  • 100 gm Surti Kolam Rice or Dosa Rice soaked in water for 5-6 hours
  • 250 ml Water to prepare the batter
  • Oil for greasing
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 Onion (Optional) to spread Oil across the Tawa


  • Soak the Rice for 5-6 hours or overnight.
  • Get a mixer grinder and grind the soaked Rice into a fine paste. Don't forget to add some Water (~ 50 ml) or as needed.
  • Add Water (200 ml) and Salt to this mixture and mix it well. Make sure you get a very thin consistency for the batter.
  • Heat a Dosa Tawa on medium-high flame and grease it nicely with some Oil. You may use an Onion, Pastry Brush or Kitchen Paper to grease the pan.
  • Once the Tawa is hot enough, pour the batter and spread it evenly on the surface.
  • Cover the Tawa for 2-3 minutes and wait for the Ghavan to cook thoroughly.
  • When the Ghavan starts leaving the edges, take it out in a plate and serve it with Coriander Chutney or Coconut Ras.



  • There is no need to flip this Dosa. You just have to cook it properly on one side.
  • You can also make these instant Crepes by soaking the Rice grains for 30-40 mins. 
  • Use 1:2.5 Rice to Water ratio to prepare a very thin consistency batter.
