Buttermilk-Rava Dosa - A Quick One!


Back to my ol' love dosas! This one is from a colleague from ex-Mumbai office. She is a gujarati girl and this is her mom's recipe. I love these dosas for their flavour- buttermilk n rava combo!

Ingredients :
1 1/2 cups fine rava(Semolina)
2 tbspn maida (all purpose flour)
1 cup labaan (i.e buttermilk)
1 medium onion
1 inch ginger
2 green chillies
3-4 stalks of fresh coriander leaves
Salt
1 tsp sugar / grated jaggery
Pinch of Hing (Asafoetida)
Water

Method :
In a big bowl, combine rava, maida, salt,sugar, hing with buttermilk, whisk till its lump free.(Keeping this aside gets standing time for the batter.) In a food processor, pulse the onions, ginger, chillies and coriander leaves till finely done or fine chop with a knife. Add to the batter. Add water to get dosa batter consistency, if required. Leave for ten minutes covered.
Heat the dosa griddle, pour and spread one ladle full, cook on both sides till done.

Serve with chutney of your choice!


A glass of chai , kaapi or health drink goes well with this breakfast, mine goes with a glass of plain hot milk!!!

Thats indeed a quick dosa with many flavors. This will come in handy when we run out of our usual idly/dosa batter.

These look absolutely delicious! Very similar to a quick dosa I make from rice flour and yoghurt. You can see pictures on my blog, here: http://mangosoup.blogspot.com/2009/08/coconut-and-rice-flour-dosas.html
