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.

Rice flour - 1 cup(fine)

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)

Kesari Bath is a famous sweet in South India. In Bangalore its one of fast moving breakfast with a combination of Upma or Karabath. I have had this in most of marraiges for breakfast in India.

Rava(Semolina/Suji) - 2 cups
Sugar - 2 1/2 cups (As per your taste you can reduce or add)
Water - 5 cups
Pineapple - 2 cups(Chopped finely)
Ghee(Nai) - 1 cup(you can add or reduce)
Pineapple essence - 1 tspn(Optional) I have not used
Cashews/Raisins - 2 tspns fried in ghee.
Saffron colour - a pinch

Preparation Method

Roast the rava with 1/2 tspn ghee till its little brown.
In a thick bottom kadai/pan/wok keep hot water little less than that of making upma. Add pineapple, colour and 1 tspn ghee. Wait till pineapple is half cook.
Once its done reduce flame, slowly add rava and mix well without allowing to form lumps.
Once this is cooked add sugar and mix well.
Add leftover ghee and mix well. Wait till no water is left.
Garnish with cashews and raisins.

This can be served as it is or with Upma.

Tip - When water is boiling add 1 tspn ghee so kesari won't stick on the bottom of the kadai.

Life - The leftover can be had within 2 days even without storing in refridgerator.
