Spicy Wheat flour Rotti

Having good breakfast is always a good habit. Breakfast should be filled with carbohydrates, protein,calcium and it should be tummy filling. (Not over eating). Typical South Indian will always think of preparing dosa, idli, upma, poori etc, etc, etc. Preparing some thing for breakfast is always a challenge to the lady of the house.
Here is an easy dish which is filling, bit spicy and quick. Spicy Wheat Flour dosa is one such option, that no need to grind, or keep it ready. You just mix some wheat flour and a handful of rava/semolina and some red chilly powder, salt, jeera and curry and coriander leaves. Adding little coconut gratings will definitely adds to the taste and aroma.
