Rava Dose

This recipe is a small twist on one of our favorite breakfast/tiffin dish. Along with regular sooji/suji/rava/rave/semolina and rice flour, I have also added wheat germ to make the breakfast item more nutritious.


  • Rice flour -1 cup
  • Semolina/rava - 1/2 cup ( use the very fine kind here, know as chiroti rava in Kannada)
  • Wheat germ - 1/4 cup
  • Chopped or grated veggies- carrot and cilantro leaves
  • Cumin seeds - 1tsp
  • Water about 3-4 cups
* Can also add green chillies for more spice, grated zucchini and onions can also be used here.

  1. Mix all the above ingredients with salt and water to smooth batter( Batter should be thin, once poured over the hot griddle/tava it should from like lace) .
  2. Heat griddle on medium high heat, when hot pour the batter around little by little to from a circle .
  3. Let it roast for 2-3 mins on side, when sides starts to leave, flip/turn and cook the other side for a minute.
  4. Fold into semi-circle and serve with favorite side dish.

Simple, easy and healthy breakfast ready in minutes. Enjoy !
