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.
|Ragi flour/Finger millet flour||1/2 cup|
|Wheat flour||1/4 cup|
|Curry leaves||1 sprig|
|Butter milk(optional) or water||As needed|
2. Heat dosa pan, drizzle with oil and pour as we do for rava dosa,drizzle some more oil and cook both sides in medium flame.
Serve hot with your favourite chutney! Tangy,hot or simply coconut chutney or milagai podi!

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.

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