Oil for sautéing and making dosa
Cumin seeds 1/2 tea spoon

How to make Restaurant Style Onion Rava Dosa?

Mix all the flours together in a broad vessel with required salt and pour water to make a batter. It should be thinner than the regular dosa batter. Set aside for 1 to 1 and 1/2  hours.

Heat a pan with 2 tea spoons of oil. Do the seasoning with Cumin seeds. Once they splutter add the green chillies, curry leaves, ginger, pepper corns and stir for few seconds.


Then add the onions too and give a stir. After the stuff get cooled transfer them to the batter.

Now heat a Dosa Tawa and grease it with oil. Take a  ladle full of batter and pour it on the tawa from the edges towards the centre. Fill up the bigger gaps if any.

Sprinkle some oil on and around the dosa.

Wait it gets cooked and edges become brown. Flip off and let the other side also gets cooked.

Now the Dosa is ready to serve with Milagai podi, Sambar and Chutney.


If the Batter is not in right consistency you will get thicker dosas without crispiness.

In that case add some more water and make dosas.

After making each dosa, stir the batter well and take the batter in the ladle to make fresh dosa.
