Follow the same procedure for Ragi rava dosa batter. Add Ragi flour instead of rice flour here.

5. Cut the onions as finely as possible.

Making Instant Rava Dosa | Ragi Rava Dosa.

  • Heat the tawa (Nonstick or Cast Iron).
  • Check the dosa batter consistency as Rava absorbs water and batter becomes thick.
  • Add water if required.
  • On hot tawa apply oil and spread finely chopped onions.
  • Then pour the dosa batter and spread evenly.
  • Let the dosa roast on medium to high flame.
  • Usually flipping of dosa is not necessary while making Rava dosa, you can flip and roast the other side if you want extra crispiness.
  • Follow the same procedure for Ragi Rava dosa.
  • Serve hot with Coconut chutney, Sambar, Potato Bhaji or any other side dish. Or else the special Green Chili Rasam tastes great with these dosas.

Step by step recipe of Instant-Rava-Dosa-Ragi-Rava-Dosa-Green-Chili-Rasam

In a big bowl take one bowl Rava or Suji. I have used medium Rava, best suited for Rava Dosa


Wash Rava thoroughly and drain the water.


Add one bowl Rice flour, Curds and salt as per taste.


In a small kadai add two spoons of oil and tempering ingredients. and splutter them.


Pour the Tempering on dosa batter and give it a good mix. Rest the batter for fifteen minutes.


In another mixing bowl add rava and Ragi flour. Add curds and water and make the dosa batter.


In a kadai add two spoons of white sesame, Two spoons of grated dry coconut and half tea spoon jeera. And dry roast them till golden brown.


Take off the stove roasted ingredients and cool them completely.


Soak half spoon tamarind in water for ten minutes.


Take handful of washed and chopped coriander, four to five green chilis, Two spoons of jaggery, two spoons of roasted peanut powder.


Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste.


In a kadai add one spoon of oil. When it becomes warm add the tempering ingredients and splutter them.


Then add ground Green chili masala paste and give it a good stir. Add water and adjust the consistency. Bring it to a boil. Serve hot with dosas.


Heat the tawa and apply oil and spread chopped onions evenly on it.


Pour the dosa batter on tawa and spread evenly. Roast dosa on medium to high flame.


When dosa is roasted completely flip it to cook other side. Or else you can skip this step.


Follow the same procedure with Ragi dosa batter to make Ragi rava Dosa.


Serve hot with coconut chutney, Sambar, Potato bhaji or any other side dish of your choice. Green chili Rasam is also a best side dish for dosas.

Pro Tips:

1. Use bombay or medium rava only. If you use fine rava then dosa will become soft.
2. Even tough Rava dosa is Instant dosa, resting the batter for fifteen to twenty minutes is must.
3. Batter consistency should be watery like Neer dosa.
4. Make sure tawa is super hot before pouring the batter. After pouring batter on tawa quickly turn the flame to medium.
5. Adding curds to the dosa batter gives it a golden colour.
