Oats – Semolina/Rava roti

Semolina/Sooji/Rava roti is an instant breakfast recipe which can be done without any pre-planning, soaking or fermenting batter. Here semolina is combined with oats and rice flour. This Roti is usually made with 100% white rice flour. As a variation have added Oats and Semolina, which made the Roti’s soft and healthy.

  5. That sounds delicious! A great breakfast indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Looks easy and delicious!


  7. I cannot have semolina. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Miss rava dosa. What should I do if I am making it with just rice flour?


  8. I used to prepare dosa with similar combination, roti is nice thought. Hen it comes to innovation ypi rock big time


  9. Chitra your rocking. I need to learn a lot from your blog ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. Just thought I’d let you know of the importance of Tagging your posts! I’ve just spent over 15 minutes trailing through your older posts to find this. In future I’ll bookmark. It wasn’t possible to Search using roti. Nor is your Archives working.


    • Thanks for the feedback. Apologies..I verified in internet explorer, safari and chrome all is ok. Please let me know which browser you are using will try to find out the reason…am so sorry that it caused the problem and happy you looking for my recipe..it is a mixed feeling…wait to hear..


      • My fault! I was nearly certain that I’d Pinned or bookmarked the recipe. I’m using Google Chrome, and even if the Archives was working I wouldn’t have found the recipe through it. The easiest way, and I found out the hard way quite recently, is through Tags. I’ve no idea why people use those instead of recipe lists through the address bar. Good news is that I found your recipe. And liked its flavour. Worked well with caramelised onion hummus in biscuit form.


      • Happy that the recipe turned out good and you liked it..in the site there is a search option on the right hand side which captures all recipe as well tag names. Hope that will help in future….nice to know the variations adopted
