Semolina Mini Dosa (Rulaavaa Saana Polo or Rulaava Bhaakri)

Semolina is called as Rulaav in Konkani. This Dosa is mini in size hence Rulaava Saana Polo. Saana in Konkani translates to tiny. One quick Dosa when there is less time and plenty of things to do. This should not be confused with Sanna's made in Goa and Mangalore. Its a different dish altogether with a different pronunciation. In Konkani, we also call this is Bhaakar or Bhaakri. Good for working people and on-the-go ones.

Recipe ~ Mom
Serves ~ 3-4 individuals ~ 2 dosa's each

Semolina (Sooji) - Finer variety - 1 Cup
Frozen Grated Coconut - 1/2 Cup
Green Chillies - 2
Sugar - 5-6 teaspoons
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Water - For consistency
Banana (very ripe) (optional) - 1
Oil - For frying

Make a non-runny paste of Semolina, Grated Coconut, Green chillies, Salt, Banana, Sugar and water. Give it a good stir. The batter should be very thick and not runny.

In a flat shallow dish sauce pan (frying pan), slather some oil and spread teaspoonful of batter and slather some oil around it. Its better if the surface area of the pan is big. This gives the food item more room for cooking especially for these Mini-Pancakes. After 5 minutes turn them around, slather some more oil around. Allow to cook till slightly charred on both the sides. Serve hot with dollops of butter.
