Secret behind RAVA DOSA

Do you know the secret and success of Rava dosa?

When you have only less quantity of Idli batter or no batter at home and you want to make some light tiffins and you don't want to go for Chappathi's and Poori's the best recipe is Rava dosa.There are different versions in the measurements of riceflour, sooji and maida and I have tried many.Somehow I am comfortable with this version as it is quick and easy to make. It tastes delicious with sambar and chutney.


1. Idli batter - 1 cup (see Idli recipe for preparation or rice flour)

2. All purpose flour/Maida - 1/2 cup

3. Rava -1/2 cup

4. Green chillies - 3 finely chopped

5. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

6. Cumins seeds - 1 tsp

7. Curry leaves - few fnely chopped

8. Salt to taste

9. Onion -2


1. Chop onion into fine pieces and reserve.

2. Mix flours and rava with salt and green chillies.

3. Add enough water to get a semi-liquid consistency.

4. Saute mustard, cumin and curry leaves in 1 tsp oil and add it to the batter.

5. Heat the griddle/dosa pan .

6. Pour a ladleful of batter, and immediately spread it thin (trick is to use a low flame while spreading and then raising the heat). Spread a few drops of oil around the edges.

7. Sprinkle some onions on top and let it cook by coverng it with a lid.

8. fold it and serve hot with chutney or sambar.
