Instant Rawa Dosa

Instant Rawa Dosa

Dosa is a South Indian dish, which is basically a thin and crisp form of savoury pan cake. It's made with rice and washed black gram, which is soaked overnight and then grinded and fermented for 6 hours.
I love Dosas but don't like to get into lengthy process of soaking and fermentation so for lazy brats like me there is the quick fix  to dosas which Rawa Dosa. This is basically made with semolina/sooji and rice flour. So no fermentation and soaking required. 

Here I am sharing the process of quick/instant Rawa Dosa. This will give you perfect textured and crisp Dosa.

Ingredients( for 5-6 medium sized Dosa)
- 1/2 cup fine Rawa/semolina/sooji
- 1/2 cup rice flour
- 2 tbsp plain flour/ maida
- 2 cups water
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp cumin Seeds
- 1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
- 2 finely chopped green chillies
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- 2-3 tbsp oil

1. Take a bowl, add semolina, rice flour and plain flour. And mix them.
2. Add salt,cumin seeds, and chilli powder. And mix them well.
3. Now, little by little add water to the mixture. Do not add entire water at one go. Ensure there Are no lumps
4. Once water is mixed add green chillies and  coriander and mix everything well. And let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes.

Please note at this stage if you feel the batter is too watery, don't worry as we have intentionally kept it like this..:D

5. Now on medium flame heat a skillet/ tawa.
6. Without applying any oil/butter take handful of batter and sprinkle on the warm skillet. ( this is the actual trick to get that perfect netted Dosa). 
7. Sprinkle few drops of oil on the edges the Dosa . And wait till it cooks nicely till golden brown.
8. It will take some time to cook the Dosa. Once it's done, there is no need to flip it and cook from the other side as the Dosa is very thing and cooked nicely from both the sided with no flipping required.
9. You can serve the Dosa with desired chutney or sambhar.

Enjoy your crispy treat of yummy Dosa..:)
