  • ¾ cup ragi flour/ finger millet flour
  • 2 tablespoon rice flour
  • salt to taste
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds/ jeera
  • 2 tablespoon very finely chopped onions
  • ½ teaspoon finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped curry leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoon yogurt/curd
  • 2.5 cup water approximately
  • 3 tablespoon oil to smear on the dosas


Make the batter:

  • Take a mixing bowl, add the ragi flour, rice flour.
  • Add cumin seeds, finely chopped onions, green chillies chopped finely, chopped coriander leaves, chopped curry leaves.
  • Add yogurt into it and give a mix.
  • Add water and mix well using a beater and make sure the batter is without lumps.
  • The batter consistency should be slightly thin.
  • If the batter has not got a flowing consistency, add little more water and mix without lumps.
  • Add salt as per taste and mix the batter well.

Making of the ragi dosa:

  • Heat the tawa/girdle.
  • The tawa should be hot enough to make the crepe.
  • Brush oil to the tawa.
  • Take a ladle full of thin batter and cover the tawa by spreading thin layer all over.
  • It comes by practicing once or twice.
  • Smear oil all over the dosa and its corners.
  • Cook the bottom side on high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Carefully loosen all the corners once the bottom side is done well.
  • Flip the dosa very carefully .
  • Cook the other side too for at least 2 minutes.
  • Continue making dosa of the remaining batter in a similar way.
  • Serve hot with chutney.


  • Check taste of salt in the end and add more if required.
  • Add a table spoon fo rava or sooji if required and rest the batter for a while before making dosa.
  • Since this is an instant dosa I did not make use of rava/sooji.
  • Add ¼ teaspoon of grated ginger to enhance the flavor for a different taste and variation.
