Written Instructions


  • Finely chop the onion, coriander leaves, curry leaves, and green chili.

Making the batter

  • For the batter, Take a bowl and add Ragi Flour, Rice flour, and Rava

  • To this add the chopped onions, cumin seeds, finely chopped green chili, coriander leaves, curry leaves, and salt. Mix it well

  • Now, add 2 cups of water and make a runny batter. Mix it thoroughly so that it does not have any lumps.

  • Add the remaining 1 cup water and mix it well for a thin and a runny consistency

  • Ragi dosa batter is ready.

  • At any point, if the batter feels thicker, add 1/4 cups of water.

Making the dosa

  • Place a tava/girdle on medium flame and wait for it to get hot

  • The pouring of this dosa is a little different than conventional dosa

  • The batter is runny. So it is poured on the girdle in a circular motion and left to settle. Fill in the big gaps by pouring extra batter as needed. Please check the video.

  • Spread half tsp oil around and some in the gaps and cook for about 1 min. The edges will separate.

  • Flip and cook for about 15-30 sec or until done.

Enjoy this hot dosa with coconut or peanut chutney! Spicy chutney adds more taste and flavor.
