Rava Dosai

Post # 12

Serving Size: 3-4
Posted by: Anu

Rava/sooji - 1 cup
Maida/all purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Water - 2.5 cups
Onion - 1 medium (finely chopped)
Small Indian green chilis - 3 (thinly sliced)
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Heeng powder - 1 pinch
Salt - to taste

Mix ingredients 1-3, add water (rava dosa is usually thin and crispy so more water is good!) and the remaining ingredients. The batter is ready, pour the desired amount on a pre-heated tava (set on medium), you don't have to spread the batter for a rava dosa, the procedure is kinda reversed here, you pour about 1-2 ladles starting from the outside making sure it all comes together into one round (or whatever shape it is that you like!!) piece!!!


  • Here's a video of a "chef" making rava dosa. Yeah, that's how runny the batter can be but I try to keep it a tad bit thicker than this so I don't really have to use my hands to make the dosa!!! (am sure you will ENJOY the video!!!)
  • Mix the batter well before you pour it on the tava every time, the solids always tend to settle to the bottom of the container.
