Ragi Dosa...

Finger millet or ragi is so well-known for its health benefits. Full of proteins and being a great source of minerals makes it perfect to start your day with an energy-packed breakfast. Try it in any form you like - say vermicelli, kanji, kool or dosa or else

Do you use millets in your diet??? If no then I guess you should try a few. Nowadays all the supermarkets are having a lot of  varieties of millets piled up. If not all, atleast we can pick up a few and try to include them in our diet. Here, try this super simple and healthy ragi dosa. A very quick and easy way to include a little healthy stuff in your diet. My kids love this so I make sure they have it atleast once in a week

My kids hate gothuma/wheat flour dosai. So if  I am on the lookout for some kind of dosa other than the reguar kind, also something which is easy to pull together without much effort then I go for this. No need to ferment so I find it easy to include it in our breakfast

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Hot with sambar

This is what u'll need....

Ragi Flour - 2 cup
Rice Flour - 3/4 cup
Urad dal powder - 1/4 cup
Curd - 1/4 cup
Water - as needed
Salt to taste

For filling ->
Sesame seeds - 2 tbspn
Onion - 1 medium
Green chilli - 1
Chopped Coriander leaves - 2 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
    • Measure in 2 cups of ragi flour into a wide bowl
    • Add 3/4  cup rice flour into it
    • Now add 1/4 cup of urad dal flour into it. If you dont have urad dal powder then you can soak some dal for about an hour and grind it to a fine paste adding water little by little
    • Add some salt 
    • Spoon in 1/4 cup of curd into the flour mix
    • Add water little by little and whisk it into thin dosa batter consistency. Make sure there are no lumps
    • Cover it with a lid and let it rest for about half an hour. You can even make it instantly
    • Toast some sesame seeds and let it cool. Once cool enough coarsely powder half the sesame seeds
    • For filling - > To a bowl, add chopped coriander, sliced onions, finely chopped green chilli and coarsely ground sesame seeds. Sprinkle some salt and mix it together

    • Heat a tawa and spoon in batter. Use you ladle to make it into a dosa. Drizzle a few drops of oil. Cover it with a lid and let it cook it on medium flame for about 30-40 seconds
    • If you want you can sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds as soon as you spread the batter
    • Once cooked spoon in the filling and spread it on half the dosa
    • Fold into half and serve hot

                                            • Instead of using rice flour and urad dal separate, you can use 1+1/4 cup of dosa batter if you have 
                                            • Filling is absolutely optional
                                            • Sesame seeds add special touch to the taste. Kids will love it.... or I should say my kids love it
