rava dosa

  • Chop onion to fine thin slices.Finely chop the green chilli too.
  • Take a bowl and add Rice flour,Rava and Maida.Add salt and all the other ingredients.
  • Add enough water and mix well.Batter should be thin like butter milk.
  • Heat a tawa and when it is hot,Take a ladle of batter and start pouring the batter forming the outer circle first and filling the center.
  • Add little oil over the dosa and keep the flame in medium low and cook till it turns golden.Now just flip to the other side and cook for few seconds and transfer to a plate.
  • Always mix the batter well before making each dosa.
  • The batter tends to thicken so add little water to get the right consistency.
  • You can add pepper corns to the batter.
  • Don't use the ladle to spread as we do for regular dosa.Just pour and it forms lacy pattern.
