How to make Rava Dosa: / South Indian Recipe:



Rava Dosa


Tasty & Crispy Rava Dosa:

Here’s a delicious, appetizing homemade Rava Dosa which is very easy to make...!!

This is much faster to prepare than the ever popular  South Indian Dosa,  and the batter does not have to be fermented for long. It makes an ideal choice to serve the sudden guests too !   

The dosas are very thin, crisp & light and is made with a batter of semolina, rice flour & all purpose flour in buttermilk.




Check out this easy & quick recipe to make the delicious  Rava dosa  with no hassles and without compromising on the taste..:)


Ingredients:


  • Sooji / Rava / Semolina             - 1 cup
  • Rice flour                                  - 1 cup
  • All Purpose Flour / Maida          - ½ cup
  • Cumin seed                               - 1 ½ tsp
  • Hing                                         - ¼ tsp
  • Peppercorns                             - ½ tsp
  • Fresh coriander leaves               - handful
  • Grated ginger                            - 1 tsp
  • Buttermilk                                  - ½ cup
  • Chopped onion                         - ½ cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil as required

Method:


  1. Add Rava, Rice flour & Maida flour in a wide bowl.
  2. Add salt and mix the ingredients.
  1. To this add cumin seeds, hing & coarsely grounded peppercorns.
  1. Add finely chopped coriander leaves & ginger.
  2. Combine together.
  3. Add buttermilk and combine.
  4. 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.

  1. Allow it to stand for 30 mins.
  2. Now add little more water and stir well.
  3. Heat a non-stick girdle.
  4. Keep the flame in medium low and sprinkle finely chopped onion on it.
  5. Now sprinkle the batter ( with hands) or with a spoon on top of sprinkled onion, in round shape.
  6. 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.
  7. Drizzle oil ( ghee or butter ) to the sides.
  8. Cook the dosa on medium flame.
  9. It doesn’t cook fast like normal dosa, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to get color & crispy texture.
  1. Once it is done, remove from girdle.
  1. Hot rava dosas are ready to eat.
  1. Serve with  coconut  chutney  or  any  chutney sambar  of your choice.
  1. Yummy Rava dosa is ready to enjoy.!

Note:
  • 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.
