Rava Dosa

Rava Dosa
Rava dosa is a popular South Indian dosa variety. Making rava dosa is very easy and the best part is that no grinding or fermentation is required. This dosa is named after the main ingredient used here. Along with rava, rice flour and all purpose flour (maida) are also added to the batter. You can make the rava dosa plain or you can spice it up by adding chopped onions, curry leaves, herbs and spices. All the three terms sooji, rava, semolina and cream of wheat mean the same. the batter of semolina dosa is thin as compared to traditional rice-based dosa batter which yields crisp and flaky dosa. It can be ideally served for any occasions, but generally served for morning breakfast with spicy Coconut chutney, tomato chutney etc.

Simple, but sticks to pan. I will use non stick pan next time. Also not sure what you mean by sprinkle with hand.
