As I already mentioned many times, at my home, the Sunday brunches , though they are time consuming, they are my most favourite meal to prepare and favourite meal time for my family too.
And for supper time I either prefer any of these Salads or such ‘Mix & Make’ dosa recipes. These simple instant recipes are my anyday favourite ones to make, specifically to satisfy my kids hunger pangs on Saturday & Sunday evenings / supper.
As per me, the most suitable chutneys / condiments along with this dosa:
- Peanut Chutney / Palli Pachchadi
- Instant Coconut Chutney / Kobbari Pachchadi
- Roasted Tomato Chutney / Tomato Pachchadi
Possible Alterations you can make in, ‘Instant Ragi Flour Dosa / Finger Millet Dosa’:
Instead of whole jeera / cumin seeds you might add same quantity of jeera / cumin powder.
Making a fine paste of ginger-green chillies-cumin can be added too.
White rice flour can be replaced with Brown Rice flour.
Adding, ¼ to ½ cup of rava / smeolina while making the batter, is an option for the dosa to turn crispy. But, note that semolina is not Gluten free.
Adding 1 tablespoon of finely chopped curry leaves, gives a unique aroma.
While making the dosa batter, using ½ cup of curd / yogurt along with water, is a great option too.

Step Wise pics Procedure for ‘Instant Ragi Flour Dosa / Finger Millet Dosa’:
- Adjust the salt & spice as per your taste.
- While making the batter, add water little by little, only as much is required.
- Take care that there are no lumps in the batter, it has to be smooth enough to get best dosa.
- Garlic is NOT SUITABLE for this recipe.
- In case you do not have an appropriate dosa pan, use a wide non-stick frying pan.
- Be careful while turning the dosa to the other side, there are high chances for the dosa to tear in between.
- Storage: You can make the dosa mix (adding the flours, salt, spices) and store it in an air tight container in a cool dry place for about 1 week to 10 days. Just add water and grated veggies just before making dosa(s).
- Making the batter well before is not advisable.
- As shown the below pic, I served this dosa with Beetroot Pachadi / Chutney and Mint Leaves Spice Powder / Pudina Karam Podi, which actually gave the additional flavourful taste to the dosa.
- As the flours we added have a quite dull taste, these Ragi Dosa are almost tasteless if eaten without the spicy chutneys.
- If your kids are not ready to eat the chutneys, you might serve with a simple veggie raita.
