RAGI DOSA

Ragi is  also called as kezhvaragu in Tamil.I always make instant ragi dosa at home. When amma was here when we were talking casually she told we can soak whole ragi seeds and make ragi dosa too. So tried the mom’s ragi dosa recipe and it was a super hit. Amma told the recipe using raw rice and i replaced with samai rice. You can add varagu too. Try including ragi in your diet as it has lot of health benefits. If you are looking for a healthy and super tasy crispy dosa,then try out this ragi dosa recipe. We had this ragi dosai with thakkali thokku and a glass of pudina chaas. Will post the recipe of chaas soon.

Hi,
Sorry for he delayed reply. IF using ragi flour ,soak only the rest of the ingredients and grind it. Once done mix the ragi flour to this and allow it to ferment. You can make dosas out of this once it is fermented. You can add 1 cup of flour
