How to cook Onion Rava Dosa at home - Onion Rava Dosa Recipe

Here's a recipe for Onion Rava Dosa, a popular South Indian crepe made with semolina (rava) and onions:


  • 1 cup semolina (rava)
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed
  • Oil for cooking


  1. In a mixing bowl, add semolina, rice flour, all-purpose flour, chopped onions, green chilies, coriander leaves, cumin seeds, black pepper, grated ginger, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Gradually add water to the mixture and whisk until you get a smooth and thin batter. The batter should be pourable consistency, similar to a crepe batter. Set it aside for 15-20 minutes to allow the rava to absorb the water.
  3. Heat a non-stick tawa or griddle on medium-high heat. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the tawa to check if it's hot enough. The water should sizzle and evaporate immediately.
  4. Grease the tawa lightly with oil. Stir the batter well and pour a ladleful of batter onto the tawa.
  5. Starting from the center, quickly spread the batter in a circular motion to form a thin and lacy dosa. Drizzle a little oil around the edges of the dosa.
  6. Cook the dosa on medium heat until the edges turn golden brown and crispy. Flip it over and cook for a minute on the other side.
  7. Remove the dosa from the tawa and serve it hot. Repeat the process with the remaining batter to make more dosas.

Your homemade Onion Rava Dosa is now ready to be served. It is typically enjoyed with coconut chutney or sambar. The crispy texture and delicious onion flavor make it a delightful meal. Enjoy your dosa.
