Tava Recipes, 935 Tava Vegetarian Recipes

Cooking is an art and just like an artist, you would also need certain tools to execute and create a masterpiece. Indian food is highly diverse and for cooking them you would require an array of equipment's. The basic tools you would require are a sharp knife, cutting board, pans, cooking utensils, saucepans, rolling pin and board, food processor, spice box, griddle, pressure cooker

Talking about griddles, commonly known as tava, it is a wide surfaced pan with very shallow (and sometimes no) sides, which is heated for griddling or grilling. They come both curved and flat bottoms. They are generally made out of iron or are covered with a non-stick coating. The coating prevents food from sticking and makes cleaning easier. It is really an advantage when reheating sticky foods, such as rice. It also reduces the amount of fat that is normally required while cooking. It is used to cook rotis, parathas, naans, dosas, pancakes and other flat breads. See Indian rotis made using tava like jowar roti, jowar methi roti and Gujarati rotla.

It is also used to prepare a range of starters and snacks.

It has a handle that helps you to hold the pan and handle the food easily, sometimes flipping it in a smart way to cook evenly! Some delicacies that were traditionally cooked in a tandoor like the naan can also be cooked in a tava, reproducing the same great taste in a convenient manner.

Let's have a look at some dishes cooked on tava!

South Indian Tava recipes

There are lots of South Indian Tava recipes which we cook at home from masala dosa, dosa, rava dosa  and many more recipes. 

Rava Dosa, Onion Rava DosaRava Dosa, Onion Rava Dosa

Ragi dosa also known as nachni dosa or finger millet dosa is consumed as breakfast in South-Indian states and now also all over India because of the health benefits of finger millet!

Nachni Dosa

Nachni Dosa

Masala Dosa is a perfect Tava Recipe.

Dosa is a thin crepe made using rice and lentil batter.  

Tasty Onion Tomato Rava Uttapa is a versatile dish that can be made for breakfast or supper, or as an evening snack for kids. Interestingly, this recipe is not a quick-fix that uses soda to rise the batter, nor does it require planning the previous day, as an hour is all that it takes for the semolina batter to ferment, thanks to the quick action of curds.

Dosa are the safest option you can opt for when it comes to street food. With an addition of vegetables, Uttapa are thick rice pancakes, heavy on tummy and soft in texture.

Chat Pati Frankies:

I guess frankie would be a creation by a mother whose kid threw tantrums for not eating a particular subzi. Turn your boring chapati into a delicious roll by using all your favorite veggies and yummy paneer too. With the addition of peppy chaat masala, cheese it turns into a heavenly combination.
