Rava dosa (Instant version):
Mine is a fatafat version, if you feel like eating rava dosa,this comes handy, and taste wise no compromise also.
The differences between the two are the soaking part and the ratio of the ingredients….
But as both I have tasted,they are equally good 🙂
I always use little ghee for making rava dosa,as it gives a restaurant kinda flavour. And I don’t flip the dosa,as it gets cooked easily and keeps the dosa crispy.
Equal amount of Rava, rice flour and half the amount maida. If you want you can add wheat flour in place of maida. Add cumin, black pepper, coriander, curry leaves and salt. Make a runny batter and pour on hot tawa. Cook in medium flame after you pour dosa on tawa. Takes long time to cook, yet turns crispy.
