Rava Dosai with left over dosa batter | Easy Rava Dosai

Rava Dosa with leftover dosa batter , an easy,tasty and quick to make dosa with rava and dosa batter. Whenever i have very little dosa batter that's not enough for us and i don't want to make anything elaborately for our breakfast/ dinner, then most probably, i would have made this dosa. I had learned this from my mom who often made this for our dinner when we were kids, those days, i was not big fan of this dosa because of the additional ingredients added into the dosa, i picked each and every dal,curry leaves & all other stuff from the dosa before eating it. But now, this is one of my favorite dosa and i never miss a opportunity to make this dosa,wondering how my taste changes with time.Coming to this dosa, unlike the regular rava dosa, this is not lacey in texture but taste wise, it's too good with chutney and/or sambar,

Heat a kadai with oil, add mustard & urad dal, let it splutter.Then add channa dal, onions, chili & curry leaves one by one and saute it with pinch of salt.Once the onions become translucent, remove it from heat and add into the batter. Finally add some coriander leaves too and mix the batter well.Heat the tava , pour a laddle full of batter and spread it like our regular dosa. Drizzle oil on the edges.Cover the dosa with lid for quick cooking, once you see the color changes, flip the dosa and cook it on other side too.That's it . Tasty Rava dosa is ready. Serve it with your favorite chutneys or sambar.
  • As rava takes more time to cook than our regular dosa, i covered it with lid for quick cooking, but that's not mandatory.
  • As the batter has salt already, be careful in adding salt.
  • If you like coconut, add bits of coconut too in the batter.
  • We like some crunchiness in the dosa,so added the chana dal,but if you dont like it, skip that.
