Cabbage Sarvapindi Roti is the most popular snack for all households in Telangana. Sarva Pindi is a savoury pancake made in Telangana which is a circularly shaped dish made of rice flour, cabbage and peanuts. Cabbage is added to the dough to enhanced the dish. It is also called Tappala Chekkalu or Tappala Attu in Andhra Pradesh. Its also referred to as Ginnappa in some part of Telangana.
In some parts of Telangana, grated bottle gourd is also used as alternative to grated cabbage. This tastes so good that one can’t stop slurping with only one piece. Also, Sarvapindi is an amazing alternative to high calorific Naan breads and Parathas. As a blogger, I would like to admit this is most sort of snack from my kids and spouse.
