Ragi Dosa

Ragi (fingermillet) is very high in protien and healthy. This time I prepared dosa with ragi flour.

salt to taste


Soak urad dal and methi seeds for 2 -3 hrs. Same time mix ragi flour with water. Grind urad dal to smooth paste. Add ground paste to ragi batter. Mix well. Add salt and allow it ferment for overnight or 4-6 hours. Heat tava.  Take a laddle full of batter and spread like paper dosa. Put oil on top and on side. Cook well. Serve with any chutney. I prepared coconut chutney with ragi dosa. It tasted excellent. My both daugthers liked it very much and of course hubby too.
