RAWA MASALA DOSAI


Rawa/Semolina dosai is the easiest dosa anyone

could make.Crispy,lightly spiced,and no

fermentation required.

If you are making plain rawa dosai,you can add

chopped onions,green chillies,grated carrot,and

the needed aromatic curry leaf.

The specialty in making this dosai,is that it

should look porous.

In order to get this look,the batter is made thin

and watery.

You should have a wide dosa skillet,as rawa

dosa is normally poured into big crepes,and

served folded.

Today,my recipe is for Masala dosa with rawa

dosa.

Usually, we make the yellow potato masala,

served with poori and masala- dosa .
