Rava Dosa / crispy semolina pancake

Rava Dosa is a crispy pancake of South India. It is a derivative of the popular Dosa. This variety of dosa does not require fermentation. It is usually considered as a light meal which can be served for breakfast or dinner.

Semolina/ Sooji rava/ Farina- 1 cup 
Maida / All purpose flour- 1/2 cup
Rice flour- 1 cup
Ginger- 1 inch (chopped)
Green Chillies- 2-3
Cumin seeds- 1-2 tsp
Crushed black pepper- 1 tsp
Few broken cashew nuts (optional)
salt to taste
oil / ghee to make dosa

Mix the above ingredients with water and bring it to butter milk consistency. Heat a flat pan and sprinkle the batter evenly on the pan with your hand. Add ghee or oil  and cook it on a medium high flame. You would get a crispy Rava Dosa. Rava Dosa can be served with coconut chutney and sambar.

Suggestion: Finely chopped cabbage can be used as a topping for the dosa.
