Egg Rava DosaSemolina Crepes

Egg Rava Dosa

Semolina Crepes with Egg


This is one of the quickest breakfast  you could ever imagine.  An instant dosa that can be mixed using eggs and rava and needs no fermentation. My family is fond of dosas and we make them pretty often. We make this egg dosa those days when we have craving for dosas and no time to prepare batter and ferment! You have to try them to believe how easy and yumm they are!!
Ingredients:-

Eggs -3
Rava/Suji- 2 cups
Onion-1 finely chopped
Chillies- 2 finely chopped
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves- few
Salt- 1 tsp
Water- 3 to 4 cups
Pepper to taste
Oil- for pan frying
Method:-

In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients mentioned above except eggs and mix them well. Beat eggs in a separate bowl with coriander leaves and add this to the rava mix. Whisk everything together with water and make a smooth running batter. Remember the batter has to be of watery consistency to get crisp dosas. Also allow some soaking time for rava or suji/semolina, so that they soften.I usually mix everything and keep the batter for rest at least 10 minutes.

 

Heat a tawa and grease it lightly with oil and take one large ladleful of batter and pour in a circle over the hot griddle making sure you fill the gaps. Smear a little oil on the sides, cook till both sides are golden brown in colour and fold over to make a semi-circle.

Now be patient! Because of the large amount of water in the batter, rava dosa will take longer to cook than regular dosas.


To make the rava dosa crispy, maintain flame low and let the dosa cook longer, taking your time to flip it.

Enjoy crispy egg rava dosa with any chutney or just like that!!
