In a casual conversation with my sister-in-law, we were discussing as to how we could sneak in Ragi into our daily foods. One such easy way is to add it to the dosa batter. To mask the taste of ragi, various spices and veggies can be added. 

In this particular recipe, I used Idli batter as that was readily available. The same Uthappam can be prepared with Dosa batter if available. I made this for the kids and they ate without complaining! That itself is a compliment, Isn't that true?

Ragi Uthappam

Ingredients -

Ragi Flour 1/2 cup
Idli Batter 2 cups
Onion finely chopped 1/4 cup
Cumin Powder 1 tsp
Pepper Powder a pinch
Salt as per taste
Hing a pinch

Note - Addition of all kinds of vegetables and ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves would be a nice variation too

Method Of Preparation - 

Mix all the ingredients and add a little water to adjust the consistency.

On a hot tawa/griddle pour ladleful of batter and spread it in a circular fashion and spray oil if required and cook on both sides.

Continue for the rest of the batter or store the batter in the refrigerator. 

Preparation Time 15 min 
Makes 5 Uthappams
