Rawa(Sooji/Semolina) Dosai | Restaurant Style Crispy Rava Dosa Recipe

Rava dosa is a popular South Indian Dosa variety made with semolina. Almost all restaurants in SouthIndia have this recipe on their menu.  This is a delectabaly crispy dosa that can be prepared instantly without the usual fermentation process. There are many variations in Rawa Dosa with respect to the ingredients and measurements used and I am giving here the one that I normally use. Serve the crispy and tasty Rava dosa with your favourite dippings. I personally prefer serving with Idli Podi. We can also serve with Idli sambar or any of your favourite chutneys.

Recipe CuisineSouth Indian

Rawa(Semolina)1 Cup
All purpose flour(Maida)1/2 Cup
Rice flour1 Cup
SaltTo taste
Cumin Seeds1 teaspoon
Green Chilli2
Whole Peppercorns1 teaspoon
Curry Leavesfew

  1. Mix rawa, Maida, rice flour in a bowl along with salt, cumin seeds, chopped green chillies and peppercorns and chopped curry leaves
  2. Add water and make this to a thin batter. The batter should be like a thin butter milk. Keep adding water till the batter becomes absolutely thin in consistency. If we keep the batter aside, we can notice the top layer is so watery and the bottom layer is so thick. So mix the batter well each time before you pour the batter in tawa
  3. Heat a thawa and sprinkle little water and it the water sizzles, then the tawa is in perfect hot. Now, Pour a ladle of  batter in the tawa. You can see the dosa will have lots of small holes as the batter is so thin. The rawa dosa will not be in a perfect circle shape. So don't worry about shape.
  4. Add a teaspoon of ghee / oil around the dosa and keep the flame in medium and allow the dosa to cook till it is crispy and the bottom part becomes nicely golden brown. Since the rawa dosa is thin, we don't need to flip it to cook the other side
  5. Once the dosa is cooked completely, remove it slowly using the spatula
  6. The Crispy and yummy rawa dosa is ready to serve with any type of chutneys'

Dr mythili Ramanathan

is it possible for me to use 1/2 cup wheat flour instead of maida aunty please advise

i am a big fan of your sight and really the recipes are wonderful what i appreaciate is the perfect measure and ratio that you have give nice good work!!

Hi Dr. Mythili, thanks for your comments. Yes, you can substitute wheat flour with maida. but generally wheat flour makes the batter denser because of which dosa will be thicker. So try to use 1/4 cup of wheat flour if you are not using maida.

adding pepper, curry /corianderleaves,asafotida and cashew gives a better taste

Learning the preparatory method of this amazingly Indian recipe is just fabulous and delicious to eat and prepare.

Hello mam
Yr Rae wipes are too good to make. My iron dosa tawa is little deepened in the centre..so the watery rasa dosai batter accumulates in the middle as soon as I pour. How to avoid this
