Rava Set Dosa

Rava /Rave /Semolina is one of the grain which helps you to prepare some food quickly. Semolina is a wheat rava and it is healthy to use it.
I have prepared prepared set dosa with medium sized rava and urid dal. It is soft, fluffy, yummy and of course it is healthy.


Let us see some benefits of eating Rave/Rava/Sooji / Semolina
Rava / Semolina is a coarse  flour made from durum wheat. Rava is rich in protein and fiber. So rava is digested slowly and keeps you full for a long time. It has good amount of vitamins. Rava has good source of iron and magnesium. These minerals helps and support red blood cell production and blood sugar control. Rava /Semolina is good for weight loss, for good heart health.
Here steamed /cooked plain rava is added to ground urid dal. It is idli batter actually and I made use for Fluffy dosa/dose.
Let us see the recipe now :
Pressure cook Rava in a container and keep it aside to cool. ( No water to rava while cooking). You can use weight to cook Rava. It is just like you are cooking rice. But not to add water to rava. It should be dry.

Things Needed :

Urid dal : 1 Cup
Steamed Rava/Semolina : 2 Cups
Salt : As required

Method :

1. Soak urid dal for 2 to 3 hours and grind it with required water. (I have used grinder).
2. Take out the ground urid batter to a big bowl and add salt and steamed rava.
3. Mix it well and leave it for fermentation.
4. Next morning Mix the Rava dosa batter nicely. Add water if required. It should be idli batter consistency.
5. Keep tava /pan on the fire and heat.



6. Clean the pan with a clean kitchen tissue.
7. Sprinkle some oil and put a ladle of oil. Do not spread much.
8. Cover and cook on low flame.  Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of oil on the top. Turn the other side and cook.



9. Take it out from the pan and serve hot Rava Set Dosa with the side dish you have prepared.


10.We had it with Honey and pickle.

Note :

Rava should be cooked well to get good taste. No need to add any methi seeds or avalakki. We are using more Urid dal. Cook on medium and low flame. Adding ghee/ butter instead of oil to cook dosa is optional. It taste heavenly.
Time : Urid dal soaking time 3 Hours + Fermentation + Over Night + Dosa preparation 30 Minutes.
Serves : 4 to 5.
Grind a cup of Urid dal with required water and take it out to a big bowl.
