Instant (Soft) Tomato Rava Dosa

By looking at the title you must be thinking what in the opposite World am I in? Cause, usually Rava Dosa is made Crispy and with Onions. There is a story behind this innovation. One day, when my son woke up, I have asked him, what he would like to eat?, as if I am prepared with every possible breakfast. Instantly he said, he wants Dosa, with excitement. But I am not ready with Dosa Batter. Then this Instant Rava Dosa was rescue recipe to me, to make it kid friendly (I made it soft) and to sneak in some vegetables, I have altered the basic Rava Dosa recipe. That's how this Soft Tomato Rava Dosa was created.

Unlike the basic Rava Dosa this is not crispy, so it will be soft for your little ones taste buds. Here is the recipe for you and  it will be handy when your kid instantly wants Dosa. :-)

Suji Rava - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 1/2 cup
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1/2 cup
salt - 1 tsp
Tomato - 1 medium
Yogurt/Curd - 1/2 cup ( adjust accordingly)

How to make it:
1. Grind the Tomato in mixie or magic bullet and set aside
2. Mix the Suji Rava, with Rice Flour and Miada Flour along with Yogurt or Curd.
3. Add salt and mix the tomato juice into mixture.
4. Add water accordingly to make it like very thin batter. Leave it for 30 minutes for more fermentation.
5.  Heat the Griddle and pour some batter on and let it spread quickly.
6. Once it is cooked well roll it and serve with ketchup or some ghee and sugar or some veg curry.

Dosa Served with Green Bean Curry

1. To make it less spicy, I have not used green chilies or cumin seeds, if your little one can handle spice, then you can add these to the batter.
2. This mixture is little thick than normal dosa, so you have pour and let it spread quickly and cook slowly.
3. It takes little longer time to get cook compare to normal dosa.
4. The tangy tomato and Yogurt are the secret ingredients and aids in quick fermentation.

Take care until next time
