I already have a rava dosa post with two different recipes. But wanted to make it as onion rava dosa and with videos. So I thought of blogging this. Did I tell you I love anything and everything made out of rava/ semolina /sooji ? Be it kesari or upma or kichidi I love like anything. I have been brought up eating different upmas for dinner, delicious, hot wonderful tasting upmas mom makes! Especially I love the rava upma she makes.
Rava dosa is one I learnt making only after I started exploring the blogging world and got hooked to the recipe from Prema’s cookbook. It always comes out perfect and gives me a relief if I run out of dinner ideas for Aj. It is instant version which calls for no soaking time…that's the best part! He is not very fond of rava dosa, but still he is okay with it. He is like Vj. He is not big fan of rava upma, but thank god he likes rava dosa at least! So here is the way I make onion rava dosa. In restaurants I think – ‘I think’ first they sprinkle the onion on the tawa/ dosa pan first and then pour the batter over it, not sure…but I do this way. Both works for me and turns out good. So its your choice.
Ingredients(makes 7-8 dosas)
|Semolina/ rava/ soooji||1/2 cup|
|Rice flour||1/2 cup|
|Ginger, finely chopped||1 tblsp|
|Green chillies||1, chopped|
|Whole black pepper||2 tsp|
|Jeera||1 tsp, heaped|
|Onion||1, finely chopped|
|Coriander leaves,chopped||1 tblsp|
|Curry leaves||1 sprig, torn|
|Sugar||1/4 tsp(for browning)|
Serve hot immediately with sambar and chutney the best combo. Hope the video helps the beginners a bit. I took it with my iPad :) Please bear with the shaky and out-of-subject – times in the video :) Making video myself while making the dosa is sure a challenge :) Next time have to bring Vj for help ;)
