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!
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
1 tsp sugar / grated jaggery
Pinch of Hing (Asafoetida)
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!!!
