Oil / Ghee – For making dosa
1. Measure all the ingredients and keep everything ready. Chop onion, green chilli, coriander leaves and curry leaves finely. In a large mixing bowl, add ragi flour. 2. Then add rice flour, buttermilkand whisk well. 3. Now pour water and whisk well till without any lumps. Then add chopped onions. 4. Add chilli, coriander leaves, curry leaves and jeera. 5. Now add hing, required salt and mix everything well. Keep the batter undisturbed for 30 minutes.
6. Heat a iron tawa / non – stick tawa and sprinkle few drops of water over it. If shhhh sounds comes and the water evaporates immediately the heat is perfect. Take one ladle full of batter and pour over the tawa from the corners to the centre in circular motion. Don’t spread the batter with the ladle. Drizzle little oil all around the corners of the dosa and cook for 1 minute, till the top changes to brown colour. Flip the dosa to the other side with a spatula and cook for another 1/2 minute. Do the same with the remaining batter.
1. For healthier version, sprouted ragi flour can be used.
2. Addition of rice is must, as it gives stiffness to the dosa. 3. To make it diabetic friendly, rice flour can be substituted with wheat flour.
4. Rice flour /wheat flour can be replaced with same quantity of all purpose flour/ maida. But maida is always unhealthy. 5. Use only sour buttermilk for this instant ragi dosa recipe. 6. Water can be used in place of buttermilk. But I recommend using atleast 1/4 cup of buttermilk. 7. The batter should be watery than the normal dosa batter.
8. For more taste don’t skip onion, chilli and jeera. But you can prepare this as plain dosa also.
9. Ghee / butter can be used for making dosa, if you are calorie conscious do it with oil only.
