4. Heat tawa spread oil , pour the batter in the outer in to a circle, so that it spreads in the inner sides.

5.Add oil over it and turn it the other side. wait till it gets crispy.

Rava dosa (Instant version):


               Mine is a fata - fat version,if you feel like eating rava dosa,this comes handy, and taste wise no compromise also!!

The differences between the two are the soaking part and the ratio of the ingredients....

But as  both I have tasted,they are equally good...:)

I always use little ghee for making rava dosa,as it gives a restaurant kinda flavour!!! And I don't flip the dosa,as it gets cooked easily.

              You can find the recipe,exactly here.

  29. hi
    can i hv Ur rava dosa recipe

  30. rev,
    My dosa's recipe :

    1/2 cup rava
    1/2 cup rice flour
    1/4 cup maida
    Pepper and jeera 1 tsp each
    1/2 tsp sugar(optional-for getting a golden brown colour)
    Chopped ginger(optional) and coriander leaves.
    If you want you can top the dosa with onion after you pour on tawa.
    Just mix the ingredients with water,let it be on a runny side, heat a non stick pan preferably till it fumes,drizzle oil/ghee,pour the batter in it,first outer fill towards the inner side. Just pour only once,dont layer.
    Since the tawa is very hot the holes will be formed as shown. cook in medium or medium low flame. Donot flip,add oil/ghee over it and add onions if desired.
