Finger Millet Flour Thin Crepes/Pancake (Ragi Attu/Dosa/Kezhvaragu Dosai)

Indian Vegetarian Breakfast Special
Andhra/Kongunadu Cuisine

Finger Millet Flour Thin Crepes/Pancake (Ragi Attu/Dosa/Kezhvaragu Dosai)
Gluten Free Dieter's Delight!!

Serves 2 (makes about Dosas)

Finger Millet Flour (Ragi Atta)- 2 Cups
Rice Flour (Chawal ka Atta/Biyyam Pindi)- ½ Cup
Plain Yoghurt/ Curd- ½ Cup, preferably Sour & Whipped
Green Chillies- As Desired, Finely Chopped
Fresh Coriander Leaves (Dhania Patta/Kothimeera)- 1 Cup, Finely Chopped
Onions- ½ Cup, Finely Chopped
Salt- To Taste
Mix Ragi Flour, Rice Flour, Coriander Leaves, Green Chillies, Onions, Curd, Salt & enough Water to form a Rava Dosa consistency Batter
Set aside for at least 45 Minutes to an Hour
Heat Non Stick Griddle (Tawa), lightly grease with Oil
As Tawa turns hot, gently pour Batter with a Ladle & spread using a Circular motion to make a thin Dosa
Drizzle Oil on the Edges & on Top of the Dosa & Cook on one side
When crispy, turn over & Cook on the Other Side as well
Repeat the same procedure with the remaining Batter which will make about 14 more Dosas
Serve Fresh & Hot with Chutney!

If Fresh Flour isn’t available readily, then these ready made mixes are as good but make sure there are no preservatives

Along with Ragi, Buckwheat Flour is also Gluten Free

Traditionally Ghee is used to Grease the Dosas

Preferably the Attu tastes better with Sour Curd (Khatta Dahi/Pulla Perugu)

I tried to ask my mother if there was a susbstitute for Rice Flour, she said this is used to bind together the Fours used to make any Dosas

Finger Millet Flour (Kezhvaragu/Ragi Pindi) is a Traditional Grain high in Calcium and Protein, is perfect Baby Food, Diabetic Friendly & Gluten Free!
This healthy flour is used abundantly in Southern part of India especially as part of the Infant’s first Cereal Mix (Combination of Freshly Sprouted Green Gram, Peanuts, Ragi, Rice, wheat & Almonds are Sun Dried & Ground into Powder)
