Rava -dosai
If you wonder on reading the title of the post, yes it is Rava dosa recipe only. IT has been six years now i have been blogging but never posted this recipe of rava dosa in jeyashri's kitchen. Some how during my childhood days it was never made at my house. Whenever we go to eat out, my parents will order for Onion Rava Dosa and me and my sister will order Parrota. Always out neighbour aunty makes rava dosa and many times she either call us when she is making or send it to home too. So i always have the inhibition to try out this Rava dosa at home. It has been a request from my readers for a very long time and finally i asked the recipe from that aunty, and got it perfect for the first time. Then i wondered why i was such reluctant to try this recipe at home and keep on postponing for a long time. Now Rava dosa i make at home once a week and all of us are a big fan of crispy rava dosa. Try this rava dosa at home and let me know your feedback. Check out my crsipy dosa recipe and Instant wheat flour dosa too. I halved the original recipe given by her. Sorry my dear readers for making this post very late.
