Rawa Dosa

Dosa is a must have in my weekly breakfast or dinner menu and i am a die-hard fan of it. Dosa batter is usually there in the fridge and i always make a huge batch of batter…..same goes with my daughter, even she loves dosa’s and onion dosa is her current favorite. This is an instant dosa where in no soaking and grinding is required and it is my go to recipe. You  will get  thin crispy and lacey dosas with this batter. 


Rawa Dosa


1 cup Rawa

1 cup Rice atta

1/4 cup Maida

1/4 cup curds

Salt to taste

1 tsp jeera

2 G.chilli finely chopped

Coriander leaves chopped

Oil as required

Water – close to 3 cups


Combine all the ing. except oil. Add water and prepare a very thin batter . The batter should resemble a thin chaas or buttermilk consistency.

If you have time , rest for 15 mins or proceed further.

Heat a Non stick tawa and take a laddlefull of batter and start poring from the outside i,e from the edge of the pan to the inside. Dont spread the batter with the ladle it will spread by itself.


Add a tsp of oil all over the dosa and let cook on a medium flame till nicely browned .

Serve hot with coconut chutney .

Pinks Notes:

In the same way you can prepare onion rawa dosa as well, for that finely chop onion and spread it on the dosa tawa, then only start pouring the batter, proceed as mentioned above and crisp onion wara dosa is ready.
