Crisp dosas made with semolina, wheat flour and maida.

Rava Dosa is a popular South Indian dosa variety made with semolina, rice flour and maida. In some places instead of rice flour, wheat flour is used.

Unlike the traditional dosa batter, the batter for this dosa is thin and uses semolina, green chillies and maida. The dosa is also thin and crispy.

This dosa is an ideal breakfast dish and can also be served as a main course with sambar and coconut chutney.
