  • Then add cumin seeds,pepper corns,Green chillies,curry  leaves, & coriander leaves. Now Mix well using a ladle. Give a standing time of 1/2 an hour.

  • Heat the tawa, when it is hot, smear little oil over the tawa, & rub with onions for  1 minute. Then take ladle of batter and pour it from the  edges, then fill the center part,as shown in the picture.drizzle some oil.

  • Then immediately sprinkle the onions.

  • Cook in medium flame, till the dosa  turns golden brown colour. It takes some time to cook.
  • When it turns golden brown colour,don't flip the dosa. just fold the dosa & remove it from tawa.
  • serve it with Coconut chutney,tomato chutney or sambar.

  • Make the batter thin like butter Milk consistency, to get crispy dosa.
  • If you feel batter is so thin, add rice flour accordingly.
  • If you feel batter is thick, adjust water according to consistency.
  • Mix the batter everytime, when you pour the batter on the tawa/skillet,while making Rava dosa.
  • Every time,when you pour dosa,check batter consistency, it may tend to thick, after few dosa's.Then adjust water accordingly.
  • Adding Ginger & coriander leaves gives nice flavour to dosa.
  • if you feel dosa is thick, dilute the batter with needed water to get lacy dosa's.
  • Instead of oil, adding Ghee to make dosa gives nice taste to dosa.
