Instant Millet Dosa
Ragi/ Finger Millet is rich in calcium, protein, iron and is also a good source of fiber. It is said to be good for diabetic patients too.
- ½ cup ragi/nachni (finger millet) flour
- 1-2 cups warm water
- ¼ cup finely chopped onion
- 1 green chilli, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
- 4-5 curry leaves, finely chopped
- ½ tsp unrefined salt
Mix ragi flour with warm water until there are no lumps. Then, add onion, green chilli, coriander leaves, curry leaves and salt. The batter should be thin.
Heat the dosa tawa (pancake griddle), pour a ladleful of batter from the outer corners of the tawa and fill the inside of the tawa. You cannot spread this batter like a normal dosa.
It will take time to cook dosa, so have patience. Keep the heat medium to high. Once cooked, turn it over and allow the other side to get cooked.
Remove the dosa from the tawa and serve hot with chutney or sambar. This dosa will taste good only when served hot, direct from the tawa. If you have difficulty in preparing this style of ragi dosa, you should prepare like regular dosas. Add less water in batter and make small regular dosa.
Any other millet flour may be used instead of ragi.
