Rava dosai / Semolina Dosa

My hubby is a great fan of Adyar Ananda Bhavan’s onion rava dosai. He loves that crispy ghee-y flavor of the rava dosas and goes on praises whenever he has one. I was sure that I will not be able to replicate their ever famous recipe but atleast giving a go at it will not doom me. After lots of googling, I landed up on the ever reliable Vahrehvah’s site and was confident to take up and execute the recipe. It was not upto the mark set by Adyar Ananda Bhavan but was yummy for homemade rava dosas.

~*What U Need*~
Rava/Sooji – 1 cup

Rice flour – 1 cup

Maida/all purpose flour – ¼ cup

Butter milk – 4 cups

Ginger – 1 tsp (minced / grated)

Green chillies – 3 (chopped)
Pepper corns – 1 tsp
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Chopped coriander leaves – 2 heaped tbsps

Salt – to taste
Ghee/Oil

How I Made it:
Dry roast the pepper corns and cumin seeds. This will release the flavors/oils in it.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients into a thin batter.

Heat the dosa kal / griddle to maximum temperature. You should see fumes coming out of the griddle.
Pour the batter like sprinkles working from the outer area towards the centre. Pour ghee/oil around and in the center of the dosa. Turn over when brown and fry till brown on the other side too...

Make sure that u connect the batter so that it forms a dosai.. You will gain experience once you try one or two dosais.

Serve with chutneys of ur choice. A simple coconut chutney itself will go ways…

  18. Dear Vimitha
    How are you? You are absolutely right ! The Vahrevah video is the best on crispy Rava dosa. After numerous failure I had given up making this. But now I can make it confidently. The non sticks are no good , so i also have a dosa tawa of thick steel.
    Your posting is a great reminder , time to make this awesome dish.
    Your photos are very nice.
    Have a nice day
