Ragi Dosa-Instant Ragi Dosa Recipe-How to make Finger Millet Dosa

Ragi is known as finger millet in English and Kezhvaragu in Tamil. It is rich in calcium, protein, iron and is also a good source of fiber. It is said to be good for diabetic patients also.Today I am sharing 3 recipes for ragi or finger millet dosa. You can choose whichever is comfortable for you. The first one is prepared by grinding urad dal and mixing ragi flour, the second one is instant ragi dosa and the third one is made with leftover idli batter.

Recipe #1 (Picture above)

How to prepare Ragi dosa 

Ingredients needed 

Whole Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Ragi flour- 4 cups (You will get it ready made- I use anil ragi flour)
Salt as needed
Oil for making dosas (sesame seed oil preferable)

Preparation 

Wash and soak urad dal for 2-3 hours. Grind well until smooth and fluffy. Keep aside for 3 hours to ferment.

Then add ragi flour, salt needed and mix well so that there are no lumps. Add water if required to get dosa batter consistency.

Method 

Heat a dosa tawa, take a ladle of ragi dosa batter and spread it in circular motion. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa. Do not spread too thin like paper dosa.

Once it gets cooked, flip it over to the other side. Let the other side get cooked. Once cooked remove and serve hot with coconut  chutney or sambar. This dosa will be very soft and delicious.

Recipe #2 

Instant Ragi dosa 

Ingredients needed 

Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
Onion finely chopped - 1/4 cup
Green chilli - 1 finely chopped
Coriander leaves -finely chopped -1 tbsp
Curry leaves - few tender ones
Water - 2 1/2 cups
Oil for making dosa

Instant ragi dosa

Preparation

Mix ragi flour with hot water until there are no lumps. Then add onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, curry leaves and salt needed.

The batter should be thin like rava dosa batter.

Method 

Heat  dosa tawa, pour the batter from the outer corners of the tawa and fill the inside of the tawa just like rava dosa. You cannot spread this batter like normal dosa.

Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa. It will take time to get cooked, so have patience.

Once cooked flip it over to the other side and let the other side get cooked.

Remove from tawa and serve hot with chutney. This dosa will taste good only if taken hot from the tawa.

Recipe #3

Ragi dosa with leftover dosa batter

For 2 cups of dosa batter, mix 3/4 cup of ragi flour and make dosas as usual. Refer How to make Dosa for detailed instructions, recipe and pictures.

Note - I used ready made ragi flour.

  7. Dosa will be soft but not flimsy. May be you added more urad dal. Reduce it next time. By the way you did not mention which dosa recipe you tried. The first and the third recipe will not give any problems.The instant ragi dosa needs a little practice. Maybe you can add a little rice flour to it.
