Corn - carrot semolina pancake/ rava rotti

Rava rotti/semolina pancake is a specialty of mangalore.My mom used to prepare  plain rava rotti and some times she used add some chopped onion or cucumber for a change, which tastes awesome with home made butter. To give a little twist to our humble rotti i have just added some corn and carrots to make it little more interesting and sprinkled some oregano to give some Italian touch to our Indian pan cake.Hope you really going to love this as it is not only tasty but very healthy option for your kids lunch box.
