Indian Instant breakfast ideas:

Dosa is one of a famous breakfast in South Indian cuisine. It is the most delicious one too. There are many varieties of Dosa available, and this one made with Sooji (Rava).

Mainly Dosa can be made in two ways, one is the traditional method of fermenting the batter and another one is instant.

Fermentation Process is lengthy

The fermented dosa is a lengthy process; it involves soaking and grinding and fermenting almost it takes nearly a day for making the batter.

The second one is Instant dosa, which I am going to talk about today. It is an easy and quick method, which is made in few minutes.

Making this instant mix will not take any major effort like soaking or grinding. All you need is rice flour, sooji flour, wheat and millet flour to make this instant powder.

Instant Rava Dosa is one such dish for quick breakfast or dinner. Rice flour, Sooji, all-purpose flour with spices, all together makes a crispy and delicious dosa.




Quick homemade Rava dosa mix:

There is a variety of Rava dosa mix available in Indian grocery shops these days. However, you can make your mix at home. This homemade mix has a shelf life of 30 – 40 days when stored in an airtight container.

By preparing and storing this mix at home, you can save much time and effort of making Rava dosa on busy working days.

The important part is you do not have to miss your breakfast because of lack of time.

Mix Rava, Rice Flour, All Purpose Flour, Cumin seeds together and store it in air tight container. Whenever you plan to make Rava dosa, just add water and buttermilk to the mix and set aside for 20 minutes and make dosa.

How to make Instant Rava Dosa?

Once you have the Instant Rava dosa mix, you can make the Rava dosa instantly at any time. When you need to make dosa, just pull out the container from the shelf, add buttermilk and water to the mix. Once you have, the mix makes dosas in a pan or skillet.

Since the batter is thin, it could be little challenging to make perfectly shaped round dosa. It takes some practice to get that shape but taste would be the same even if the dosas are out of shape.

Crispy Rava Dosa:

However, it does make a difference in taste if the dosas are thin and crispy. The trick to the crispy dosa in the way we shape the dosa in the pan or skillet. Make a thin batter and pour a ladle full of batter into skillet and tilt or move the skillet too and fro to fill in the gaps.

Avoid making a thick paste and spreading it in a circular shape. Drizzle oil on sides and cook until the bottom of dosa turns crispy.

Spread some finely chopped onion on top of it fold and serve. Adding the chopped onion is optional, and you can skip it or add any other vegetable.
