Rava dosa recipe
1tsp of oil
Mustard seeds
Cumin seeds
Dry red chillies(broken into small pieces)

Heat oil in a large pan(you end up making the batter in this one). Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, broken dry red chillies and asafoetida and let it splutter a bit and then switch off the gas immediately.

Measure out equal proportions of Semolina/rava and Rice flour(with one normal sized cup, you can make upto 8 dosas). Mix them both with the seasonings that is already there in the pan(Make sure the gas is turned off). 

Add 1 cup of butter milk(or diluted curd) to it and keep mixing. Add about 2 glasses of water(approx) until you get a really watery consistency

Now comes the fun part. Add 2 large tbsp(15 mls approx) of Diet-Coke to it. One that has a lot of fizz. This helps to set the batter quick.

Keep it aside for 10-15 mins.
Diet-Coke Rava Dosa

Heat the tava real well. And pour the batter on it. Since this batter is very very watery, you are not going to get a perfect circle and the batter wont spread well like normal dosa-batter. So when you pour it will form small holes on the surface, which is okay. Pour more batter and lift and move the tava to spread the batter(DO NOT trying spreading it using the laddle that you use to pour the batter coz that wont work. It will form lumps. So spreading the batter is only by pouring more batter and shaking the tava itself). Let it cook for a good 3-4 mins and turn it when you notice that it has browned.

Enjoy :)

I was given the sample photo that needs to be kept as bench mark. Such is life!

@Vijesh: Panni!

@Nu,Chinkurli: Hi girls. What are you girls doing in this yawn-inducing blog? Really? The only time this guy gets interesting comments is when he writes about Abirami or about me :D

@Abi: I can sue him for disrespecting my anonymity. And then for voluntarily patenting something under my name, when it is not even mine. This is the worst case of interference into someone's otherwise peaceful life. I mean, I dont have to deal with such things, do I?

LOL! I keeeeeeel myself :D
