Steps In Making

  1. Peal and grate lauki with the help of a grater and keep it aside.
  2. In a large bowl add suji, dahi, water and mix well.
  3. Now add the grated lauki, chopped onions, capsicum, ginger, green chillies, green peas and sweet corn.
  4. Further add salt, red chilli flakes, black pepper powder, cumin seeds, fresh coriander and salt. Mix till everything is well combined. The batter should have a medium consistency, it shouldn’t be very thick nor thin.
  5. Now let the batter rest for 10 minutes.
  6. If the batter has become thick then add little water. Now add the fruit salt along with a tablespoon of water and gently mix it again. This will make the roasties very soft and fluffy.

  8. Cover it with a lid and cook from both slides for 3-4 minutes or till it gets a crispy texture and golden brown colour.
