Rava dosa is a delectably crispy dosa that can be prepared instantly, without the need for any fermentation. A traditional tempering and quick mix-in of chopped onions, coriander and green chillies add excellent flavour to a batter made of ready flours. This dosa is indeed an irresistible option for breakfast, supper, snack or a sudden meal for a surprise guest.
