  • 1 bowl of finger millet flour/ragi flour
  • 1 medium sized onion very finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
  • salt - to taste
  • water to knead the dough
  • 2 tbsp oil to fry/roast the roti


  • Firstly, in a bowl, add finely chopped onions, add finely chopped green chillies.
  • Add finely chopped fresh coriander leaves and salt as per taste.
  • Add ragi flour into it and mix the whole mixture.
  • Add water gradually and knead the flour and make a dough.
  • Take a portion of the dough(not too small).
  • Make a round ball.
  • Place the tawa on the stove and do not switch it on.
  • Grease oil all over the tawa.
  • Put the roti on the tawa and spread it with your fingers to form a chapati shape.
  • Now switch on the stove.
  • Cook the roti well.
  • Apply oil on top of the roti.
  • Flip the roti and cook the other side too.
  • When both sides are cooked well take it out and serve hot.
  • Serve hot with dal or pickle or chutney or curry.


Important Points:
1.Do not heat the tawa when the roti is being spread on tawa and if done so there are chances of burning the fingers.
2. For the second roti reduce the temperature of the tawa fully and start making the ragi roti and then switch the stove on.
3.Greasing the tawa/gridle before making the roti is a must as the roti cannot be spread if the tawa is not greased well.
4.Always make sure the tawa should be cool before spreading the roti to avoid burning of fingers.
