Rava Dosa

Rava dosa our favorite breakfast,very easy to make them,its very popular in south India.My mother-in-law is an expert in making them,earlier I used to make rava dosa but this summer she taught me few tricks and my dosas nowadays are turning out super yummy.And here comes her recipe.

Rice flour - 4 tbsp
Semolina/sooji(upma rava) - 4 tbsp
Maida/All purpose flour - 1tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeera- 1tsp
Ghee - 2tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp(add according to taste)
Salt - Add according to taste
Onion - finely chopped 1/2 cup (optional)
The proportions always vary & few people use curd(can use it while mixing the batter),this is the version I prepare.

1.Mix rice flour,maida,rava,jeera,red chili powder,salt in a wide bowl and slowly add water and make a thin batter.Leave it aside for 10 min.
2.Heat the pan on medium high flame ,meanwhile take a small glass/ladle or container and mix the flour nicely .Once the pan is hot ,take one ladle full of batter and spread on the pan starting from the sides and finishing off in the middle , rava dosa cannot be spread like ordinary dosa.Add onions and cook.
3.Add little oil or ghee on the sides and let it cook until the sides of dosa start coming up . When it becomes golden brown flip it.

Hot rava dosas are ready to serve and athamma serves it with allam(ginger) pachadi and ghee.

Note: The pan should be very hot before making dosas.While pouring the batter you have to place the ladle at least 4-6 inches high from the pan ,so that the batter spreads evenly and do not try to fill in the holes in middle unless they are very big.
Adding cumin seeds gives a nice flavor.
