Rava dosa by Prash

Rava dosa is my favorite dosa. Not only because it tastes good but also it can be made instantly.

This is one of my instant foods.


Rice flour – 1 cup

Sooji( upma rava) – 1/2 cup

Maida – 1/4 cup

Green chillies – 4

Jheera – 1 tsp

Carrot grated -1

Coconut grated – 1tsp

Ginger – finely chopped

Curry leaves






To make the batter, mix rice flour, sooji, maida with water and add salt. Add enough water to make it dilute. Batter should be very dilute compared to normal dosa. Add jheera, grated coconut, grated carrot, green chillies, finely chopped ginger, curry leaves and kothmeera.

Heat the tava on high and sprinkle some water to make sure it is heated well. Once the tava is heated well, pour the batter on the tava to cover the whole tava. Add oil around the dosa, reduce the flame  to medium and let it cook.

Once the dosa becomes lil dry, turn it and let the other side cook. The trick to get good rava dosa is make sure the pan is hot when you add the batter and then reduce the flame to medium.

Once the other side is cooked well, fold the dosa and serve with coconut chutney.
