BM #135 Week 3 Day 3 - 

The last recipe this week is this nutritious Ragi Dosa. I customized the recipe  to avoid using rice. This works very well with the regular Dosa batter as well.

The kids also didn't mind the color of the dosas as it had no great impact on the taste. I found this to be a very good way to get the kids to consume Ragi.

Ingredients - 

Dosa Batter 3 Cups
Ragi Flour 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup
Oil to shallow fry Dosas
For Dosa Batter - 
Note ** Any Dosa batter can be used. I used the following..
Urad Dal 1/2 cup
Chana Dal handful
Foxtail Millet 1 1/2 cups
Fenugreek seeds 1 tsp
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak urad dal, chana dal, fenugreek seeds for 4-6 hours. Wash and soak foxtail millet for 4-6 hours.

Drain and grind the dals into a fine batter adding as much water as needed. Add in the foxtail millet and grind until the millet is coarsely ground.

Remove the batter into a big pot. Add salt to taste and gradually add Ragi flour and mix well. Set aside for fermentation in a warm place. 

When ready to prepare Dosas, whisk the batter and check for salt. Adjust the consistency of the batter and add water if needed.

In a heated cast iron griddle, brush with oil and wipe it with a paper towel or a cut onion.

Sprinkle a few drops of water and after they sizzle and evaporate, pour a ladleful of batter and spread it into a circular shape making it as thin as possible.

Drizzle oil on the edges, cover and let it cook.

Once the underside is golden brown, flip it and let the other side cook a little as well. (This is optional but I prefer it.)

Remove onto a plate and continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve them hot with Pappula Podi and Peanut Chutney.


Preparation Time 30 minutes + Soaking time 8 hours + fermentation time 12 hours
Makes 24-25 Dosas
