Instant Rava Dosa (Savory Rice and Semolina Crepes)

IMG_1162I have admitted it before and I will say it again – Breakfast is not my thing really. Why? Well, for one, weekday mornings are so hectic and so I have to make do with cereal and or homemade cereal bars  and two, I love to sleep in during the weekends (sheepish smile)… So making an elaborate breakfast is not my thing although I do acknowledge that eating a healthy breakfast is really very important for you!. Hence what I do love are breakfast ideas that are easy and not so time consuming! One favorite is the Indian traditional ‘upma’, which is a simple dish with a ‘polenta’ like consistency made out of semolina. Traditional South Indian breakfast items include Idli and Dosas which I like to make for lunch or dinner but never for breakfast!  But there is this ‘instant dosa’ that I do make for breakfast since it does not need any advance planning!  What that means is that even if I wake up at 8 in the morning, I can serve these instant dosas at 9 am to the family and impress them! 🙂

The traditional dosa batter with rice and lentils needs to ferment overnight while this instant dosa can be made out of semolina (rava) and yoghurt/buttermilk (I have posted the recipe for dosas before). This instant dosa recipe comes in handy when you are in the mood for dosas and want to eat them instantly! These are also great as a snack for the kids anytime of the day. My amma used to make these for us for a snack along with evening tea. Here is the recipe and I am also bringing these instant dosas to Fiesta Friday #30

    • well this recipe is for instant dosa which is not as tasty as the real one made with lentils and rice flour. I have posted that recipe too -only that needs time to ferment usually overnight and hence needs advance planning! 🙂

  1. These look yummy, Indu. I usually have to have cold pre-prepared oats for breakfast because I don’t have time to cook a meal. These crepes look easy to do and so beautiful to boot!
