Orange Rava Dosa

Orange Rava Dosa

One day I tried to make orange juice in a weird way. I took out orange wedges, put in the blender and blended finely. Then filtered it to extract juice, but could get only a glass full of juice with so many oranges and more of orange pulp. I didn't want to waste the orange pulp, so thought of using it in some recipe and stored it in the refrigerator for a day. The next day I got the idea of making dosas with the pulp. DH and kids laughed at the idea of an orange dosa, but they agreed that it tasted great when I made it.

Orange Rava Dosa
A closer shot

  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 cup Semolina
  • 1 cup Orange Pulp
  • 3 or 4 Green Chilies
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • Few Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Salt
  • Oil
Orange Rava Dosa Batter
  1. First grind green chilies + curry leaves + cilantro into a fine paste. Keep aside.
  2. In a wide bowl mix together rice flour + semolina + orange pulp + cumin seeds and make into a thin batter. Add salt as required. 
  3. The batter should be pouring consistency. Add the green chili paste to the batter and mix well.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan. Then take a ladleful of batter, first pour around the edges of the pan in a circle and quickly fill in the circle to make it into a big circle. 
  5. Pour some oil around the dosa and let the dosa cook for a while. 
  6. Then flip it over and pour some more oil (optional). 
  7. When it is cooked on both sides, remove from the pan and transfer to a serving plate.
  8. Repeat the same process until required amount of dosas are done. 
  9. We enjoyed our dosas with Peanut Chutney
  10. Yummy!!
