Now is the time when all our inner chefs are coming out on Instagram, noh? I think it’s a great opportunity to learn some life skills and experiment with it. If you too feel the same way and have started cooking your own meals, am sure you must be on a constant hunt for easy and quick recipes. And our girl Vidhi Doshi a.k.a. @ramenhairedgirl, like always, has come to our rescue by sending in her recipe for rava dosa. Read on to check out the full recipe with step by step images.
1 1/2 cups Rava
4 tbsp maida
4 tbsp rice flour
Salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of hing
5-6 torn curry leaves
4 tbsp finely chopped coriander
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 finely chopped green chillies
Ghee for cooking
Step 1: Mix together the rava, maida, rice flour and salt in a large bowl.
Step 2: Add 3 cups of water to this and whisk well till no lumps remain. Adjust the salt at this point as well.
Step 3: In a separate small pan, prepare the tempering. Heat 2 tbsps for oil and let it get hot. Add the cumin seeds to it and let them crackle.
Step 4: Now add a pinch of hing to the oil along with the torn curry leaves sauté for a few seconds. Add this tempering to the rava batter.
Step 5: Also, add the coriander and onion to the batter.
Step 6: I’ve added 2 finely chopped chillies as well but you can add less or more depending on how spicy you like it.
Step 7: Now add 2 1/2 cups of water and mix well. Cover the batter and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
Step 8: Mix the batter once again as the Rava and flour might settle at the bottom. After mixing check the consistency of the batter, it should be of a watery consistency. If it is not, then add a little more water.
Step 9: Now heat a dosa pan or a flat non-stick pan and keep the heat on medium. Once hot, splash a little water on the pan and if it sizzles, the pan is hot enough. Wipe the water off with a kitchen towel.
Step 10: Stir the batter every time before pouring it onto the pan. Pour the batter one ladle at a time onto the hot pan starting at the edges and slowly coming to the center. The batter should form immediate holes when put on the hot pan, if it doesn’t, then it isn’t hot enough.
Step 11: Once it cools a little, add ghee at the edges and a little in the center.
Step 12: Using a metal spatula carefully remove the dosa from the pan and eat hot!
