Rava Dosa

Hello friends, hope u all r doing soo sorry for nt posting regularly nw a daz...:('
actually my son who is now 1.10yrs old, needs my attention a lott, and i cdnt see his sad face, so i enjoy my time with him nw and thats the reason nt able 2 blog n a regular basis...thats why i decided not to continue any more with one of my fav events i.e; Blog Hop Wednesdays...though i enjoyed a lott during the 1st season, i cdnt able to do so now...So this is my last post for that event, and this post is the one which i missed in 6th week's Blog Hop, where my pairing was with Harini of Tamalapaku, who has a nice blog with so many mouthwatering delicacies..after going through her posts, i decided upon this Rava Dosa, as its a fav of mine and i wanna try it for long...Whenever i went to restaurants, i jumped upon this rava dosa, and ordered it everytime...its a very tasty and easy to make dosa, and thanx to Harini and Radhika, i learned this recipe now...and can make it at home anytime i friends, lets go to the recipe and enjoy this yummy food..:-)


1 Cup Roasted semolina/rava/sooji
1/4 Cup All purpose flour/maida
1/4 Cup Rice flour
2 Cups Curd - Whisked
1 1/2-2 Cups Water
1-2 Green Chillies - Chopped
1 Cup Chopped Onions
1 tsp Finely chopped ginger
Few chopped curry leaves and coriander leaves
1-2 tsp roasted (cumin+dry red chilli) powder
Salt to taste


In a bowl take rava, maida, rice flour, curd, roasted (cumin+dry red chilli) powder and salt to taste.
Mix the above properly and keep it for 10-15mins like this.
The batter will be lil stiff after 10-15mins, so add  as much water needed and stir well to get a watery consistency.
Add chooped onions, gingers, green chillies and chopped leaves to the batter and mix well.
Heat a tawa/griddle, pour a spoon full of batter in a circle from edges to the center.
Do not the spread the batter and do not fill the small gaps in between.
We hav to remember that rava dosa is very thin, so take as much batter needed and try to make a thin rava dosa...
Drizzle lil oil around the edges and cook till it turns crispy and the edges leave the griddle.
It takes slightly longer to cook than the traditional dosa..
Gently flip it over and cook for some more time.

Fold it into a tringle or any shape of ur choice..
Serve hot with chutney or any side dish of ur choice...enjoy...:-)
