Rawa Dosa – How to make Rawa Dosa


  • sooji / rawa – 1 cup
  • green chillies – 5
  • (increase or decrease the
  • quantity depending on your spice level)
  • jeera – half a tsp (optional)
  • onions – 2 medium
  • cilantro – a small bunch
  • curry leaves – a few
  • coconut grating – about two tbsp.
  • salt to ta


  • Fry rawa like you would for upma. (I fry rawa in big quantities and store for ready use. In fact, this prevents the rawa from getting spoilt/worms too.) allow it to cool a bit.
  • Finely chop onions, green chillies & cilantro (coriander leaves) and add it to the rawa.
  • Add salt, zeera, curry leaves and required amount of water for dosa consistency & mix really well. After a few minutes you will notice that the batter absorbs water and becomes thicker. Add little more water and mix well till you get the right consistency. When the consistency is okay, start making dosas.
  • Grease the griddle / tawa well. Add oil droplets to the dosa to cook it well on both sides.
  • When the dosa starts browning faintly in patches, you know it’s done. Smear a little ghee on the dosa(sometimes it’s okay to forget the calorie-count!).
Health Tips:

Regularly consuming foods and drinks high in sugar increases your risk of obesity and tooth decay.

Sugary foods and drinks are often high in energy (measured in kilojoules or calories), and if consumed too often can contribute to weight gain. They can also cause tooth decay, especially if eaten between meals.

Free sugars are any sugars added to foods or drinks, or found naturally in honey, syrups and unsweetened fruit juices and smoothies.

This is the type of sugar you should be cutting down on, rather than the sugar found in fruit and milk.

Many packaged foods and drinks contain surprisingly high amounts of free sugars.

Free sugars are found in many foods, such as:

sugary fizzy drinks
sugary breakfast cereals
pastries and puddings
sweets and chocolate
alcoholic drinks
Food labels can help. Use them to check how much sugar foods contain.
