Quick Onion Rava Dosa

If you have a penchant for a crispy breakfast delight…read on.

Roughly, translated it would be a savory semolina pancake, a quick version of dosa, as compared to the traditional fermented version. An alternative dosa recipe, perfect for those weekend mornings when a lot of us would rather laze in front of our television than spend time in our kitchen.

Thin and crispy dosa is a breakfaster's delight


1 cup rice powder
1 cup semolina
1/2 cup AP flour
Ground ginger
Dash Heeng/asafetida
Green chillies, chopped fine
onion, sliced
Optional (cilantro/curry leaves)


Make a very thin batter of pouring consistency.
Heat and grease a non stick griddle over a medium heat.
Pour one ladleful of batter onto the griddle in a fine stream to create a network sort of, starting from outer rim and gradually moving inwards with loads of patience, or you can sprinkle the batter with your hands. Believe me, it works!
Drizzle some oil around the sides and on top of the dosa.
Flip over and fold when golden and crispy.
Serve hot with date chutneyand podhi (dry chutney powder) and enjoy your dosa in a jiffy.
