  • Currently 4/5
from FoodNetwork.com

there is no rava in this recipe; it's pure rice flour so wheat gluten-free. and if you used vegetable oil or even coconut oil instead of clarified butter and used an egg substitute, this can be vegan.

also a thicker batter than traditional dosas, so perhaps just call it a pancake?

2 parts can be used separately as wrap or filling with other ingredients.

yields: 6 servings
1 c rice flour
1 tsp kosher salt
1 can (13 1/2-ounce) coconut milk
1 egg

rava is wheat, similar to semolina. maida, similar to pastry flour, is a finely ground wheat flour that is also an ingredient frequently used as well as rice flour. all rice makes for a rather crisp pancake. add some wheat flour to make it more pliable for rolling.
