Rava Dosa ~ Resturant Style!!!

Rava Dosa is my hubby's all time fav. Actually it runs in our family (My dad and FIL both love this dosa) and it is the most ordered item whenever we went to restaurants. I always wanted to learn the art of making crispy thin rava dosa at home. But I failed. In search of perfect recipe, I reached Asha's Aroma, The one place where you can get tried and tested recipes which give perfect results everytime. I left a comment on her dosa and was set out to try it. I was surprised when she left a comment suggesting me to try the recipe from Vahchef Sunjay Thumma. The recipe was perfect and we got golden crispy dosa's, The melt in the mouth kind. Thank you Asha for giving us a tried and tested recipe. Thanks to Vahchef too for posting this video on Youtube. Please check the video for exact way to pour the batter.
I used:
1 cup Semolina
1 cup Rice flour
1/2 cup All  Purpose flour
2 green Chillies,small peice of Ginger & few Coriander leaves finely chopped
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
Salt to taste
Procedure:
1) Mix all the ingredients with suffecient water to achieve Buttermilk like consistency. 
2) Heat a non-stick tava, and sprinkle the batter. It forms a nice lace like pattern. Do not bother to fill them completely.
3) Sprinkle oil and roast it on medium heat until lightly golden. 
Serve hot with chutney of your choice!

Yummy rava dosas Uj..I too follow vahchef's recipe often..they've come out well!!

konchady said...

Thank ujwal for the nice dosas.

When ever I am in a hurry & there is no time left for me to soak dals& rice &prepare batter the previous night, I go for rava dosa. I season the batter with oil+mustard+jeera+green chilli+curry leaves and also add chopped coconut pieces.
coriander leaf chutney goes well with this dosa.
Next time I'll try vahchef's recipe. His presentation & recipes are nice. I have already tried 2,3. Please check his mysorepak recipe.
