About Rava Dosa

Rava Dosa is a thin, crispy crepe prepared by mixing rava/sooji, flour, spices & herbs with water to form a batter and then cooking it like dosa. Rava Dosa can be made in lot of variation like the traditional dosa – Ghee Rava Dosa, Onion Rava Dosa, Masala Rava Dosa, Ghee Onion Rava Dosa & so on. Rava Dosa makes the dinner special given its unique taste.

Ensuring the dosa pan is sufficiently hot makes the dosa not stick to the pan. Also keep in mind not to overheat the tawa as well. Allow the dosa to get crispier or tender based on the taste preferences of the family. Check out Wheat Dosa Recipe.

Making Rava Dosa

Making Rava Dosa is easy to make just like our regular dosa. Pouring the batter of rava dosa is a bit tricky but with practise you will get it perfectly. We do not spread the batter like in regular dosa for rava dosa we need to pour the batter in a drizzled way then just need to fill the holes with small portions of batter. No hassle in getting perfect round shape. Rava Dosa is usually prepared for dinner at homes given the time it takes to cook.

Rava Dosa – How to handle the time it takes to cook?!

Rava Dosa is a quick and easy dosa variant when it comes to batter preparation as it does not require any grinding or fermentation of the batter like traditional dosa. However Rava Dosa takes bit of time to cook and get crispy. The simple solution is to make Rava Dosa with 2 dosa pans simultaneously. This saves lot of time and also helps us to feed the family without allowing waiting time. You can use the same technique for traditional dosas too! 

Rava Dosa Batter : No fail proportion

Rava Dosa Batter preparation given in this recipe is an age old proportion that I adopted from my mom, who is an expert in making dosa and rava dosa in particular. Mix 1/2 cup rice flour, 1/2 cup rava, 1/4 cup maida along with herbs adn spices and water.

Rava Dosa ingredients

  • Rava / Sooji / Semolina: I have used store bought rava (hard wheat / semolina) for this Rava Dosa Recipe. Use upma rava the fine variety, but no need to roast the rava.
  • Flour : Add rice flour and maida. The traditional recipe uses a mix of rava, rice flour & maida. However for a healthy version, we can replace maida with wheat flour too!
  • Spices & Herbs : Onion, ginger, green chilli, jeera pepper, cashews, hing, curry leaves and coriander leaves are added.

Serving & Storage Suggestions

Serve hot Rava Dosa with sambar, coconut chutney and podi as side dish!

For later use, store the batter in refrigerator & it keeps good till next day. I usually make the batter just prior to making of the dosa but if there is any leftover you can keep the remaining batter for next day use (keeping it refrigerated).

Variations

Try the following variations of Rava Dosa at home :

  • You can replace ghee for oil while making the dosas.
  • You can even sprinkle finely chopped small onions on the dosa for Onion Rava Dosa.
  • Spread potato masala after the rava dosa is slightly cooked to a Masala Rava Dosa.
  • Use combination of Ghee, Onion, Masala for specialised versions of Rava Dosa.
