Instant Ragi Dosa Recipe

                                                                  I have always included ragi flour in my chapathi flour(wheat flour)to make chapthis daily and tried the ragi kanji sometimes but i have not tried any other recipe.I have just started making  dosas with ragi flour.Considering its health benefits i include ragi in my dishes and make things out of ragi flour.
Ragi dosa is a easy to make and it tastes best when eaten hot.It takes a little longer to cook than the normal dosa.You can add a few tbs of ragi flour to our normal dosa dough and make dosa too.Include ragi flour in your dosa and chapathi dough and enjoy its helath benefits.

You will Need
  • One cup Ragi Flour
  • 1/4 cup Rice flour
  • One tsp Cumin seeds
  • One Onion finely chopped
  • Two Green chillies finely chopped
  • Half cup Buttermilk
  • Water to mix to consistency
  • Salt to taste
