      • Make the batter thin like butter Milk consistency, to get crispy dosa.
      • If you feel batter is so thin, add rice flour accordingly.
      • If you feel batter is thick, adjust water according to consistency.
      • Mix the batter everytime, when you pour the batter on the tawa/skillet,while making Rava dosa.
      • Every time,when you pour dosa,check batter consistency, it may tend to thick, after few dosa's.Then adjust water accordingly.
      • Adding Ginger & coriander leaves gives nice flavour to dosa.
      • if you feel dosa is thick, dilute the batter with needed water to get lacy dosa's.
      • Instead of oil, adding Ghee to make dosa gives nice taste to dosa.
