There is one great thing about semolina – it cooks in a jiffy, without requiring any pre-soaking, pressure-cooking etc. As a result, it lends itself to a lot of quick-fix recipes such as these delicious Mini Rava Uttapa. Perfect as a snack, breakfast or party food too, these uttapa are made using a batter of rava, maida and curds jazzed up with cumin seeds, chillies and coconut. The best part is that the batter needs to soak for less than half an hour before cooking, and does not require any fermentation. So, you can even fix this up as a snack for sudden guests.
