Rulava Dhoddak (Semolina Sweet Pancakes)

Semolina is low-fat, high carbohydrate food offers a lot of energy along with a variety of other nutrients, including lots of protein and several important minerals as well as vitamins E and B. It is low in cholesterol and sodium and fairly high in fibre and can be safely incorporated into a well-balanced diet.
Semolina is a refined food and should be used once a week only. Remember, whole food is always preferable to refined food.
These pancakes are quick and easy to make and does not require any previous day preparation.
Its a pancake or Dosa which comes to your rescue when you have a sudden urge to eat pancakes or you have unexpected guests at home.
I learnt this dosa from my Mother-in-law.

Serves 3
Semolina or Rava - 3 cups
Green chillies - 2
Ginger - 2 inch
Atta or wheat flour - 1 tbsp 
(incase of non-availability of both, any refined flour can be used - purpose is binding)
Grated coconut or dessicated coconut - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
butter - 1 tbsp

Finely chop green chillies and ginger and keep aside (alternately you could coarsely grind them in a hand blender).
Take a large bowl, add the semolina or Rava, green chillies, ginger, wheat flour, grated or dessicated coconut, sugar and salt and mix well. Add little water just enough to bind all the ingredients.
Now place a griddle or tawa on the stove, and let it heat up well.
Now spread one laddle full of the semolina batter and roughly bring it to a shape of pancake.
The batter is thick so it will not spread like other dosas, you just need to spread it evenly like a dosa.
Add a lilttle olive oil or ghee on all sides and cover for 1 minute.
Now turn it over, and add little ol or ghee again,
Allow it to become golden and crispy.
Sweet Semolina pancakes or "Rulava Dhoddak" is ready.
Serve with Mint Chutney or Honey and a dollop of butter.
