Corn Meal Rava Dosa for Blog Hop

Hello Friends,

Again late for my Blog Hop entry this week. I was paired with Anu of Anu's Healthy Kitchen. Please do check what other bloggers cooked for this one by clicking on the link of Blog Hop.

Wanted to pick something different and my eyes spotted this. I am like wait, a dosa out of corn, that sounds interested. And, so here I am with her Corn Meal Rava Dosa.

For those who do not know, dosa is a crispy crepe that is made usually with rice and lentil batter. A very gluten free recipe for someone who cannot enjoy usual crepes.

I couldn't believe how normal or regular dosa like it came. My son couldn't tell the difference and neither could I. Same crispiness as if you used rice in it. So, without further ado, here is the recipe.

Corn Meal Rava Dosa
Urad Dal (skinned split black gram) - 1 cup
Idli Rava (cream of rice) - 1 cup
Corn Meal (white or yellow) - 2 cups
Eno Salt - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - for taste
Oil - for cooking dosas (and not to be mixed in the batter)

  • Soak Urad Dal for 3-4 hours and grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Add idli rava and corn meal to it, mix well. 
  • Add water to bring it to dosa or pancake batter consistency.
  • Let it sit overnight or for about 8 hours before you use it.
  • Now, add the rest of the ingredients (eno, salt and baking soda) and mix well.
  • Add more water, if needed.
  • Heat a non stick pan.
  • Take a spoonful or 2 of the batter, pour it on the tawa and spread it in a circle till it is nice and thin.
  • Sprinkle or spray little oil on the sides and on the dosa itself.
  • Let it cook on both sides for about 30 seconds or till golden brown or the texture you prefer.
  • Enjoy !!!

Serve it with any sambar or chutneys you like. Make them crispy or soft per you liking.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
