  • ½ cup Semolina/Rava
  • 1 tbsp Curd
  • ¼ cup All purpose flour/Maida
  • ½ cup Rice Flour
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds (Jeera)
  • ½ tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ginger chopped
  • 1 tbsp Coriander Leaves chopped
  • 5 Curry Leaves
  • 1 Green Chilli chopped
  • 300 ml Water
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • Oil for shallow frying
  • Salt as per need


  • In a large mixing bowl, take ½ cup semolina, ½ cup rice flour, 1 tbsp curd, ¼ cup all-purpose flour/maida, chopped ginger, and mix it well.
  • Then add a little salt according to your taste, chopped coriander leaves, curry leaves, and 1 medium chopped onion and well again.
  • Now, add the water parts by parts till your batter is of flowing consistency. Mix all the ingredients very well.
  • Keep the batter aside to rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, the batter could have become a bit thick consistency. This is because the rava have soaked some amount of water.
  • Add some water again and bring it to the right consistency.
  • Take a non stick frying pan. Bring it to heat on medium flame. Apply some oil to the pan and let it heat.
  • As soon as the pan is hot, reduce the flame on low, mix the rava dosa batter again and add a ladle full of batter into the hot pan.
  • As the batter is watery, there will be big gaps in the dosa. Don’t fill the gaps with batter. Let it be as it is.
  • As soon as the dosa turns golden brown, remove it with the help of a spatula and serve hot.


  • The batter should be very flowing water-like consistency. This is the main key that makes rava dosa soo special and crispy.
  • Mix the batter well each time before making a rava dosa.
  • You can prepare the rava beforehand. Just keep it soaked in water for 15 - 20 minutes. Then you can directly mix it with the other ingredients.
  • Curd and rice flour are used to make dosas crispy. Only use the said amount of curd.
  • If you love soft dosas, then you can skip the curd and add 1 - 2 tbsp more all-purpose flour.
