Raagi aka Finger millet is very nutritious whole grain and has been used for ages for its calcium abundance. I remember having raagi dosa long back as a kid when my grandma used to make these dosas( crepes ) exclusively for my grand father who was a diabetic. I still remember how much he used to love these dosas for its color, texture and never forget the earthy aroma. At first the color wasn't appetizing for me( as a kid ) but after the first bite i had fallen in love with the dosa instantly. Whenever i crave for something healthy and quick food, i opt in for these raagi dosas. So easy to make and so yummy in taste. I usually keep these raagi flour in store always ( preferably i will store in the refrigerator ). My sister made these and sent the pictures.. Thanks akka..



Ingredients:
  • 2 cups raagi flour
  • 1/2 - 1/3 cup rice flour( for crispy thin dosas ) -- depends on the rice flour quality
  • 1/2 - 1 cup thin buttermilk( sour buttermilk would be better ) or 1/3 cup beaten curd or yogurt
  • 1 tsp jeera( cumin seeds )
  • 1 onion chopped finely
  • bunch of coriander leaves chopped finely
  • 5 green chillies
  • 10 curry leaves
  • oil as required
  • salt to taste


Preparation:
  • Mix the dry ingredients raagi flour, rice flour and salt into a bowl
  • Add buttermilk and mix together
  • You will need to mix in water to bring into little thicker consistency than ravva dosa batter
  • Toss in onions, green chillies, curry leaves and coriander
  • Mix thoroughly and set aside for 15 - 30 mins( optional )
  • Heat griddle until sizzling hot and sprinkle some water
  • Pour the dosa batter just like ravva dosa, you need not spread it out
  • Add few drops of oil onto the edges and cook on both sides
  • Transfer to a plate and relish it while hot with coconut chutney or onion chutney.


Adding
buttermilk to the batter brings in that sourness that complements the subtle taste of raagi flour. These raagi dosas light, crispy and packed with full of flavor from the herbs( coriander, jeera and curry leaves ) the crunch from onions and the spice from green chillies. These Finger millet dosas make a perfect sumptuous healthy breakfast any time of the year! I would usually make these dosas a lot when friends or guests drop in all of a sudden. And the best compliments are just one of these dosas away!!!
