A simple rawa dosa which is really quick to make and tastes amazing with some aloo subji and chutney or just some plain molagapodi! A delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner option!
I am in the middle of house moving, wrapping work and some more issues at the personal front and life has been busy. While I have been running across the town to get the house in some order so that we can move and in parallel keeping up with work, drawing plans for the summer kids workshop, client deadlines and the likes, my househelp Sunita, has been rising to the occasion to help me. She has, kind of, taken over the kitchen. Bless her! Some days ago she made a fabulous rawa dosa, aloo sbji and chutney for dinner. I tweeted saying “Super thankful for my house help, between trips across the town, dealing with carpenters, painters, a not so well child and work. I am getting good food on the table. Today’s dinner rawa dosa, aloo sabji and chutney”. The dosa was really appreciated both at home as well as online and when I told her this the next morning, she told me “blog pe recipe daal do, Didi”. It amused me and I tweeted that again and a lot of you said you will love to see the recipe of her rawa dosa.
The thing is she really doesn’t understand what a blog is, but some days ago. when after being amused of many months on why I click food pics, she asked and I explained to her what a blog means and also showed the blog to her. I told her that its like a recipe book that anyone can see. She was pretty happy and impressed and since then she has been throwing around the word ‘blog’ off and on. She has also been reading my old Tarla Dalal, Nita Kapur and Sanjeev Kapoor books and making dishes from them. The other day, she told me “didi, blog se dhekh lete hain”. I am happy that she is excited. Its a win win really!
Quick Cooking : Sunita's Rawa Dosa
- 1 cup Rava
- 1/2 cup rice flour
- 1 tbsp maida
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp black pepper corns Whole
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 chilies Green finely chopped
- 1 sprig curry leaves (optional)
- handful coriander leaves
- to taste salt
- In a mixing bowl, mix together rava, rice flour, maida, salt together. Add about 4 cups water and make a thin smooth batter.
- Add finely chopped green chilies, finely chopped onion, cumin seeds, black pepper corns, curry leaves and mix well.
- Heat the dosa tawa and let it become hot. Sprinkle some water on the tawa. The water droplets will sizzle and the water will evaporate. Pour the thin batter in a circular motion. Do not try and spread the batter like we do in a normal dosa. Some holes are good!
- Spread 1 tsp of oil on the sides of the dosa, cook both sides till crisp. Serve with some aloo subji and chutney or just some plain molagapodi!
