Rava Masala Dosa is a South Indian delicacy and can be made with so many variations. Dosa is so similar to crepes in texture and appearance. My first encounter to this heavenly thing was in an Indian restaurant where most of the things in the menu were "South Indian" and i had no idea about many of them. So after taking a long pause i ordered Dosa but this Royal name "Rava Masala Dosa" attracted me so much that i couldn't stop myself from ordering this specific one from the menu where there were many other types of dosas present.
To my surprise it was so mouth melting, crsipy as well as had a softness to it. The outer crisp and inner velvety texture was so delightful. They served it with samber, coconut chutney and potato curry. I liked it plain and with potato curry too. My kids equally liked it and were happily consuming with me. It had been in my priority list for a while and then i finally decided to give it a try at home. It was so simple to make and turned out so so good.
