Instant Ragi(Finger Millet) Dosa | Panji Pullu Dosa | Quick Breakfast

All of us are in search of instant breakfast recipes that makes the work easier in kitchen and at the same time should be packed with nutrients too.Today's post is one such healthy post with ragi that can be prepare in a short time.It tastes delicious with a tangy chutney or just like that when crispy and hot too.These dosas are similar to rava dosa in preparation and batter consistency.Ragi is a rich source of calcium,promotes natural weight loss.It also reduces the risk of diabetes and gastro intestinal disorders.Ragi also helps to reduce blood cholesterol levels and is an excellent source of iron.I have slightly modified the adapted recipe with repeated trials n errors.What more do you think is required to prepare this healthy tasty dosa,go ahead and try it out !!

adapted :cook click n devour 

ragi flour 1 cup
wheat flour /rice flour/sooji(semolina) 1/4 cup
buttermilk 1 cup
green chillies 2 chopped fine
onion 1/2 chopped fine (optional)
baking soda a pinch(strictly optional)
water 3-3.5 cups
salt to taste
oil 2tsp to drizzle

  • Mix both flours together with a wire whisk and add salt.Add in green chillies and chopped onion.Add buttermilk and make a thin batter.Check the consistency of batter and add water if required.Leave aside for 20 minutes.Add pinch of baking soda just before making dosas and mix well.
  • Heat a non stick pan or iron griddle.If you are using iron griddle then rub oil before spreading the batter.
  • Using hands sprinkle the batter like rava dosa from outside the pan of to inside(watch this video to understand better).Cook the dosa until the sides become crisp and sides starts to give off,spread some oil and flip the other side.Cook both sides and transfer on a plate by folding half and then quarter.
  • Repeat the same step till you finish batter.Serve warm with tomato chutney or mint chutney.

 Servings 6-7 dosas

* I have used wheat flour with ragi flour, but you can always use rice flour/semolina(sooji) too.Rice flour or semolina gives a crispier dosa and wheat flour gives a softer variety.

* Adding baking soda  is required if using wheat flour with ragi but with the semolina or rice flour, baking soda is not required.The baking soda adds to the softness of the dosa, but you can make without that too.
* Adding onion is optional, adds flavor.Omit if you don't like, we like the taste, so have added.
* Add grated carrots and chopped coriander leaves for a healthier version.
