On the days grandmom used to fast, carbs and lentils were avoided in the diet. And this is one of her quick to make and yummy crispy dosas. I remembered this recipe – Wholewheat flour & Rava Dosa suddenly last week and made this. Team it up with any chutney and / or molgapudi and you have a very filling breakfast. Maida also is added to this, but I wanted to make this only with wholewheat and we enjoyed it a lot. You may also add grated veggies / onions / chilles etc to spice it up . For kids, the dosa could also be topped with grated cheese or paneer to make it more healthy and filling : the options are endless. However, as this is a recipe strictly for those who fast, I have made it sans any spice or onions. Instead of maida, however you may add Sama flour (used for fasting). Let’s get to this recipe while I send this to BM # 14 under Dosa Varieties. Check the fellow marathoners here.

1) Mix the Wholewheat flour, Rava and salt. Add curd and mix again. Pour water to make it to running consistency but not too watery. Rest for 5 – 10 mins.
2) Heat a skillet (tava) on high and sprinkle some water to test if the water sizzles.
3) Now turn heat to medium. Take a ladleful of the batter and spread it on the tava in a circular fashion. Drizzle oil on the ends. Cook on both sides for a crispy yummy instant Dosa 🙂
