What is luxury according to you? To me it means being pampered by mom. How it will be when your mom asks you what you would like to have before making every meal and you just ask her to make your favourites…..Your favourite dishes and her touch of love makes the recipes taste delectable and you feel to be on cloud 9……right now this is something I am experiencing being at mom’s place. When you don’t have to get up early in the morning thinking what to make for breakfast and what to pack in lunch……and when this episode ends you need to think for dinner. But being at mom’s place just tell her what you like to eat and with in no time it is served…..that’s what I call pure luxury…..
Coming to today’s recipe, this is one of my all time favourite roti as I can call it….Recipe may differ from family to family…one which I follow is from my mom….Being at mom’s place I thought let her do the cooking and let me click what she cooks and this recipe being of my top favourites….I thought of clicking this first…..The aroma which surrounds in the air when mash ki roti is flipped on hot tawa is incredible…….This simple roti can be prepared even with leftover idli batter….This roti can make a perfect Iftar snack or a perfect breakfast recipe or simple evening snack.
- 1 cup Mash/Urad dal
- 2 cups Idli rava
- Soak urad dal overnight or 5-6hrs & grind to smooth paste.
- Wash & soak idli rava in water for 30-40mins. Later squeeze the excess water from idli rava & mix above grinded urad-dal paste. Add salt & water to adjust consistency which should look like idli or pancake batter.
- Take a heavy bottom vessel or pan, grease it with oil and pour a big ladle full of batter. Spread a little to form a nice thick round.
- Reduce the flame & cook covered till the bottom of the crepe turn crispy & golden in color. Flip over & cook till the other side turn lightly golden.
- Serve hot with peanut chutney/tomato chutney/any pickle.
- Last but not least add your ‘love’ to make the dish ‘YUMMY’.
- My mom brushes each mash ki roti with a spoonful of ghee.
- Sometimes she adds finely sliced onions, jeera/cumin and chopped green chilies to the batter. This gives whole new flavour to the mash ki roti.
