ಹಾಕಿಕೊಳ್ಳಿ

Hi Ragu,

I haven't seen plantain leaves in CA. Instead you can use aluminium foil as mentioned in the blog :-) I prepared this recipe during my recent visit to India.
