Rava(Semolina) Dosa with Coconut Chutney

Most dosa batters take a long time to prepare and also require pre-planning like soaking,grinding etc. Here's a recipe for Rava(Semolina) dosa which can be made in a jiffy !

You will need:

1 cup Peni Rava (Fine Sooji/Semolina)
1 cup Rice flour
1 cup Maida (all purpose flour)
3 tbsps yoghurt (slightly sour)
1” pc. Ginger (finely chopped)
3-4 green chillies (finely chopped)
Chopped corriander
Salt to taste
Water as required

  • Mix all of the above with water to form a thin consistency. Look at picture below.
  • Let the batter sit for atleast 30 minutes before making dosas. The longer the better.
  • Heat a non-stickpan. Apply oil. Pour a thin layer of batter on the hot tawa.
  • Cook on medium flame, uncovered to make a crisp dosa.
  • Serve hot with Coconut chutney (recipe follows).

Coconut Chutney:

You will need:
4 tbsps. Fried gram (hurgadle)
¾ cup fresh grated coconut
6 green chillies
Salt to taste
½ bunch coriander
Few sprigs Mint

Mint is my secret ingredient J just a few sprigs and it adds a whole lot of flavour to the chutney.

  1. Powder the fried gram in a blender.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend till everything comes together.
  3. Garnish with seasoning: Heat oil in a pan, add mustard, urad dhal and chana dal. Add curry leaves and a pinch of hing.

Try this and impress your guests in a flash! :)

  4. Hey Namratha, just came across your blog. Rava Dosa is indeed very convenient to make esp as a breakfast. All that I need to do is soak (which takes barely a couple of minutes) - and the making can happen while one is serving.

    these are two proportions that i use:

    Rava:Rice Flour: Maida
    1:1/2:1/2 (my amma's formula)

    1:1:1/2 (my mil's formula)

  5. :Akshmi, I use your MIL's formula too sometimes esp when I'm out of Maida! Try my recipe too, I'm sure you will like it. The youghurt adds more taste.
