Instant Rava Dosa

Instant rava dosa (suji ka dosa) is a popular south Indian crepe recipe made with semolina, rice flour and plain flour. The batter of instant dosa is thin as compared to traditional rice-based dosa batter which yields crisp and flaky dosa. It can be ideally served for any occasions, but generally served for morning breakfast with spicy chutney and veg kurma.
