Heat a tsp of oil, add the ingredients for seasoning and pour it over the batter.
Heat a non stick tawa/iron griddle, take a little batter in a ladle and start filling it from the outer corners of the tawa to the inside in a net like pattern.
Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa.
Cover it with a lid, when it becomes golden brown, flip it over to the other side and let it get cooked.

Nice Butterfly. I would like some please. Great collection you have here. i will enjoy following you.
Thanks for visiting me.
Hello Padhu… Great job! Can we substitute buttermilk with anything else?
Recipe won't work. Mixing other flours with (rawa+buttermilk) mixture after 1 hr.!!!The dosa will stick to the pan.
You need to mix all the flours together with buttermilk and keep it for 1 hr.
This recipe has be used for generations in our house.It has been handed over to my mother from my grandmother and I learnt it from my mother.It need a bit of practice to make rava dosa
For rava dosa also did u use roasted rava or fine rava
You can use any rava
Thanks for the Receipe.. Dosai turned to be so crispy and delicious. I was wondering if the watery batter can make a good dosa form.. It was superb..!
Thanks a lot. I love ur website. I made this today and it turned out great
The rava dosai looks so tempting…I love the way you have arranged the dosa….
My favourite dosai….Thanks Sis
butter milk is not here .. so how can make rava dosa
Do it without buttermilk. It is added to give a slight sour taste to the dosa. Also check out my Onion Rava dosa

padhu how can u get these ideas for cute presentations its very cute and thanks for making moms to gv their kids to eat food with enjoy
I've been following your blog for quite sometime and love the way you present each recipe. Simple steps makes it easy for us to follow. I tried Rava dosa this morning and turned out really good. Thank you 🙂
wonderful presentation padhu .. I have been following your blog for traditional recipes and many others. Ravadosa turned out crispy in the corners but it was soggy and soft in the middle .. it has happened 2 or 3 times before also. Pls advice where I am going wrong ..
Thank you so much Priya for liking my blog and recipes. Regarding your doubt- If the rava dosa is soggy in the middle, I think there is too much batter in the center. So the sides gets cooked faster and the center is soggy and uncooked. Check out my Onion Rava Dosa for step wise pictures.
Thanks for the recipe…
Is it mandatory to use maida? Any other options to substitute it? Especially corn flour will be ok..? Coz I'm a sincere enemy of maida..
Also please explain about the difference between maida and the 'all purpose flour'..
Cornflour or cornstarch in not any better than maida. Maida and all purpose flour are the same. You can check out my onion rava dosa recipe with had very less all purpose flour. Check Onion Rava Dosa.
As my non stick dosa tawa is curved in the centre the batter settles in the middle of the pan even if i cover the edges of the pan 1st.. so that the centre part of the dosa is not cooked.. what can i do to avoid this?
I assume that you are pouring too much batter. I use an iron tawa which is also slightly curved in the center but still dosa comes out well. Moreover, you have to practice to make perfect rava dosa.
Hi your receipes are good
