Rava dosa with Potato saagu

Rava dosa ingredients:

1/2 cup fine rava/soji/semolina
3 tblsp rice flour
i tblsp gram flour / besan
1 onion finely chopped
2 tblsp finely chopped coriander leaves
2 tsp chopped cashew nuts
salt to taste
2 cups water
Oil to cook dosa


  • Mix all the ingredients (except oil)  in a bowl and mix the batter well
  • This is the key element here (pls dont change the measurement  as it makes the perfect dosa all the time
  • Keep the batter for 5 mins
  • Batter looks like thin watery but that is how it should be 
  • Heat the dosa pan ,drizzle with some oil and spread it on tava with a tissue paper
  • Mix the batter properly and pour it when the pan is piping hot
  • drop in the batter from side of pan and then fill in the center
  • Just simmer the gas and cook dosa on a low flame
  • after 2 minsedges start getting crisp,only at that time you take the dosa
According to this recipebatter consistency will be very thin like neer dosa batter.Main thing here is before you pour the batter it must be mixed properly as rava has the tendency to settle down and leave the water up.Never try to pour extra batter to fill the holesas it makes the dosa thicker.
