  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 (13 1/2-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup clarified butter
  • Sweet Potato and Cumin filling, recipe follows
  • 6 green onions, green part blanched
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 white onion, thinly sliced (about 1 pound)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 green chiles, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Step 1

Sift the rice flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the center. Whisk the coconut milk, egg, sugar, ginger, and sesame oil together. Pour the egg mixture into the well in the flour and mix to form a smooth batter. Set the batter aside to rest for 10 minutes before cooking. 

Step 2

In a cast iron pan heat 1/2 teaspoon clarified butter over medium high heat. Ladle 1-ounce of batter into the pan. Cook until edges start to crisp. Flip the Ravadosa to brown the top side. Roll some of the Sweet Potato and Cumin filling in a Ravadosa and tie with a piece of green onion. Repeat with remaining batter.

Step 3

Cook the sweet potatoes in boiling salted water until just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside in a large bowl. Melt the unsalted butter in a large skillet. Saute the onion until golden, about 5 minutes. Combine the cumin, chilies, garlic, ginger, ground coriander, mustard seeds, and turmeric and stir into the onions and cook for 1 minute. Add the onion mixture to the sweet potatoes and mix well. Stir in the chopped coriander and the lemon juice. Season with the kosher salt.
