To make Onion Rava Dosa , batter consistency is the only key factor to consider . Batter should be watery and runny to nail a perfect South Indian Onion Rava Dosa . Though it’s called as Instant Rava Dosa , a good 30 minutes of resting time for batter is very important . For instant version of Dosa / Idli , if semolina / rava is used in the recipe then just make sure to soak and keep for minimum 20- 30 minutes to get desired results . Or else the final dish may not turn out as good as it needs to be.

If you are a reader of my blog , by now you would have already noticed that for all my semolina based recipes I use curds / yogurt . Because it adds a hint of tang flavour to the final dish to make it more delicious. Either buttermilk or curds with water can be used in this recipe. Always use medium size rava / bombay rava or regular upma rava to make rava dosa. Using fine rava or coarse rava (bansi rava) doesn’t yield good crispy lacy dosa.

Also in order to save time , initially mix rava , rice flour and refined flour with curds and water , rest for good 20 minutes. Whilst chop onions , green chillies and leaves and then add into the batter along with other spices. Also while batter is resting ,you can prepare Coconut Chutney and Tomato Chutney to serve with Onion Rava Dosa.

Notes

  • Adding curds or buttermilk is optional , but adding it really enhances the taste.
  • You can even replace 2 Tbsp of Refined Flour with Whole Wheat flour if required.
  • Batter consistency should be watery to get lace structure in Dosa. Rava tends to settle down at bottom so stir batter from bottom in ladle every time before pouring batter on griddle to make dosa.
  •  Be generous in adding Ghee / oil for roasting Dosa , as it makes dosa crispy .
  • Tastes good when served hot.
