To make this instant onion rava dosa – just mix all the ingredients and allow the batter to sit for 15 to 20 minutes and then you are ready to make the dosas. When the dosa batter is resting, you prepare the coconut chutney. The ease of this recipe makes it a good option for breakfast or even for brunch.

I have tempered the dosa batter with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. This tempering gives a really nice flavor to the dosa and does not take more than 5 minutes.

To make the batter, you can use water or buttermilk. Sometimes I prepare the batter with water and sometimes with buttermilk. Both ways the onion rava tastes good. The spices, herbs that go into the dosa give their own taste and flavor….. Not to forget the presence of onions too.

This dosa is best served with coconut chutney or sambar.

How to make hotel style onion rava dosa

1. Mix all the ingredients for the dosa like the rava, rice flour, all-purpose flour, onions, green chilies, ginger, crushed black pepper.

2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a small frying pan. Crackle the mustard seeds first. Then add the cumin and curry leaves. Saute for a few seconds till the cumin browns.

3. Add this tempering mixture along with the oil to the other ingredients. Add salt too.

4. Pour water or buttermilk and make a thin batter without any lumps. The batter should not be thick or of medium consistency. I added about 2 cups and ¼ cup water to the batter. If the batter becomes too thin, then add some rice flour to slightly thicken it. Keep aside the dosa batter for 15 to 20 minutes.

8. Sprinkle ½ tsp oil from the top. This dosa takes a little longer time to cook than the regular dosa. The pan has to be really hot before you pour the batter.

9. Let the base becomes golden or crisp. Flip and cook the other side. Usually, I cook both sides. But you can just cook the base and when the top is also cooked, fold the dosa and serve immediately. Prepare all the dosas this way. The rava and the flours settle down at the bottom of the batter. So you have to stir the batter very well every time you make the dosa. In case the batter becomes thick after making a few dosas, then add some water and stir again.
