About the Recipe
If you are in need of a quick, easy and instant Dosa recipe using nutritious Ragi Flour, you are on the right page. A healthy, protein rich, instant recipe to make dosa or savoury crepe using Ragi/Finger Millet Flour which requires no soaking and grinding of the ingredients and fermentation of the batter.
Why Instant Dosa recipes
Dosa is savory Indian crepe (can crisp or soft) made with fermented rice and split gram lentil(urad dal) batter. To make dosa batter rice and lentils are soaked for 6-7 hrs, grind in fine paste and then kept for fermentation. Preparing dosa batter takes around a day. Instant Dosa recipes do not require all above preparation. It is a 15-20 min. preparation time which makes these recipes ideal for those with busy morning schedules.
Ragi a Nutritious Millet
Ragi or Finger Millet is one of the healthiest flour that is gluten-free and very nutritious. It is rich in fibre, calcium, iron and has cooling properties. It is also a natural relaxant and due to significant amount of Vit. C and A it is very good for hair, skin and overall general health.
I like to use it quite often for making quick and nutritious dishes like this Instant Dosa, Idli, Ragi porridge. You can also add some Ragi flour to your chapati Atta (whole wheat flour) while making chapatis.

Ingredients to make Instant Ragi Dosa
Ragi Flour- Use a good quality Ragi Flour. Avoid using flour that is kept for long time, as it may give a rancid smell or after taste.
Rice Flour- Ragi is a gluten-free flour, I add some rice flour to it to make it crispy. You can use tapioca flour or cornstarch also in case you do not want to add rice flour.
Flaxseeds- I also like to add flaxseed powder. You can skip it or may add sesame seeds. Flax seeds are rich in Omega-3 , antioxidants, fibre along with minerals and vitamins.
Other Ingredients- Fresh Coriander leaves, Ginger, Green Chillies(add as required), Red Chilli powder (optional and as required), Cumin seeds, Salt as per taste.
Use Desi Ghee or any flavorless oil for cooking dosa.
