Rice Flour Dosa recipe (chawal ke atte ka 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.

It is a perfect and easy instant breakfast recipe prepared with rice flour and topped with spices and veggies. it is basically a combination of neer dosa and rava dosa recipe which carries the same set of ingredients and the way it is prepared.

In this recipe, rice flour takes a huge proportion, whereas in rava dosa it is semolina. this proportion helps to give the required taste and texture to the dosa. in addition, I have added veggie grate like carrot, onions, and fresh herbs which makes it an ideal breakfast recipe.

Tips and Variations

  • 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.
  • If the batter is too thick and you have difficulty spreading it, add some more water.
  • 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 on low to medium heat to get the golden crisp color.
  • lastly, the crispy rice flour dosa tastes great when served hot with spicy chutney.
  • How you spread the batter is important to achieve crispiness. Please check out any of the good videos on youtube.
