Ragi Dosa- Traditional
Makes 10-12 Dosas
- ⅓ cup Whole White Urad Dal
- 1 cup Inner Being Ragi Multi Mix
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- Water (As required)
- 1 teaspoon ghee
Step 1 – Take a cup of Ragi flour in a bowl and add a cup of water to it. Make a slurry and mix it well. Allow the batter to rest for 3-4 hours.
Step 2 – Soak whole white urad dal for 3-4 hours in water. Grind the drained urad dal with a cup of water (You can use the same water which was used for soaking the dal) to a smooth paste. Add the paste to the ragi batter along with some salt and mix it well.
Step 3 – Cover the bowl and allow it to ferment for 6-8 hours. This helps the batter to increase in volume. Add about a cup of water to dilute the mixture to a pouring consistency. Do not add water before as the fermentation will get delayed if too much water is added to the batter.
Step 4 – Heat a Dosa pan or griddle. Sprinkle some ghee onto the pan (to avoid the Dosa from sticking). Pour a ladle of batter onto the griddle. Using the back of the ladle spread batter into a round shape. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 30 seconds until the sides are brown. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook Ragi Dosa until browned. Continue with the same procedure with the remaining Ragi Dosa batter.
Step 5. Serve it hot with your favorite chutney and other accompaniments.
