rice rava dosa recipe | instant rice rava dosa | no fermentation semolina rava dosa | with 20 amazing images.

rice rava dosa is a South Indian rice rava dosa, a really tempting variant of the regular dosa, which does not require any grinding or fermentation.

rice rava dosa is made of a batter of rice flour and semolina, tempered with onion, coconut and cashew. This quick and easy no fermentation semolina rava dosa can be made on any day for breakfast or as a snack.

The tempering gives instant rice rava dosa a nice mouth-feel, and makes it really flavorsome and delectable. Just make sure you serve the South Indian rice rava dosa hot and fresh because it is not so appetizing when it gets cold.

Notes on rice rava dosa recipe. 1. To prepare the batter for instant rice rava dosa, in a deep bowl take rice flour. Rice flour helps in binding together all the ingredients and also, help in achieving that crispy texture. You can even make use of refined flour as a substitute. 2. The batter must have a pouring consistency to be able to spread easily on the pan. It should literally be watery and as thin as buttermilk. If you are not making the semolina rava dosas immediately, the rava will absorb the water so, adjust the consistency and then make the instant rice rava dosa. If the batter is too thin, it will surely stick to the pan and form limpy dosa. In that case, add 1-2 tbsp of rice flour to the batter. 3. To prepare rice semolina dosa, heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it lightly with oil. This is to season the pan and prevent our semolina rice dosa from sticking to the pan. Sprinkle little water on it. 4. Wipe water off gently using a muslin cloth. Never use a roti/paratha tava to prepare dosa. Also, preferably make use of thick, heavy-bottomed tava to prepare rice rava dosa.

Tips on semolina rice dosa. 1. Pour ½ cup batter evenly on the tava (griddle). 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 rice rava dosa. The tawa must be super hot to get crispy rice rava dosa. 2. Smear 1 tsp of oil on the dosa especially the tiny holes. Also, you can make use of ghee or butter to give a lovely flavour to our crunchy rice rava dosa.

rice rava dosa goes really well with chutney and sambhar.

You will also love other dosa variants like Sada Dosa and Moong Dal Dosa.

What are Dosas?

  1. Simply put, the Dosa is a pancake. One of the most popular snacks in all of South India, over time it has become popular all over the country and globally too. Dosa is made by spreading a batter on a hot griddle and cooking it with a little oil, or sometimes even no oil, till it turns golden brown and crisp. While most people use a non-stick tava these days, you can also opt for a traditional iron tava, which will enhance the taste as well as give you a nutrient boost. The basic Dosa batter is made of rice and urad dal. The ingredients are soaked, ground into a fine batter and allowed to ferment for 8-10 hours. The Dosa can be enhanced by topping the dosa with spice powders like the Idli Milagai Podi or other ingredients like roasted coconut, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, etc., while it is still cooking. 
  2. Slight variations in the batter or cooking procedure yield marvelously different results. Take for example the famous Benne Dosa of Karnataka. A little puffed rice is used while making the batter, the dosa is cooked with butter, and only on one side without flipping. You get a spongy dosa with one side that is absolutely crisp and golden-red. The aroma of butter simply kills your will, and makes you succumb to the temptation! 
  3. There are also dosas made with other combinations of cereals and lentils such as the PesarattuMoong Dal Dosa or Adai Dosa. The Neer Dosa of Karnataka is a lesser-known gem, which is definitely worth trying. You can make dosas with a mix of different grains like brown rice, nachni, sanwa, and so on. Instant dosas like Rava DosaRice Rava DosaInstant Oats Dosa and Buckwheat Dosa can be made in a jiffy by simply mixing readymade ingredients into a batter that is ready to cook. You do not have to ferment these batters. So, they are just perfect for hurried mornings, when you have not planned for breakfast the previous night. 
  4. Dosas are made even more exciting by stuffing them with awesome fillings. The most classic example of this is the Mysore Masala Dosa, which is lined with chutney and packed with potato bhaji. You can be creative with the stuffing, and throw in just about anything you want, from paneer to spinach. Try the Stuffed Sprouts Dosa and Stuffed Wheat Dosa. Delight your kids with the Stuffed Dosa Cones or Chocolate Dosa when they come home from school! 
  5. Dosas are usually served with Sambar and one or more chutneys. If the dosa itself is elaborate and spicy, go for a mellow chutney like Coconut Chutney. If it’s a plain dosa, go for something peppier like the Tomato Chutney or Coriander Chutney.  A very versatile category of snacks, Dosas can be made with varied ingredients, in varied forms and to suit anybody’s individual preferences. Check our collection of dosa recipes. So, do give it a try!
