RAGI DOSAI



Ragi or Finger millet is one of the staple food in many households of South India. In Tamil, it is called Kezhvaragu. It aids digestion, helpful for weight loss and good preferred food for diabetes. 

My grandmother's native is a small village named as Singampunari,located in Sivagangai district of Tamilnadu. She always prefer to have ragi recipes as breakfast most of the times. This came be prepared even with dosai/idli batter instantly.


INGREDIENTS: 

Ragi Flour - 1 cup 
Boiled rice - 1/2 cup
Urat dal - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste

Soak Rice and dal for 4 hours and then grind them smooth as Dosai batter consistency.

METHOD OF PREPARATION :

1) Mix all the ragi flour , dosa batter with water and salt .Properly mix them without lumps.


2) Heat dosa tawa ,pour 1 tsp of oil around the pan and spread the batter.Again pour oil to dosa edges . Wait till it cooked on one side , then flip to its side .


Serve hot with chutney / sambar .Sending this to Grammathu Kaimanam hosted by me and 15 minute cooking hosted my Mahima .
