This is a quick-fix dosa that feels special! Yes, we mean it. Although the Onion Rava Dosa does not require any grinding or fermentation, the resulting dosas are so tasty and crisp that you will find it difficult to stop eating.

The combination of rava and rice flour gives the dosas a special texture, while onions give it a nice succulent crunch. A tempering of cumin seeds, curry leaves and other ingredients boosts the taste and aroma of the Onion Rava Dosa, making sure everybody is at the table even before you announce the meal!

Serve these dosas right off the tava with sambhar and chutney. Have a go at other dosa treats like the Onion Tomato Rava Uttapa and the Upma Dosa .
