Calories in Rava Dosa

Rava Dosa

The regular dosa is a long drawn preparation and cooking procedure.  There are situations where there is an urgent need and no time to cook.  Ravadosa or instant dosa is the answer, because most Indian homes have the ingredients available in the kitchens.  Calories in one ravadosa are lower than in other dosas. Here rice is replaced by Rava/sooji/semolina which is a wheat product.

Because the calories in 1 dosa are low it is a favourite of nutritionists and dieticians.

Simply wash and chop the vegetables. Mix the flours and make into batter of pouring consistency.

Proceed as with all other dosas.
