Introducing myself to Dosa….home made :-). I love Dosa and can have it anytime.For those who don’t know what Dosa is-Its a staple food of South India as well as in Sri Lanka. Rice is grounded thinly to form a batter-it can also be replaced with rice flour or semolina for a Rava Dosa.Dosa is usually served with sambar and coconut chutney as side dish and with potato as filling.However the side dish varies according to region or preferences and filling is also optional unless its masala Dosa. I remember when I was young whenever we went to restaurant I would only eat Dosa.I am a great fan of Dosa and Idli and so is my son.When my mother in law is around she always make it for me and she is awesome cook. Being inspired from her I decided to try my hands on one….probably the easiest one 🙂 ,”Rava Dosa”.Luckily it was good though not as yummy as hers..”Will work harder next time”-sentence learnt from my 3-year-old son who keeps repeating this whenever he does not want to do something :-). Ingredients Sooji/Semolin 1 cup
Rice flour– ½ cup
Maida- 1/2 cup
cumin seeds 1 teaspoon
Water-1 and half cup
Ginger a small piece chopped finely
Coriander leaves a few chopped finely
Hing a pinch
Salt to taste
1.In a Bowl,mix the rice flour, maida ,hing, rava,ginger,coriander,cumin seeds and add water and salt to it. The batter should be watery .
Heat the tawa (the tawa should be very hot while u are pouring the batter) and take one serving spoon of batter and spread on the tawa starting from the sides and finishing off in the middle as rava dosa cannot be spreaded like ordinary Dosa. Drizzle ½ tsp of oil and ¼ tsp of ghee on the sides. When it becomes golden brown turn it over.
Serve hot with sambar and coconut chutney or potato filling.
