Rice dosa

Rice flour dosa is crispy and easy dosa recipe. Traditionally dosa is prepared from fermented batter, but I share an instant dosa recipe that is prepared from rice flour, rava, and regular spices. I also share a slightly spicy peanut chutney recipe, which tastes great with dosa. Without any planning, in just 30 minutes, and with simple ingredients, you can have this amazing dosa with chutney for your lunch, dinner, or breakfast meal. Do try this!

The key to making Instant rice dosa at home are
  • Firstly, it is an instant version of dosa, so I made it with rice flour and add some rava to give a crispy texture to the dosa.
  • I add some cooked rice into the dosa batter to help in binding. You can use besan instead of cooked rice, but add a lesser amount of besan into the dosa batter.
  • i have used non-stick tawa to roast this dosa till it is crisp. you may use a cast iron dosa pan too, but non-stick is a much better option. also, roast the dosa in low to medium heat to get the golden crisp color.
  • lastly, the crispy rice flour dosa tastes great when served hot with spicy chutney.
