Rava dosa is a crispy and delicious South Indian breakfast dish that is perfect for a weekend brunch. Here are the steps to make rava dosa on Trilonium cast iron tawa:
- 1 cup semolina (rava)
- 1/2 cup rice flour
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
- 1 green chili, finely chopped
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- 2-3 cups of water
- Salt to taste
- Oil or ghee for cooking
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the semolina, rice flour, all-purpose flour, cumin seeds, crushed black pepper, green chili, onion, coriander leaves, and salt to taste.
- Slowly add water to the mixture and whisk until it forms a smooth and thin batter without any lumps. The batter should be of pouring consistency, similar to buttermilk. Set it aside for 10-15 minutes.
- Preheat the Trilonium cast iron tawa on medium-high heat for a few minutes.
- Once the tawa is hot, stir the batter well and pour it onto the tawa with a ladle. Start pouring from the edges and work your way towards the center. Do not spread the batter, let it spread by itself.
- Drizzle oil or ghee on top and cook on medium-high heat until the edges start to turn brown and the surface is crispy.
- Using a spatula, loosen the edges and lift the dosa from the tawa. Fold it in half and transfer it to a plate.
- Repeat the process for the remaining batter, stirring well before pouring each time.
- Serve the rava dosa hot with coconut chutney, sambar, or any other dipping sauce of your choice.
