Rava Dosai with left over dosa batter | Easy Rava Dosai

Whenever i had leftover dosa batter, i make rava dosai with it and it's our family favorite. It's very easy to make and also tasty indeed.This rava dosa is not like our regular lacey rava dosai, but it's quite easy to spread and it's best way to use the leftover batter.
For this recipe, sour dosa batter is better, if the batter is not had enough sourness, add butter milk or curd. You can make it as plain or with onions as i mentioned it here.

Rava Dosa with leftover dosa batter

Preparation Time : 30 mins | Cooking Time : 15 minsMakes : 7 or 8 dosa 
Recipe Category: Dosa/Dosai | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Dosa Batter - 1 cup
Rava/Sooji - 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves - few 
Salt - to taste
To Saute
Onion - 1 medium size
Channa Dal - 1 tsp
Mustard & Urad Dal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Oil - 1 tsp

Soak rava in water for 1/2 hr . Take dosa batter in a bowl , add the soaked rava into it.Add salt and enough water to the batter and make it as pouring consistency.Now finely chop the onions, green chili, curry leaves & coriander leaves and keep it ready. 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 necessary.
  • As the batter has salt already, so 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.
