onion-rava-dosa-recipe
     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.

Onion rava dosa recipe

Indian Breakfast
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 5 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients

Semolina/ rava/ soooji  1/2 cup 
Rice flour  1/2 cup 
Maida  1/4 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 
Salt  As needed 
Sugar  1/4 tsp(for browning) 
Oil/ghee  as needed 

 

Method

  1. Take all the ingredients except onion in a bowl and mix water with it. Use a egg beater for easy mixing. Keep onions aside. The batter should be very thin of running consistency. Then only your dosa will come thin and lacy.1-rava-dosa 
  2. Heat a non stick dosa pan preferably. It should be really hot. Drizzle some oil and pour the watery batter, first to form a outer circle and then fill in the centre. Do not overlay. That is don’t pour over and over,just one layer. immediately top the chopped onions in a sprinkled way. Add a tsp of oil/ ghee over it. Let it cook in medium flame until the dosa browns to a golden colour. It takes some time in medium flame but be patient. If you cook in high flame you may not get the crispy dosa. So cook slowly in medium flame. Do not flip, just fold and serve hot.2-rava-dosa
Notes
  • There are few important things to keep in mind. The batter should be thin and watery enough. And after one or to dosas, the batter tends to get thick, add water and salt (very little) accordingly. Otherwise may not get the lacy holes in the dosa.
  • You can also try soaking the batter for 1/2 hour and then make the dosa, after 1/2 hour, sure the consistency of batter would have thickened, so use water to dilute more.
  • Proportion to easily remember is equal measures of rice flour and sooji and half the measure of maida.
  • Ghee adds a great restaurant touch to the dosa.
  • Even coriander leaves, ginger are important ingredients for the flavour. Needless to say pepper and jeera are main one.
  • No need to flip the dosa, since we cook slowly the dosa , as well as onion gets cooked.
  • Make an serve immediately one by one straight from the stove for great feedbacks from the eater ;)
  • As I said earlier, the onion can be sprinkled before pouring the batter, but sometimes-only sometimes, the dosa gets torn easily if we use more onions. Also the onion gets browned sooner than the dosa.
  • If your dosa is not giving lacy patterns, then add more water. Make sure the tawa is hot when you are pouring.
  • Non stick gives better lacy dosas.
    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 ;)

  33. Raks, am yet to watch your video. Lacy, crisp dosas :) I am sooji girl too :P And yes, they do sprinkle onions, drizzle oil and then add batter. A cook at HSB Mylapore once shared this.

    ReplyDelete
  34. absolutely grt recipe ... traditional recipes are always good and tasty..... One tip you can even try placing chopped onion,green chilli first on hot griddle followed by pour the batter and drizzle oil. This method I use to follow at home which tastes great and some hotel style... just thought of sharing with you...

  36. Very nice. I generally add the onions in the batter. Will try it this way. My proportion is also slightly different. 1 measure of rice flour and 1/2 each of sooji and maida. I will try your version and check the difference.

  41. Raks, we never make rava dosa at home. Jeev like rava dosa that too with extra onions so so much and always orders it first in the restaurants. I should definitely try this and will let know the results. Faintly.....very very faintly I remember my grandma doing this in her kitchen. But i've never tasted it at home.

  48. your recipes are really working out well, thanks to you..
    when i tried rava dosa, the dosa was sticking to the pan and not coming out easily and it was getting torn, what could be the reason for it?

    regards
    Amrita

    ReplyDelete
  49. Rava dosa usually comes out effortlessly without sticking to the pan. If its is sticking, either too much watery or mainly because of the pan. Are the other dosas coming out good in the same pan?

    ReplyDelete
  50. We tried this. This Dosa is really tasty. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  51. We tried this. This Dosa is really tasty. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  52. could u please specify water my dosa is so watery but rava sticks under bottom of the vessel, so in pan dosa is lacy send ur water measurement content for this recipes

    ReplyDelete
  53. I will try to update when I try next time. If its too watery, try adding a tblsp of rava, maida and some rice flour?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I tried 2 to 3 times with ur same recipe but it does not come crispy. Sticky dosa is my result. Pls specify the water measurement aswell. It would be very helpful for Onion Rava dosa lovers like me. Thanx in Advance.

  55. Raji, I just checked this recipe, an hour back..and the way you presented, tempted me to make this for supper..now am having it and its yumm!! thanks :)

  56. Hi Raki, I have been a frequent silent visitor to your blogs and have tried out a few recipes. I specially want to thank you for your recipe of this onion rava dosa which came out excellent and crisp. I had an unexpected guest at home today. As I am recently married and a new cook( experimenting only with my husband so far and trying out every new dish possible for him), was struggling to figure out what to offer this guest of mine, when i suddenly remembered your above recipe(which i had tried for my husband a couple of days back and found it easy and quick). I made the dosa and served along with a quickly made sambhar and corriander chutney. It tasted excellent and was super crisp. The best part is me being a south indian settled in the north, dosa and idlis are special items for the north indians. And today's rava dosa which was instant and easy, made me feel very proud and content of deciding and serving the right dish :) Thanks a lot!

  57. When I made the dosa the first time, it was crisp and within seconds became soggy. I realized that as i cooked in medium to high flame, the base of the dosa got cooked and upon removing from the flame the upper portion which was a lil wet made the dosa soggy in seconds. But this time, I cooked in low flame, rotating the tawa for heating the larger dosa, my dosa came out super crisp and remained so for a much longer time!!! Thanks once again!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Could you pls add the exact qty of water to be added.. My dosas were either too watery or holes werent getting formed.. :( I ended up making upma with the batter coz my dosas were disastrous! :D

    1. You should every time drizzle little oil or ghee before making this then only it would come out easily and also wont be dry. You can try using nonsitck pan. If you let the pan get heated so much without oil then too this will happen.

  70. Love the recipe. A couple of things that worked better for me - I tried roasted sooji and raw sooji (in the US you get both versions) and I like the roasted one better as it turns out more crispy. Also, I reduce the amount of maida from 1/4 cup to about 1/8 cup. I found that the maida was also making the dosa a little softer at least in the initial couple of dosas.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have been using this recipe off and on for a couple of years now and I really like it. My only comment is that the proportions are perfect for 2 hungry people. Everytime I forget and halve the proportions and it would be enough only for 1 person. And only today I realised that the sooji is soft semolina instead of the raw semolina :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi raks...im new to indian cooking. Planning to give it a shot tonight. Pls let me know if I can replace maida with atta.. thanks! :)

  74. Hi raji :-) I have tried almost all your recipes. Came out well. Yesterday tried your version of aval ladoo. It was excellent. My hubby liked it a lot. Now I have a doubt ! In onion rava dosa, should I have to add rava directly or have to fry it and then add? Previously when I did I just added directly and it gave a raw taste. So just help me with this.

    ReplyDelete

    1. No need to roast :) U add onions and ginger, so it will be good with raw rava flavour actually. If you want you can soak for an hour and then make.
