Chiroti Rava Dosa


I prepared Rava dosa using Chiroti rava few weeks back and it tasted very good. Chiroti Rava is very fine form of Sooji rava. My mom got this last time from India.


Servings : 6  or 7 dosas

Chiroti Rava – 1/2 cup ( or you can use regular sooji rava )

Rice Flour – 1/4 cup

Maida – 1/2 cup

Salt – as per taste

Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

Green chillies – 1 or 2 based on how spicy it is

Cilantro – chopped – 1 tbsp

Buttermilk – 1/2 cup ( optional , instead you can use water )

Water – 1 1/2 cup

Asafoetida – a pinch

Oil – for dosas


Mix Rava , rice flour , maida in a bowl and add water / buttermilk to form a thin batter.

Add all other ingredients and mix well and leave it aside for 30 minutes.

Heat the Skillet and once it is ready , pour the batter with ladle from corners to center ( Make sure to pour the batter from a 2 to 3 inches height and not like regular dosas )

Sprinkle oil on the corners and cook it for 1 –2 mins or until one side is golden brown. Flip and cook the other side as well.

Crispy Rava dosa is now ready to serve. You can have this with Coriander  / coconut chutney or Sambhar.



  1. Healthy and yummy to eat with coconut chutney.

  2. I will go for the ordinary suji flour. My other half loves this and in fact, we try to eat on Sundays. That being in the restaurant. Now that I have seen your recipe, making it at home is going to be sweeping clean.

  3. Yummy.. Love this dosa Suja :-)
