Urad Rava Machkat

                                       Machkat or dhoddak is a tasty breakfast dish usually prepared in our households. Its a simple and easy dish which requires no fermentation . Its a kind of thick dosa prepared or roasted in a deep bottomed iron pan or kaayili as you say in konkani . The well roasted dosa in mustard seasoning gives a distinct aroma and taste.

  2.  Rava ( Bombay rava )   – 2 & 1/2 cups
  3. Ginger chopped  – 2 tsp
  4. Green chillies chopped    – 3 to 4
  5. Hing  – 1/2 tsp
  6. Oil & mustard for tempering 

Method :-

  • Soak urad for 4 to  5 hours.
  • Grind it till smooth and fluffy in a wet grinder.
  • Now soak the rava in some 2 cups of water  (you can use the same water used to wash the grinder) for some 10 to 15 mins.
  • Mix it well with the urad batter .
  • Add salt , chopped green chillies ,ginger and hing.
  • Now the batter is ready to prepare the machkats.
  • You require a deep bottomed pan (preferably the iron kadayi or kaayili ) for making the machkats.
  • Heat the pan and pour a tsp of oil and let  the mustard splutter …
  • Now pour one or two ladle full of batter in the seasoning.
  • Cover and cook on low flame till its roasted well.
  • Flip it and let it roast on the other side too..
  • Be patient enough to roast it evenly till golden.
Your machkat is ready to relish. Serve with any chutney or sambhar or any pickle.

Note :-

  1. You can also prepare idlies or normal dosas with the same batter.
  2. If you are grinding in a mixi then reduce the rava to 2 cups.
