Instant Ragi Dosa, made with Ragi Flour a quick and nutritious breakfast option.
No fermentation and grinding of batter.
Dosas are Indian crepes made with fermented rice and split gram lentil(urad dal) batter. Rice and letils are soaked for 6-7 hrs, grind in fine paste and then kept for fermentation. Soaking, grinding and fermenting the batter takes around a day. Also, many people these days avoid Rice and Urad lentil due to health reasons and opting for much more healthy options that can be prepared without putting in so much of time and efforts.
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. I like to use if quite often for making quick and nutritious dishes like Instant Ragi Idli. Ragi Buttermilk nutritious drink for summers that keeps the body cool in extreme heat. Makes these Wheat and Ragi and Edible Gum Ladoos or quick and easy Ragi and Dried Fruits ladoos for kids for their snacks or lunch boxes.

How to make Nutritious Ragi Dosa
I make Ragi Dosa very often for breakfast as it is takes just a few minutes for preparing and cooking. Healthy nutritious and delcious.
Since Ragi is a gluten-free flour, I add some rice flour or besan to it to make it crispy. You can use Tapioca flour or cornstarch also in case you do not want to add rice flour.
Mix all ingredients together, make batter of flowing consistency, keep for a resting time of at least 15 mins.
When the griddle is hot enough, pour batter on griddle, spread in a circular disc and cook on both sides.
I also add some flaxseed flour , you can skip it or grind some flax seeds into fine powder and add to it. Flax seeds are rich in Omega-3 , antioxidants, fibres along with minerals and vitamins. I like to add flaxseed flour in roti dough, multigrain breads and cakes and cookies.
