ரவா தோசை / Instant Rawa Dosa / Crispy Semolina(Sooji) Crepes – Restaurant Style Dosa Recipes



This is my mother's favorite dosa and mine too. If we go to any restaurant, the first thing we order is Ghee Roast, Paper Roast or Rawa Dosa. We used to make fun of amma for this, but she never cares about anything other than digging in straight away. We make rawa dosa at home often, My version is so quick and instant, that is how I like my food, "FAST & INSTANT".


 This version of dosa is modified from a hotel called arya bhavan here. It turns out so crispy and thin and tasty.  The meaurement I have given is perfect for a crispy dosa..But if you want a soft dosa, you can increase the amount of maida in this..But I recommend this quiantity because traditionally rawa dosa's are meant to be crispy..You can serve this with coconut chutney and sambar..They taste great even with tomato chutney..There is another version of rawa dosa where they stuff masala inside the dosa..Will post that recipe soon..




This is my last recipe for this weeks BM, will see you all in another week soon..I hope you will love it for sure ...I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 7 under the theme Seven Days of Dosa Recipes. 

Ingrediants:

Rawa / Sooji / Semolina – 1 cup
Maida / All Purpose Flour – 1 cup
Rice Flour / Arisi Mavu – ½ cup
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Oil for pan frying

For Seasoning:
Oil- 1 tblspn
Mustard Seeds / kaduku – 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam – 1 tsp
Whole Pepper – 1 tsp
Green Chilli – 2 chopped finely
Curry leaves – 1 spring
Ginger – 1 tblspn minced
Onion –  4 tblspn finely chopped
Coriander Leaves / Cilantro – 5 tblspn finely chopped

Method:

Add maida, rice flour, rawa, salt in a mixing bowl. Add water and make into a very thin batter.Set it aside for 15 mins.

Now make seasoning. Heat oil , add mustard, cumin and pepper and sauté for a min.

Add in ginger, curry leaves, green chilli, onion and mixwell. Saute for a min.

Add this to the batter. Add coriander leaves too and mix well.

Heat a non stick tawa and pour couple of ladleful of batter from a height so that it forms small holes in this. Don’t Spread the batter..Just pour it thinly here and there.

Drizzle some oil and let it cook for couple of minutes or till it turn golden. Flip over and cook for a min.

Remove and Serve.

Notes:
1)      Make the batter very thin so that while you make the dosa it forms thinly.
2)      You can sprinkle the batter on the tawa using your hands so that it forms holes evenly.
3)      Pour the batter from a height so that holes will form on the dosa..Don’t spread the dosa.
4)      Mix well before making each dosa..Adjust the consistency of the batter by adding more water if it gets thick as it stands  by.Thinner the Batter crispier the dosa..
5)      Add more rice flour or maida if the dosa sticks to the pan.

Pictorial:

You are making my mouth water - First had it in my hostel in Chennai. Did not like it much for some reason - tried it again after a few months and loved it so much so that would wake up in time for breakfast even though it was only served on Saturdays! :)

Believe me, if I was taking out those dosas, half of it would still be sticking to the tawa. so I usually make smaller dosas. Its an amazing skill to turn it over without breaking it.

Great yummy dosa.

Looks crispy and delicious. I also order rawa dosa often at restaurants, maybe because we get it hot from the tawa in the hotel, whereas, at home we have to make two or three for ourselves and eat it not so crisp afterwards. or eat standing at the stove with dosas hot from the tawa. :). Aah for the days when me and my sisters used to take turns making dosas for each other, hot hot from the tawa. Now I am waiting for my daughter to grow up :0

@SheelaRice flour gives the crispyness to the dosa. You can use couple of ladleful of dosa batter.
