- Combine together.
- Add buttermilk and combine.
- Now mix all the ingredients together, by adding water little by little to make it a thin batter without any lumps
The consistency should be watery than the regular dosa batter.
- Allow it to stand for 30 mins.
- Now add little more water and stir well.
- Heat a non-stick girdle.
- Keep the flame in medium low and sprinkle finely chopped onion on it.
- Now sprinkle the batter ( with hands) or with a spoon on top of sprinkled onion, in round shape.
- As the batter is thin, we cannot spread it like normal dosa batter. And take care not to fill all the small gaps, those gaps help in making the dosa more crispier.
- Drizzle oil ( ghee or butter ) to the sides.
- Cook the dosa on medium flame.
- It doesn’t cook fast like normal dosa, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to get color & crispy texture.
- Once it is done, remove from girdle.
- Hot rava dosas are ready to eat.
- Yummy Rava dosa is ready to enjoy.!
- Adding onion to the hot skillet before pouring the batter, acts as non-stick agent & it will be easier to take the crispy rava dosa easily from skillet.
- You can also pour the batter first in the skillet and then sprinkle the chopped onion on top of it, this tastes great too..!
- If you like to have plain Rava Dosa, skip the step of adding chopped onion to the batter.
