Rava dosa is everybody’s favoured South Indian breakfast. When dosa /idly batters ate not there at home, the immediate recipe comes to my mind is rava dosa. This is an effortless recipe but taste is very impressive. Using Just handy ingredients we can prepare rava dosa instantly without any fermentation. I’ve prepared rava dosa with rice flour, sooji(rava) adding few spices and greens. Here I present rava dosa with chutney powders and Andhra Gongura pickle. Njoy Cooking,Serving n Savoring!

1. Here in this recipe I have not added any maida flour. If you want to add maida, instead of one and half cup sooji use one cup sooji, half cup maida. But I prefer rava dosas with sooji only.

2. To get crisp rava dosas follow the above steps after frying dosas serve immediately.

3. I’m fond of banana leaves. While using banana leaves for serving, transfer the hot food directly onto the banana leaf. The banana leaves possess anti bacterial properties. When we transfer the hot food onto the leaf the anti bacterial properties infuse into the food. Banana leaf has sharp flavour and imparts great taste to the food. Above all its hygienic and eco friendly. It’s our tradition to serve food on banana leaf.image
