Rava Dosa

ravadosa

We all have eaten crunchy, paper like rava dosa. There are several posts on the web for Rava dosa. I changed the recipe for rava dosa quite a bit. Tried this twice at home and each time it was a super hit. So, here comes the recipe for Rava dosa. I was and am tired of eating Oats for breakfast every single day. So, this Sunday, it was Rava Dosa for a change. I see all recipes using All purpose Flour or Maida. I didn’t use it as you see in the ingredients list. It was crispy, it was delicious. This is a recipe for ages now.

Just a quick note, we don’t get super fine Rava here at least at my Indian grocery stores. I had brought a kilo of this from my last trip to India. Since there was some leftover batter, I made 2 dosas in the night also. It was still perfect. 

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup super fine Rava
  2. 1/4 cup rice flour –
  3. 4 tsp urad dal flour
  4. 1/4 cup yogurt
  5. salt to taste
  6. 1 tsp baking powder

Method:

  • Sieve Rava, rice flour and urad dal flour
  • Add it to a bowl, mix salt and yogurt.
  • Now add water and make sure it is of running consistency.
  • Just before preparing dosa, I added baking powder. For the millionth time, I have no idea when to use baking soda vs powder. I always use them interchangeably. ravadosabatter
  • Now heat a Griddle or Tava and make dosa. Don’t spread the batter like you do for normal dosa. The thinner the batter, the crisp the dosa gets. ravadosaontava
  • We ate with Chatni Powder. Plain and simple. ravadosa
