  • 1 Cups Ragi Flour
  • 1/2 medium sized chopped Onion )Around 1/2 Cup (Optional if you do not eat onion))
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped coriander
  • 1-2 green chilies to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 cups of Water
  • 2-3 tbsp Ghee/Clarified Butter for Shallow frying (One can use oil , I like to add ghee in Ragi dosa), For Vegans, use Oil


  • In a large bowl add in the ragi flour, onion, coriander, chilies and salt.
  • Slowly add in the water 1/2 cup at a time to make a lump free batter.
  • We need a runny batter something like, when you turn around the spoon, the dough should not be sticking behind the back of the spoon.
  • Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a pan and drizzle some oil.
  • Once hot, wipe the pan with a clean tissue or cut potato.
  • On medium heat, pour a big spoonful of batter in the pan, making sure it spreads all over. You would need to be quick as the batter has a tendency to immediately stick. (I could not take a pic, will take it next time).
  • Swirl your pan if required , so that the batter spreads uniformly all over.
  • Once you see bubbles appearing, add a few drops of ghee on top and edges.
  • Slowly the dosa starts cooking and leaving the edges.
  • Flip and cook on the other side.
  • Let it cook on the other side for 1-2 mins.
  • Serve hot with some chutney. I love to enjoy it with my Adrak wali chai (Ginger Tea)


One can make a tadka of Oil, Mustard seeds and Curry leaves and add to the batter. I have skipped here, but do add at times.
