Steps to Prepare

Take a bowl and mix all the ingredients along with three flours and make a thin batter. Make sure there is no lumps in the batter.

Now heat a tawa or griddle(electric griddle is also fine) on medium high. Sprinkle few drops of water to check the tawa or griddle is hot. If the water sizzles the tawa is hot then. Wipe the tawa or griddle with few drops of oil.

Pour the batter with ladle on the skillet in a circular motion starting from the periphery to the center. Keep pouring the batter till it covers the whole skillet.(pour the batter on the skillet from about 3 to 4 inches height.

Don’t try to spread the batter otherwise the characteristic and appearance of Rava Dosa will not come. Rava Dosa should have holes like swiss cheese or have lacy look.)

Sprinkle few oil all over the dosa. Cook dosa on medium high untill it becomes golden brown. Remove the dosa from tawa or griddle and serve with cutney or sambar.
