Rava Dosa & Coconut-Corriander Chutney

Rava Dosa is one yummy dosa & to get it nice & golden & crisp with those numerous holes is a hard thing. My initial trial at these were a big flop…. Tried all the zillion mixes we get in stores only to land up in a gooey dosa! What a disaster I thought & totally gave up until now.

I was all again geared up to try it out again, especially since this is my definet order for BF at any restaurant. My Dad told me he had it at his friend’s place & it was so great. He got the proportion & inspired me to try. I did & it turned out fantastic! We just loved it .


Rava – 1 cup
Maida – 1 cup
Rice Flour – 1 cup
Curd – 1 tbspn
Water – 6 cups
Salt – 3 tsps
Jeera – 1 tsp
Pepper – few
G.chillies – 2 (finely chopped)
Curry leaves – few (finely chopped)
Corriander Leaves – few (finely chopped)


1. Measure & put all the Ingredients in a large bowl & mix well. Make sure there are no lumps.

2. Keep aside for 45mts to an hour. It wil be a watery batter, do not worry.

3. Heat a dosa pan to a high temp & pour with a ladle slowly. Put oil on side & cover & cook. Takes 3-4 mts…then turn & cook other side too.

Serve with chutney or sambhar .I served them with coconut-coriander chutney.

Yummy Rava dosas are ready… with a cup of filter coffee…a delicious BF is ready & what a way to start the day !!



Coconut – 3 tbspns
Corriander Leaves – a hand full
G.Chillies – 3
Ginger – 1” piece
Salt – to taste.


1.Grind all the Ingredients to a smooth paste using little water.

2.Season with oil, mustard seeds, udad dhal & curry leaves.

A delicious chutney is ready to be served!

That picture makes me want to try it right away. Really crispy looking dosa..Is it ok to use ordinary dosa batter with the rava? I wish to avoid maida, so would atta and rava give me a good rava dosa? I have never tried this at home! Love the chutney:-)
