Water Chestnut Flour Rolls (Singhara Rolls)

Prepare Pancakes from Water Chestnut Flour (Singhare ka Atta) and fill these with potato mixture to make Rolls. Filling can be prepared from cottage cheese also.


For Pancakes:

Filling for Rolls:


  • Make a thin batter of Water Chestnut Flour (little thinner than dosa batter), keep it aside for 30 minutes.
  • Take a pan and heat 1 tbsp oil. Add cumin seeds and curry leaves, when they stop spluttering add chopped potato, red chili powder, chopped green chili, chopped cilantro and Rock salt. Fry for 2-3 minutes and remove from heat. Stuffing is ready. Keep it aside for later use.
  • Take a griddle (tava) or a flat non sticking pan, grease it and then heat it over medium flame for about a minute.
  • Now take ¼ cup of batter and spread it on the pan in a circular shape. Pour ghee/oil in the form of trail along the outer edges of the pancake.
  • Flip when the underside is cooked. Apply the ghee/oil in the same way again. Wait until this side is also cooked.
  • Remove when well done on both sides. Place pancake in a plate and keep filling in the centre and roll it. Singhara Roll is ready.
  • Serve hot with chutney.

Note: You can eat the pancake with Aloo ki Sabji just like that without making rolls.

A popular legend associated with the celebration of Navratri Festival is the story of Lord Rama, who wanted to rescue his wife Sita, from the demon king Ravana. To free her from the clutches of the demon king, Lord Rama worshipped Goddess Durga in her nine different forms, for nine days, so that he gets all the strength and power to kill Ravana. All the nine days became Navratri and hence, celebrated every year.

On the tenth day, Rama killed Ravana and that day is called Vijayadashmi or Dussehra.
