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. Its full of good quality protein, calcium, fiber, iron and amino acids. Its 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 favourite is with any chutney, simple and yummy! They make a great school / work tiffin too.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. I’d love to see your creations! Do leave a comment below and share a picture on INSTAGRAM using the hashtag #tashasartisanfoods !
