Cholkia Bhakris (tawa roasted )

                                             Cholkia Bhakri (Bhakris in banana leaves)                         
                          Cholko means pieces of banana leaf ! and bhakries are thick dosas   made from raw rice and coconut paste. Hence cholkia bhakries are the dosas prepared on the banana leaf peices .. But unlike  the usual ” thick ” bhakries  – these are made thin . The batter is pasted on the banana leaves and then they are roasted on the hot tawa. The  charred banana leaves impart a significant aroma to the dosas and make them even more tasty. And on a healthy note ,these bhakries are completely oil free….!!!!! so here goes the recipe of my mother-in- law and the most favourite of her dear son !!!

Ingredients :-

  1. Raw rice  – 2 cups
  2. Grated coconut  – 1 cup
  3. Salt to taste 
  4. Banana leaf cut in to small pieces..

Method :-

  • Soak rice for a minimum of 3 hours.
  • Now grind it to a smooth paste along with the grated coconut with minimum water.
  • The batter should not be too runny or else pasting it on the banana leaves would be tough .
  • No need of making too thick also ….
  • Now take the banana leaf and apply the batter using a laddle on one leaf.
  • Cover it with another piece and keep directly on the hot tawa.
  • Roast till they are done…
  • They would be ready within a few minutes.
  • Serve hot !

Usually we have dalitoy with the bhakries …But this time we loved having  with another GSB speciality Soyi bhajjile ghashi…..and they were yummmmm!!!!!
