Rava Dosa

Cooking time : 10 mins (for single dosa)

Rava Dosa is the tastier dosa. Its preparation takes only few mins and is crispy too. We need to prepare the mixture an hour ago or even instantly. Though it takes more time to prepare on dosa tawa than ordinary dosa, it is worth enough for its taste.


To Marinate:
Maida/All Purpose flour  - 1 cup
Semolina Rava               - 1/2 cup
Rice Flour                      - 3 tsp
Water                            - As Required
Salt                                - To Taste

To Mix with the batter:
Onion                             - 1
Ginger                            - 1"
Curry Leaves                  - 2 strands
Coriander Leaves            - 2 springs
Pepper Corns                  - 1 tsp
Green Chillies                  - 4

  1. Marinate all the ingredients mentioned in "To Marinate" section for 1 hr. Chop Onion, Ginger, Coriander leaves, Green Chillies into small pieces.
  2. Add the ingredients mentioned in "To Mix with Batter"  and mix well.
  3. Heat the dosa tawa in medium flame and spill the batter in any shape(not like ordinary dosa). Spray oil in the top and on all the sides and cook till it becomes crispy in the first side and then turn the dosa. It will take 8 to 10 mins. Dont turn the dosa till it becomes crispy else it will break.
  4. Serve hot with Coconut Chutney and eat immediately. Children likes to have this with sugar.
  • Batter should be of watery consistent.
  • You can add 1 tsp curd while marinating so that the dosa wont stick to the tawa.
