Wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

I made Chocolate chip cookies, Pound cake and a special Andhra Cake (its not baked, but rather cooked cake) for Christmas this year.

This is the newest help that I bought from India this time. Its a multi-function table-top grinder (Ultra pride+). Making idlis and dosas is going to be a jiffy now (its just going to more convenient than regular blender).

My Ammamma used to make big fluffy Dibba rottes (literally translated into “Fat bread”) in a round brass utensil (ittadi ginne). It resembles a cake in both shape and texture and hence the name Andhra cake.

Th cake is basically made with fresh idli batter which is not fermented.

Dibba Rotte
Instructions
  1. Soak urad dal and idli rawa (separately) for 4-5 hours.
  2. Grind urad dal into smooth batter by adding little water. Add pre-soaked idli rawa to the batter and mix well. Add jeera to the batter and mix well.
  3. In a deep (either round or flat bottom) pan, heat 2 tsp oil on medium heat, add about 2 cups (or more depending on the size of your pan) of batter. Place a small steel plate or spoon in the batter, so that the inside gets cooked evenly. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the rotte comes out without sticking to the bottom.
  4. Turn the rotte over and cook on the other side for another 7-10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the pan, cut into wedges and serve with chutney, sambhar or pachadi.

  7. Hi Pavani,
    I tried this recipe out this morning and it was awesome! I used my wet grinder too.

    I had never tried this recipe before, but I really enjoyed it. It was nice and light, tasting kind of like bread married with iddli. Served it with sambar and coconut chutney and it was perfect.

    Thanks for such great recipes!
