Rava Dosa with Avocado..

I had one avacado left and din't know what to do with it. So thought why not put it in a quick rava dosa and try the flavor ?? Just went ahead and tried the same and was pleased with it. Avacado doesn't really give any flavor to the dosas, so the rava dosa tasted just fine ;)....


Fine Rava - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
All-purpose flour - 2 tbsp
Wheat flour - 1/4 cup
Salt - to taste
Avacado - 1, cut in half, pitted, pulp removed and mashed.
Crushed Cumin (Jeera) - 1/2 tsp
Green chillies, cut fine - 4
Cilantro - little, chopped
Curry leaves, chopped - 2
Oil - to fry


- Mix the rava, rice flour, all-purpose flour, wheat flour, mashed avacado pulp, cilantro and salt with enough water to make a thin batter.
- Heat very little oil for seasoning in a small pan. Add the crushed cumin, green chillies and curry leaves. Add this to the batter.
- Keep the batter aside for about 15 mins.
- The batter might thicken after this. You can add water now and adjust the consistency.
- Heat a tawa, pour the batter on the tawa all over. Do not spread the batter in a circular motion on the tawa. Just pour.

- Drizzle little oil all over and turn over when crisp and cook the other side also.

- Serve hot with chutney or sambar or both :)..

KayKat said...

Yum! This is a great idea!

I usually add overripe avocados to parathas, gives them a creamy flavour and texture.
