I tried these Ragi Dosas for the first time last week........and I've already made them twice! they have become our favourite. So healthy too. 

I personally love Rava Dosas. So when I saw this recipe on Hebbars Kitchen which uses both Ragi flour and Rava in equal proportions, I immediately knew this recipe will be a keeper. They were so crispy and tasty with the ginger and onions.....smack! Can you believe its healthy???...........LOL!


ragi flour - 1/2 cup
rice flour - 1/4 cup
semolina/ rava - 1/2 cup
yoghurt - 1/4 cup ( see notes below)
ginger, grated - 1 tsp
green chilli, chopped - 1 
cumin - 1/2 tsp
curry leaves - 8
water - 1 and 3/4 cups
salt to taste
asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
whole pepper - 1/2 tsp (optional)
oil for making the dosas

onions, chopped - 1/2

  • In a bowl, mix together the ragi flour, rice flour and semolina. Add in rest of the ingredients including the vinegar if using. (except the oil)
  • Using a hand whisk, mix it well and fast. There must be no lumps. The batter will be watery.
  • Let it rest for about 20  minutes.
  • Take the dosa pan/skillet/non stick pan and heat it. the pan must be very hot.
  • Scoop up the batter in a glass or ladle and pour it onto the skillet starting from the outside making your way inward (same technique as the rava dosa) Cook on low flame
  • There will be holes in the dosa. 
  • Drizzle some oil /ghee.
  • Once the dosa is cooked and becomes crisp, turn it over.
  • Cook for another minute and then fold and remove from the pan.
  • Serve hot with any chutney or sambar
  • If the yoghurt is not sour you can add 1/4 tsp vinegar to the batter.
  • If the yoghurt is sour then you can stick to the recipe .
  • do not let the batter sit outside for too long as it will become too sour (since we have added yoghurt)
