Dosa…everybody’s favourite from children to elders. I have observed so many Non-Indians enjoying dosas in Indian restaurants. Usually for ravva dosa, we mix sooji, rice flour and maida. But I came to know of a different ravva dosa through a friend which is made with sooji and urad dal…it tasted so yummy and crispy... Now let's see how to make it…:)
This is my submission for Dosa Mela hosted by Srivalli of
Sooji or Bombay ravva-3 cups
Urad dal or black gram-1 cup
Ginger-a small piece
Grated carrot-2 cups
Chopped coriander-2 tablespoons
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
1. Soak the urad dal for three hours and wash it thoroughly.
2. Grind it with ginger, cumin seeds, green chillies and salt into a smooth paste and transfer into a big bowl.
3. Wash the sooji with water and add it to the batter.
4. Mix the ingredients into a thick batter by adding a little water if necessary and keep it aside for 3-4 hours.
5. Heat the dosa pan on a medium flame and pour a ladle of batter.
6. Spread the batter into a circle and add one tablespoon of oil to the edge of the circle.
7. Add one tablespoon of grated carrot and chopped coriander leaves on the top of the dosa.
8. Heat it until the edge of dosa comes up or till the dosa turns light brown in colour.
9. Fold the dosa into half and transfer it to a plate.
10. Serve hot with any pickle or chutney of your choice. I served it with ginger pickle and sambar.
