Rava dosa made with dry fruits and nuts like cashews, almonds, pista, dates, tutti frutti, raisins. I heard this for the first time when we had our dinner at Hotel Sangeetha at Chennai. Everything was really tasty there. Though it was crowded, it was worth waiting for a while. I forgot what we had, but this one was really fancy and tempting for me that catch my attention. I always love kashmiri naan, so this one also I expected would be nice and tried it. I have tried with my instant rava dosa recipe, but you can adapt my soaking version rava dosa or your own rava dosa recipe and just add these dry fruits and nuts. Kids would definitely love this. I like it on sweeter side, so added dates, raisin and tutti frutti more. I never saw or tasted this dosa when we took this for take away for my BIL, so I made it with my imagination. Next time I should try this dosa and see how it is in the restaurant. I am not sure if the dry fruits and nuts are mixed in the batter or sprinkled on top of the dosa, but I mixed with the batter. Also not sure about adding onion. I thought it will be nice without onion, so avoided it. Do try this for your kids as evening snack, it will be quite filling for the hungry kids after school. Also it will be fancy for them Happy.
