Rava dosa tastes best right off the stove. It get hard as it stays. So its not a good idea to pack it for office.

How to spread the batter with the onion and ginger pieces?
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (March 10, 2014)
You pour the batter from the outside.... You cannot spread it so pour it in a thin layer... Thats the reason the batter should be very watery....
