Ragi Dosai – Instant Finger Millet Dosai
This Ragi Dosai is a quick dosa and perfect for a weeknight dinner. One can make the Instant Finger Millet Dosai in less than 30 minutes and hence a perfect one for busy days/nights
Servings: 15 Dosais
- 1 cup Ragi flour
- ¼ cup Wheat flour
- ¼ cup Rice flour
- 1 large Onion Finely chopped
- 2 Green chilies Finely chopped
- ½ inch piece Ginger Grated finely
- few Curry leaves
- ½ teaspoon Mustard seeds
- 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds / jeeragam
- ¾ cup Buttermilk Preferably sour
- to taste Salt
- 1 teaspoon Oil
Mix all the flours in a wide bowl. Add the buttermilk and enough salt and mix well. Now add water to make it into a very thin batter. The batter should be much thinner than regular dosai batter.
In a small pan, heat 1 teaspoon of oil. Add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, green chilies, ginger, and curry leaves. Let it fry for a minute and then add it to the prepared dosai batter. Add the chopped onions as well and mix.
Heat a griddle/Tawa on medium-high heat. Once the Tawa is heated through very well, pour the batter from outside to inside to form a circle. The dosai will have holes and spaces in them (just like Rawa dosai). Add a little oil around the edges and let it cook.
Once cooked, flip over the dosai and let it cook on the other side.
Remove from the griddle and then repeat the same with the rest of the batter.
Serve with your favorite chutney or sambhar! I served it with some peanut chutney.
- The dosai cane be made only with ragi and wheat flour and you could leave the rice flour. In that case use ½ cup of wheat flour instead of ¼ cup. If making for a diabetic person, I would leave the rice flour out.
- The dosai will be darker than the regular dosai, since the ragi flour is dark in color.
- Adding onions adds a sweet flavor to the dosai. If needed onions can be omitted.
- Sprouted ragi flour can be added instead of the regular ragi flour. It adds more nutrition to the recipe.
- The seasoning ingredients can also be added directly without frying. When I am short on time, I add everything along with the batter and make dosa.
- If making the dosai vegan, then skip the buttermilk and use all water.
