SEMOLINA DOSA / RAWA DOSA - Easy breakfast recipes


                      Semolina dosa / Rava dosa recipe is the most popular South Indian dosa variety. This dosa recipe is very easy to make as they did not require any fermentation process. I made plain semolina dosa with rice flour, semolina, spices and skipped the spicy chili and leaves of coriander. You must be careful that the batter of semolina dosa must be very thin and easy to flow.  For best results, Semolina dosa / Rawa dosa must be served hot. Hope you all like my recipe of semolina / rava dosa. Do try and drop your valuable comments.
