Rava Dosai

MM.. sounds yummy.. This is one of my favourite tiffin item. This is how I make rava dosa. The main ingredients are as follow:-
  1. Rice flour - 1 cup
  2. Coarse sooji (fine rava) - 1 cup
  3. Maida - 3/4 cup
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Butter milk - 4 tbsp
For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 1 tbsp
  2. Onion - 1/2 (if its big; 1 if its small) (finely chopped)
  3. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  4. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  5. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  6. Green chillies - 1 (according to taste)
If you want to make rava dosa for the evening tiffin, make sure you prepare the batter in the morning itself in order to get fermentation. Mix the above said ingredients with necessary water. The batter should be watery. Thats when we will get crispy dosas. When you are ready to make dosa in the evening, take a small pan, pre heat the oil and add mustard seeds when it splutters add cumin seeds, green chillies, asafoetida powder and onion to it and fry it till it turns in to golden brown. Now pour these into the dosa batter. Remember the batter should be really watery (thinner than the dosa batter). Take a dosa pan, and pre heat it. The pan should be really hot before spreading the batter. Now start spreading the batter from the sides and finish it off in the middle. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil on the sides of the dosa. Turn it over when it becomes golden brown. Some people may even use ghee instead of oil.
