Instant Rava Maida Dosa

Instant Rava Maida Dosa
An instant dosa/crepe made of Semolina and All purpose flour which does not require soaking or fermentation.  A quick fix for breakfast or a light snack.

Rava/Sooji/Semolina - 1/2 cup
Maida/All Purpose Flour - 1/2 cup
Onions (Finely chopped) - about 1/2 cup 
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Green Chillies - 2 
Water - about 2 1/2 cups

How to prepare Instant Rava Dosa:
  • Finely chop onions and medium chop green chillies.
  • Mix Rava, Maida, onions, green chillies, water and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • For tempering/tadka, heat oil and add mustard seeds.  When mustard seeds splutter, turn off the heat.  Pour this tadka to the dosa batter.  The consistency of the batter is thin.
  • Heat a cast iron griddle or a nonstick pan.  Grease the pan with cooking spray or few drops of oil.  Pour a ladle full of batter and swirl the pan so that the batter spreads evenly.  Roast both sides of the dosa to golden brown, drizzling few drops of oil.  Roast the dosa longer to make it more crisp.  Serve Instant Rava Maida Dosa with coconut chutney or a curry.
  • You can use Whole Wheat Flour instead of Maida.  Add little sugar or more green chillies to suit your taste.
