We all love Rava Dosas, Don't we? Till about a few years back, I used to think that Rava Dosas taste the best only in restaurants. But my idea changed when I was pregnant with my little one. I suddenly woke up at midnight and had a craving for Rava Dosa. S was so sleepy but I dragged him to the kitchen to give me company while I search for the recipe online and make rava dosas too. (Must have seen his expression!!). 

So long story short, I successfully made rava dosa at the thick of night and forced S also to enjoy them! Strange are the cravings of a pregnant woman, don't you think? 

When I saw this entry in the 'Kid's Delight - Restaurant Recreation' event happening at Versatile Kitchen (thanks to Srivalli), I thought this is something which all of us at home would enjoy. So I volunteered to try this recipe courtesy - PJ. Rava Dosa reminded me of this incident and it surely made a great breakfast for all of us over the weekend. 

I pretty much followed the original recipe barring a few changes to suit our family requirements. The idea was to make it kid friendly and so no spices :) (But I shall put down the recipe here for my future reference) Here is how all 4 of us enjoyed..

By the way, these days my 9 year old is feeling very pampered and surprised as I am making too many things which she loves and getting the feedback also from her!!

Instant Rava Dosa

Ingredients - 

Rava/Semolina/Sooji Roasted 1 cup
Maida/All Purpose Flour 1/4 cup
Rice flour 1/4 cup
Curds/Yogurt 2 cups
Water 1 1/2 - 2 cups
Cumin Seeds /Jeera 1 tsp
Pepper Corns few (I used crushed pepper)
Coriander leaves chopped few (I didn't use)
Curry leaves chopped few (I didn't use)
Green Chillies chopped 1-2 (I didn't use)
Ginger finely chopped 1 tsp (Optional)
Onions finely chopped 1/2 cup (Optional)
Salt 3/4 tsp (or as per taste)
Oil a few spoons to spread on the griddle/tawa

Method Of Preparation - 

In a bowl combine roasted sooji, rice flour, maida , salt and mix well.

Whisk curds/yogurt and add to the above mixture.

Mix in pepper and cumin seeds. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile prepare chutney. (I made peanut chutney with less spice!)

The batter would be a little stiff now and so add 1 1/2 cups of water and stir well to get a watery consistency.

Instant Rava Dosa

Heat a griddle/Tawa. Pour a ladle full of batter in a circle from the edge to the center. Do not spread the batter with the ladle and do not fill the small gaps. Better still, sprinkle the batter to get a thin rava Dosa.

Drizzle a little oil around the edges. (I used very little oil by just spraying oil ). 

I added chopped onions now and pressed with a ladle so they don't fall off. (The usage of onions is optional). 

Cook till it turns crispy and the edges leave the griddle. It takes slightly longer to cook than the traditional dosa.

Gently flip it over and cook for about a couple of minutes. 

Fold into a semi circle / triangle and serve hot with a side dish of your choice.

Continue for the rest of the batter.

Preparation Time 40 min
Makes 10 medium sized Dosas
