one cup semolina/rava
one cup maida
1/2 cup rice flour
4-5 green chillies finely chopped
3/4 inch ginger chopped fine
1 1/2 tspn jeera slightly crushed (enough to bring out its flavor)
salt to taste
good pinch asafoetida
2-3 chopped onions
a bunch cashews
oil to make dosas
Mix rava, maida, rice flour together into a thick batter adding little water at a time so no lumps are formed. Mixing
by hand is a good idea if you don't have a whisk or electric mixer. Add salt, crushed cumin asafoetida and leave in
a warm spot for six to seven hours at least.
When ready to eat, spray a non-stick pan lightly with oil and warm.
Thin out the batter to the consistency where it can be drizzled onto the pan with a spoon. Drop chopped green chillies and ginger into batter.
Sprinkle some of the cut onions and cashews onto the pan and now continuing on low-medium heat, drizzle the batter such that there is a latice work effect. A lot of holes is just the thing. Dribble a bit bit of oil around it and when the edges start turning brown coax it off the pan with a flat, wide spatula and flip it over. Remove in a few minutes and make more.
For the plain rava dosa leave out the onions.
