ABOUT Instant Rava Dosa RECIPE

Among all varieties of dosa, rava dosa is an instant version of dosa which is very easy and quick to make. This dosa batter does not require any soaking, grinding or fermentation like the normal traditional dosa batter. So you can easily make crispy dosa with rava in no time for breakfast. Basically the main ingredients of the rava dosa are rice flour, all purpose flour and semolina or rava or sooji. So the name of the dosa is according to one of its main ingredient, rava or semolina. The batter can be made with water / thin buttermilk. If you are in a hurry and don't have time to soak the batter for 15 minutes, then always prefer to use thin buttermilk instead of water. The batter should be very thin as of running consistency. Crispiness of dosa depends upon the consistency of the batter. So thinner the batter, crispier the dosa. Also the temperature plays a vital role for making the crisp dosa. Though it will take time, still always prefer to cook the dosa on medium flame. Rava dosa batter has to be poured on the pan or tawa from certain height (3-4 inch height over the pan). This pouring method helps in the netted texture of the dosa. Here I have added finely chopped onions which can be omitted too. This type of dosa is one of the easiest recipes which is more delicious and enjoyable by all age groups.
