Instant Ragi Dosa

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.

Health Benefits of Ragi (Finger-millet)

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.

Instant Ragi ( Fingermillet) Dosa

Author: Natasha Minocha


  • 1 cup Ragi / fingermillet flour
  • 1/2 cup Rice flour Brown rice flour works just as well
  • 1 Green chilli, chopped fine
  • 12-15 Curry leaves I left them whole
  • 1 pinch Hing/ asafoetida
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Yogurt
  • 2 cups Water I added a little more
  • Oil for making dosa


  • Combine the flours, green chillies, curry leaves, hing and salt in a large bowl.
  • Whisk in the yogurt and one cup of water. Let this rest for 15 minutes. Add in another cup of water to make the batter very thin. I needed to add about 1/4 cup more.
  • Heat your griddle till hot. Lightly grease it and pour a ladle of the batter all over the pan, as evenly as you can. Don't spread the batter with a spatula.
  • Let it cook for a 30-40 seconds. Carefully flip it over and cook on the other side for another 30-40 seconds. Continue with the rest of the batter. Serve hot!
