Today we are moving to Karnataka,a South Indian state and the cuisine includes both vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes.
Rice is the staple food but other grains such as jowar,ragi and wheat are also commonly included in their cuisine.A typical Kannadiga oota(meal) is served on a banana leaf in a particular order.
The food culture is slightly different in North and South Karnataka.
Coming to the recipe its an instant pancake kind of breakfast dish which is extremely popular in Karnataka served along with chutney and chutney podi.I served mine with coconut chutney,coriander chutney and idly podi.Lets move on to the recipe..........................................

|Rice Flour/Arisi maavu||2 cups|
|Hot water||to knead|
|Onion(finely chopped)||1 (medium size)|
|Green chilly/pachamilagai||3 (finely chopped)|
|Cumin seeds/jeeragam||1 tsp|
|Coriander leaves||1 tbs(chopped)|
|Ginger/inji (grated)||1/2 tsp|
Take the rice flour in a bowl and to this add everything except oil and mix it well.Now to this add the hot water slowly and mix it well with a wooden spatula.Form a soft dough and divide into 3 equal portions.
Now take a parchment paper or banana leaf and grease with oil.Keep one ball on the greased sheet.
Flatten it gently with the hands to 1/4 inch thick,heat a griddle and carefully flip the flatten dough to the griddle.Cook it in a medium flame for a minute and drizzle a tsp of oil.Flip it to the other side and cook it till it gets nice golden color.
Serve it warm with chutney.
- The dough can be directly flatten in on the griddle,as I am not comfortable I used a parchment paper.
- Here I didn't add the grated carrot,but it makes it more more healthy and colorful.
- Use boiling water to make the dough to get a nice,soft rotis.
