Idli is a popular and staple breakfast of South India. Ragi | Finger millet is a very healthy whole grain with lots of health benefits. We usually use Ragi flour in most of the recipes like puttu, idiyappam, ragi soup, and many more. Ragi is very healthy for babies too. We make sprouted ragi flour at home and make porridge out of it and give it to babies. Healthy experts say that Ragi is very good for diabetics, weight loss and may help in hormonal imbalances in women.

We usually use Idli rice or any millet like varagu | kutharaivali while making ragi idli batter. But this one is only with 2 main ingredients. We are using Whole ragi and urad dal for making this Ragi idli dosa.

Any millet batter tends to ferment very soon than the regular idli batter. But in winter you can keep this for fermentation for 10 – 12 hours. I learned this recipe from my dear friend Banu. She makes it very often at home.

Notes

1. You can grind the batter in mixie, but grind in batches and use cold water for grinding the batter.
2. In summer this batter tends to ferment very quickly, so do not keep the ragi idli dosa batter for a very long time.
