My paati being diabetic, my mom always prepares special diabetic diet recipes for her dinner. Other than roti, she makes tiffin items with ragi. She makes sweet adai, savoury adai, idiyappam, puttu, kanji(porridge) both sweet and salted and these dosas. Those days, I was not so fond of those tiffin items. My mom will remind me that I used to drink sweet kanji when I was a baby and used to be chubby then.During my teens I was so so lean and weak and she used to struggle a lot to make me eat nutritious food and I used to escape in all ways!
But after I started cooking, I buy ragi flour and make at least dosa with it once in a while. But now, my kid wont even touch it, my hubby also is a big enemy to healthy food items like ragi, oats! So I make this only for myself. Its easy to make in morning times also we will feel full tummy to kick start the day. I simply eat with buttermilk and idli podi. I have given the best combo chutney how ever, goes well with this dosa. The ingredients given makes 5-6 dosas.

Instant Ragi dosa recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 5 mins per dosa   Makes: 6

Onion   1
Green chilli  1 
Curry leaves  1 sprig 
Cumin/jeera  1 tsp 
Salt  as needed 
Butter milk(optional) or water  As needed 


Method

  1. Take ragi,wheat flour, chopped onions,green chilli, torn curry leaves, cumin,salt in a bowl and add enough butter milk or water to make thin batter.

RED CHILLI CHUTNEY RECIPE FOR RAGI DOSA


    This chutney is very nice combo for ragi dosa. Easy to make too! My mom makes this with even idli / dosa. The chutney requires simplest ingredients in your pantry and the key is to balance all the three – chilli-salt-tamarind. Its perfect for the bland ragi dosa.


Ingredients

Red chillies 5-6
Tamarind 1 tblsp tightly packed
Salt as needed
Onion,chopped 2 tblsp

To temper

Oil 2 tsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Curry leaves few

 

Method



  1. Grind red chillies, tamarind and salt with 1/4 cup water until very smooth. transfer to a bowl.
  2. Temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table and add onion and fry till golden brown and mix it to the chutney we ground.

Notes

  • For Ragi dosa, adding water or buttermilk is your choice. I usually mix with water as I don’t like to mix with butter milk. But my mom always uses butter milk, atleast a little.
  • If you have left over sour idly/dosa batter, you can add a laddle full of that to this batter.
  • You can replace wheat flour with rice flour too. But wheat flour is recommended if you make for diabetic.
  • For the chilly chutney, its very important to balance the hotness,tanginess and salt to get the perfect taste. If its too hot, add more tamarind or salt to tally the heat. 

That’s it! Mix well and enjoy as an accompaniment with any dosa or idly…

  55. Great article, great images. you just made my day. I had not known the goodness of ragi until I stumbled upon the below article.

    Please Add a link to goodness of Ragi in this article somewhere. Not many know about it.

  56. Hi Raks,

    I tried out the ragi dosa as per ur recipe...The otherside of dosa which was under the tawa was dry...Can u figure out why ?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sush,
    You can try covering the dosa with a lid while its cooking(before flipping,untill you flip), sometimes it happens, make sure when you pour the dosa batter the tawa is hot enough to cook it instantly, if it takes time, then I think it has some white dry spots...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hey, this was nice. I make it a little differently.
    I soak 1 cup urad dall for 3 hours and then grind it. To that I add 4 cups ragi flour, salt, zeera and make dosa. This also tastes good.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi Raji,
    For CHutney we have to use raw red chillies or fried red chillies. Please clarify my doubt
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  60. A little sooji can be added to the batter. This will make the dosas crispier.

    ReplyDelete
  61. lovely shots and just the kind of recipe I was looking for. Thanks for sharing.

  62. Hi,
    Instead of buttermilk, can we use yogurt?

    1. Yes, you can use 2-3 tablespoons and mix water.

  63. I made this. It tasted awesome. Dosa didn't come out perfect like yours. But I was not using the traditional dosa pan. Is that the reason.?

    ReplyDelete

    1. What exactly is the problem, let me know...

      Delete
  64. Dosa did not come out well. I used a stainless steel tawa not the dosa pan. I guess that is the reason.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh ok, if other dosas come out good, then this too has to come out rite. Either too thin (more water)stick to pan or too thick (less water) will break. Do try in nonstick or iron pan next time...

  65. Raagi dosa was really good thanks take kitchen:-)

    3. hi Rak's,
      i have a doubt. without adding rice flour.. will it be easy to flip-flop?

      Delete
    4. Yes sure, because ragi flour by itself has that texture and we are adding wheat flour too, so no need for rice flour
