Rava Flax Dosa

Rava flax dosa: A healthy and filling semolina and ground flax seeds crepes aka dosa would make a nice and tasty dinner or lunch .As I am posting Lunch or dinner recipes with flax seeds ,this dosa one of them.Adding ground flax seeds in idli or dosa batter would make it healthy and no one would even guess the presence of these seeds in it.

For me, making perfect South Indian style dosa is a life long that is never fulfilled.Whenever I try to make dosas either my  dosa batter is not properly fermented or it’s consistency is ruined  but I could never make them as Mr Husband wants. So sometimes to rescue myself from that as quoted by him “you can not make dosas”, I sometimes make not the original but almost like dosa,the semolina dosa. I don’t know for some reason I find it easier to shape the Rava dosa rather that making the traditional one. My daughters love them and enjoy every single bite of it.

    This version of rava dosa looks awesome. Usually out regular rava dosa is shapeless and using a very thin batter. Am trying this for breakfast tomorrow!

  13. I was looking for our regular rava dosa, which is very thin and lacey, these dosas sound interesting. Love the addition of flax seeds!
