Onion Rava Dosa:Here is a delicious recipe of thin and crispy Rava dosa.When you don't have fermented batter ready, rava dosa comes to your rescue. There are many variations to the ratio of the three flours used in this dosa.To me, this proportion was the one found to be perefect.If you wish to satiate your appetite then get into the preparation right now!!!!!!
|2 cup||Rice flour|
|1 tsp||Salt(or to taste)|
|1 T||Cumin seeds|
|1 tsp||Pepper corns (crushed)|
|2 nos||Green chilli (finely chopped)|
|2 nos||Onion(finely chopped)|
|1 inch||Ginger (finely chopped)|
|1 strands||Curry leaves (finely chopped)|
|3 strands||Coriander leaves (finely chopped)|
1.Dry roast the Rava(semolina) for few minutes and keep aside.
2.Mix all the three flours(Rice,Rava and Maida)with water,curd and required qunatity of salt and keep aside.Basically the batter should be watery,relatively thin.For the above proportion of flour, 5 cups of water would be an approximate quantity.If u feel the batter is not watery,pls add accordingly.(Pld do not add the entire 5 cups of water in one go..Keep checking for the batter consistency and add accordingly)
3.Chop onions,ginger,green chillies,curry leaves and coriander leaves to a very fine consistency and add them to the batter and mix well .
4.Add crushed pepper and cumin seeds to the batter,mix well and leave aside for 1-2hrs.The longer it stays the more crisper it turns out to be.So for better results it's always good to prepare and keep the batter well in advance.
5.Heat the dosa tawa,mix the batter thoroughly and pour one laddleful of batter rapidly from outeredge to the center of the tawa either clockwise or anticlockwise.This batter cannot and shouldn't be spread as how we normally do for plain dosas.Add oil or ghee along the outer edge and allow it to cook.
6.Do not try filling the holes,they are the trade mark of Rava dosas.Once the top portion turns to golden brown color,carefully flip the dosa and allow it to brown on the other side too.
Serve the Onion Rava Dosa with coconut chutney or sambhar!!!!!!
1.Ensure that you mix the batter thoroughly before making each Dosa's b'se the flour would normally settle down and would turn thick.
2.If u feel the batter is not watery enough add little water and make it watery.If the batter is thick the Dosas wouldn't turn to a crispy texture.Incase if u still feel that the dosa is not crispy enough add 1-2tsp of rice flour,mix thoroughly and try again.The above given measurement is an exact one,incase if it doesn't turn out crispy then add rice flour or 1-2tsps of corn flour..
3.Since it's a Onion Rava Dosa,I have used 2 no's of onions.You can prepare plain Rava Dosas without adding onions too.
4.Prepare a Aloo masala and stuff them inside for Onion Rava Masala Dosa..
5.The measurement of cup size is approximately 250gms. (1cup-250gms)
