This dosa is also referred to as onion rava dosa or sooji dosa in common terms… This kind of rava dosa can be made in various ways and today here in this post I am sharing one of the various ways of making rava dosa.
When we are making rava dosa batter, we can’t prepare it as we make the batter for a regular dosa recipe which requires soaking the dosa batter ingredients, blending them into a paste and then fermenting it for many hours…
It can just be prepared instantly if the main ingredients like rava, rice flour, maida, curd are available at home. This batter need not be soaked as a regular batter and can be easily given to kids as their breakfast recipe or as an instant evening snack recipe.
We have to be careful while making the batter since this is a dosa batter and the batter has to be made of thin consistency which can be easily dropped on the tawa. This is not a regular dosa batter which can be easily spread on the tawa in circular motion.
Since this is an instant batter, we make a very thin batter using water and curd and has to be of pouring consistency which can be easily taken in a ladle and dropped on the tawa. This dosa batter can’t be spread on the tawa and never attempt to spread it.
