How To Prepare Ragi Dosa:

  • Wash and soak rice and urad dal for 2-3 hours.  Then grind them well until smooth.
  • To this ground batter add 1 cup of ragi flour, salt and 1/2 cup water and grind once again.  No fermentation of this batter is required and it can be used immediately.  The consistency of the batter should be like normal dosa batter.
  • Heat a non-stick tawa and grease it with oil. (If you are using a cast iron tawa, cut an onion into half and rub it all over the tawa -- The dosa will not stick to the tawa).
  • Take a ladle of batter, pour it in the centre and spread it around in a circular motion using the back of the ladle like we normally do for dosa.  DO NOT spread it too thin like a paper dosa.
  • Add 1 tsp of oil around and on the dosa .
  • When one side of the dosa is cooked, flip it over to the other side and cook till done.
  • Fold it in half and remove onto a plate.
  • Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
