Instant Ragi Dosa | Finger Millet Dosa

I make this dosa as my breakfast for most of the days. It is easy to cook and there is no fermentation and no grinding process involved. Check out my another recipe for a quick fix Oats Dosa.

Let me first tell the health benefits of ragi which made me to start eating it.
  • Substitute ragi instead of rice and you will find a great difference in ur weight loss. It controls obesity.
  • It can be taken by all diabetic patients; since it has low glycemic index. It results in slow increase of blood sugar level.
  • It can surely be taken in this hot weather. It turns out your body literally cool.
  • It is very rich in calcium, so you can surely replace ur calcium pills with ragi.
  • The rich source of fiber in it controls the blood cholesterol levels.

After knowing all this benefits, who will not follow eating it? Then why wait for… let’s go to the recipe straight away.


½ cup of ragi flour
¼ cup of wheat flour
1tbsp rice flour
Salt as needed


  • Mix all the flour along with salt in a large mixing bowl.

  • Add water to it and make like a thin dosa batter. Take care there is no lumps in between.

  • Heat the dosa tawa/pan and pour the batter (as like rava dosa). Drizzle oil to the sides of the dosa.

  • Cook on both sides in medium flame.

  • Serve hot with any chutney of choice.


If ragi flour is not cooked properly, there is chance of indigestion. So take care u cook it to the perfection


If u like to enhance the flavor try adding chopped onions and green chillies on top of it or mix with the batter.
