Rava dosa or rave dose is prepared using rice flour, rava or semolina and maida flour. Optionally coriander leaves, cumin seeds, pepper, curry leaves and ginger are used.

Rava dosa or rave dose is an instant breakfast recipe. Rava or semolina is nothing but cream of wheat and in this recipe medium sized rava is used. You can find more rava or semolina recipes on this website like rave uppittu (rava upma), rava kesari bath, rave unde or rava laddu and rava roti.

The pan used plays a major role in preparing proper crispy rava dosa. I have a thick, well seasoned cast Iron pan, which we use for neer dosa (neer dose), spicy neer dosa and instant ragi dosa. If you do not have cast iron pan, don't worry go ahead with non-stick pan.

Though rava dosa recipe is very simple the proportion of flours and the rava plays major role in preparing ultimate rava dosa. You can find many rava dosa recipes on the internet. Even I have tried many recipes but was not satisfied with the texture and the taste. Finally this is the recipe from a very popular hotel or restuarant of Bengaluru (Karnataka), where I felt the rava dosas are just perfect and yummy. So I am very happy to share this rava dosa recipe (copyrighted) with you all.

So if someone wants to use or reproduce this post please do not forget to give the credit as I have struggled a lot to get this original and authentic rava dosa recipe.
