RAVA DOSA WITH MINT AND ONION CHUTNEY

Rave dosa is one among the varities of dosa's. I make them offen and its my favourite. Most of the people grind the mint leaves as it is. But my mom makes it entirly different frying mint leaves with rest of the ingredients. She used to make mint chutney offen when I returned from school and we used to take some for my grandpa who too loves soo much. Onion chutney is familiar to all and would be all's favourite. Isn't? Mint and onion chutneys goes well with dosa and idlies.



INGREDIENTS FOR MINT CHUTNEY.

1 Bunch Mint leaves.

1/2 Bunch Coriander leaves.

1/4 Cup Grated Coconut.

2 Green chillies.

3 to 4 Cloves of Garlic.

1 tbsp Grated Ginger.

2 tbsp lime juice.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Heat oil in a pan. Add garlic, ginger and green chilly. Fry those till the raw smell goes out. Add rest of the ingredients except lime juice and fry for 2 min. Allow it to cool. Grind the mixture with lime juice. Serve.


INGREDIENTS FOR ONION CHUTNEY.

1 Big chopped Onion.

2 Red chilli.

Small lemon sized tamarind.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.
(Instead of tamarind, you can add 1 small tomato. It gives extra colour)

METHOD.

Heat oil in pan. Add the chopped onions, red chilli , tamarind , (tomato) and salt. Fry for 1 min till the onion changes its colour. Make sure to keep the flame under medium heat. Allow the mixture to cool. Grind the mixture into a smooth paste. Transfer them into the bowl and dizzle with coconut oil.


INGREDIENTS FOR RAVA DOSA.

1 1/2 Cup Rava.

1/2 Cup Rice flour.

1/4 Cup Curd.

1 tsp Jeera.

1/2 tsp Grated Ginger.

Few Curry leaves.

Water for making batter.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Mix all the ingredients given above in a bowl and leave the batter sit atleast for 1 hour.
Grease a non stick griddle with oil. Spread the batter evenly. Pour oil around the dosa for roasting its sides. When the dosa are well cooked on the top, spread the mint chutney and remove from griddle.

Serve it with delicious onion chutney.



Enjoy!!

Thanks for the comment Suma.Yes you can definitely try this with puff pastry and even pie crusts.Roll it out a little thinly and spread cream cheese,top it with filling of your choice and cut into wedges,roll up and then bake.the time may be a little bit more though,go for 400F and start with 10 minutes.Its instant rugelach with puff pastry/pie crust
