We are all big fans of South Indian food….is there anybody who isn’t?!
While I do make some of the usual suspects at home ( idli, uthapam, paniyarams, Pongal etc), dosa is something I haven’t been able to conquer. With conquer, I mean, not even passable. Until this Instant Ragi Dosa came into our lives and now its dosa night at least twice a week!
This wonderful recipe was very generously shared by a dear friend. I not only love the ease of making these but also that its made with Ragi or Fingermillet flour.
Ragi, also known as nachani, has a unique, rustic taste and immense health benefits. It’s a nutrient-rich cereal, which really does need to come to the fore. Ragi is loaded good quality protein, calcium, fiber, iron, and amino acids. It’s gluten-free and very easy to digest, perfect for people with gluten intolerance. You can read more about its benefits here.
Its a very versatile flour and can be used to make a variety of dishes – idlis, cakes, muffins, pancakes, cookies. You can be sure some of them will make their way on this blog! 🙂
I really enjoy amping up the batter with grated vegetables, lots of curry leaves, different fillings – potatoes, cauliflower & peas, paneer ( cottage cheese). My favorite is with any chutney, simple and yummy! They make a great school/work tiffin too.
