Paper Rava Dosai!

Rava Dosa is my kids favourite, at home or at restaurant they usually orders this. But he doesn't like curry leaves in it. So I do not add them first once they finish eating then I add curry leaves as I love it in dosa. Try this delicious dosa.

Rava/Semolina/Sooji - 2 cups(chiroti/fine)
Rice flour - 1 cup(fine)
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Jeera - 2 tablespoons
Green chilli - 1no(As per your spice level)
Black pepper -1 tspn
Hing/Asafotida - 1/4 tspn
Water as required
Curry leaves few
Green chilli - 2nos(chopped)
Coriander leaves - 1 tspn(finely chopped)

Preparation Method
Mix all the ingredients in a vessel to butter milk consistency. Leave it for 1 hour.
Heat a non stick tawa/skillet, slowly pour the batter from side on hot tawa, you may not be able to spread like normal dosa.
You can add 1 tspn, gingelly or olive oil and cook. Turnover and cook both sides.(You can cook without oil also)

Paper Rava Dosa is ready to serve.

Serve hot with any choice of chutney.

Notes -
- You need pour batter in cup or ladle and not spread like normal dosa
- Dosa Kal/Tawa should be very hot then only you will get holes in rava dosai and crispy dosa
- You can mix night and keep the batter in fridge for morning breakfast or mix morning for making for afternoon tiffin.
- Instant also can make dosa but advise batter prepared in advance to get delicious dosa.

Masala Dosa with Batter recipe!

Dosa (Lenthil and Rice Crepes) is very famous Breakfast/tiffin in South India. Its popular not only among Indians but also liked by many foreigners too... When I was in Panama this was one of the favourite of Panamanians they love to eat Indian food... This is my favourite too and I love making dosas.....

Dosa Rice or Boiled Rice - 3 cups
Urad Dal - 1 cup
Bengal Gram(Channa Dal) - 1/4 cup
Toor dal - 1/4 cup
Rice flakes(Aval/Poha) - 2 tblspns
Fenugreek seeds(Venthayam/Methi seeds) - 1/2 tspn

Preparation Method
Wash and soak the above ingredients for about 5-6 hours in water and then grind to a fine paste.
Dosa Batter (Dosa Maav) has to be fermented for overnite or for about 4-5 hours.
While grinding do not add more water. Consistency should not be very thick and not very thin. It should be medium so its easy to spread on skillet(tawa/dosa kal)
Then Heat a pan either non stick or normal one.
Heat the pan in medium or low flame and spread batter slowly thick and thin. Put one tspn oil and close with a lid.
Check whether its well cooked thats it will be brown and crisp on the thin spread and dull white on think spread.

Masala dosa is always cooked one side (sometimes I slightly cook on the other side) Reduce flame. Place Aloo masala in the centre and close the dosa. (checkout the photos below)
You can even spread onion, garlic and red chilli chutney and put aloo masala.

Masala Dosa is ready to serve. It can be served with Coconut chtney / Sambar.

This Masala Dosa recipe is going for Dosa Corner Event hosted by Padma's Recipes and Show me your Breakfast by Divya Vikram.

Tips -
Heat the pan always in medium or low flame spread batter and then increase flame.
You can rub the pan with sliced onion.
Always make first dosa very small and then later dosas can be made big. Sometimes batter will stick.
When kept in fridge, keep the batter outside about 1/2 hour before making dosas, If the batter is chill then also you cannot spread the batter easily.
If you do not have so much time in grinding batter at home you can also buy ready to make wet dosa batter which is easily available in super markets.
