4. Heat a non stick dosa pan on medium high heat. 
5. Take a spoon ful of batter and spread the batter from the outer side of the pan. (unlike the normal dosa which you spread from the inside out.)
6. Pour few drops of oil on top and let it cook for a couple of minutes on one side. 
7. Gently flip the dosa and cook until both the sides are golden brown.
8. Serve with coconut chutney and sambhar. You can also stuff it with masala and make rava masala dosa.
   - To make the dosa more crispier, increase the amount of rice flour.
   - You could also make grits dosai and cornmeal dosa using the same procedure.
