  • 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
  • Special equipment: a 4-inch cast iron pan
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

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.
