How to Make Onion rava dosai

  • Mix all the ingredients except the oil and make a very thin batter.
  • It is very important that the batter should be very thin since rava soaks a lot of liquid.
  • Keep adding water (and if needed, salt) throughout the dosai making process to ensure crispy dosas.
  • Heat a non-stick or cast iron pan until it is very hot.
  • Pour the batter from the outside to inside to make lacy dosas.
  • Apply ghee or oil around the dosa.
  • Once this side has browned, flip it to the other side and let it brown on the other side.
  • Remove and serve immediately. Repeat the same procedure with the rest of the batter.
