Rava - Raagi spicy Dosa.

Rava or rave means samolina. Raagi is called finger millet in English.  We can prepare this spicy dosa for break fast or we can have as snack in the evening. Not much of time consumed to prepare this dosa.

Things Needed :
Rava ( Samolina ). 1 Cup. ( Medium size ).
Raagi powder :  2 cups
Rice Powder : 2 Table spoons.
Rasam Powder : 1 Table spoon.
Chilly Powder : 1/2 Tea spoon.( Optional).
Salt : to taste.
Coconut : 2 Table spoons.( Optional ).
Oil : 3 to 4 Table spoons.
Water : Required water.

Mix rava , raagi and rice powder.  Add rasam powder, chilly powder and salt to it. Add grated coconut.
Mix nicely and add required water and prepare dosa dough and keep it for 10 minutes.
Keep a dosa pan on the fire and heat. Sprinkle 1/2 tea spoon of oil and prepare dosa . Leave it for 1 minute and turn the dosa and cook other side of it. Prepare dosas with the rest of the dough. Serve this dosa with jaggery or honey or with desired chutney. Put  little ghee on the top of dosa while serving.

Note : You can also grind coconut and rasam powder together and mix other ingredients and prepare dosa . Can use ghee instead of oil. Rasam powder can  be prepared by roasting 2 table spoons of daniya ( coriander seeds),  1/4 spoon of Methi ( fenugric seeds), 1/2 a spoon of jeera ( cumin seeds) and 4 to 5 red chillies.( Use badagi chillies to get the colour and good taste.) Roast separately on low flame and powder it when it is cooled.  Prepare dosas on medium heat to get the good result.

Serves : 3
