How to make Rava dosa

  1. To prepare instant rava dosa, heat a non-stick tawa (griddle) and sprinkle a little water on it. It should sizzle immediately. Never use a roti/paratha tava to prepare dosa. Also, preferably make use of thick, heavy bottomed tava to prepare rava dosa.
  2. Wipe it using a muslin cloth.
  3. Pour ½ cup of the batter and tilt the tava in all directions so that it forms a thin circle. If you are not a pro at this, pour batter using a ladle or flat spoon to form the rava dosa slowly. Start pouring batter from the edges of the pan first and then come to the middle of the pan. The heated pan will create a net while pouring the thin batter into it and form our crispy rava dosa. The tawa must be super hot to get crispy rava dosa.
  4. Smear 2 tsp of oil on the sides and especially the tiny holes. Also, you can make use of ghee or butter to give a lovely flavour to our crunchy rava dosa.

  6. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 9 more suji ka dosas. Remember to stir the batter before pouring it over the pan each time. Sooji has a tendency to settle down at the bottom of the bowl so, always stir the batter before making your rava dosa.
  7. Serve crispy rava dosa hot with coconut chutney and sambhar.

Can I omit Maida and just use rava and yogurt?

   Maida is necessary for binding the mixture. You can replace it with rice flour if you wish to.

So for a vegan version, how much water should be added in total? Since yogurts has liquid, what would you substitute for that and by what quantity/amount? Thanks!

Great recipe...my pa-in-law was impressed. Thank you Tarlaji. Would like to add that sprinkling the water on the pan was key and enabled me to turn out restaurant-style dosas. I have never gone wrong with your instructions so far and now have your app as well to keep accessing your recipes. Thank you so much.
