Ragi Roti/ Finger Millet Roti

Cooking Time : 30 mins
Serves            : 5 Roti
It is a known factor that Ragi has several health benefits and the recipes prepared using Ragi is also tastier. My mom used to prepare this healthy Roti as a tea time snack atleast once a month which combines the healthy vegetables like Beetroot, Carrot, Cabbage. I got this recipe from my Mom. You can include any other vegetables also according to your taste.

Ragi Flour                                             - 1 cup
Grated Beetroot + Cabbage+Carrot      - 1/2 cup
Onion                                                    - 1 medium size
Green Chillies                                        - 3
Salt                                                       - To Taste
Butter                                                    - 2 tsp
Curry Leaves                                         - 2 strands
Oil                                                         - As Required


  1. Chop Onion and Green Chillies finely. In a Vessel, Combine all the ingredients except Oil and mix well. Add water little by little and make it to a thick dough and make round balls as you do for Chapathi.
  2. Take a plastic sheet, apply oil on the sheet and spread all over. Take a  ball and place it in the sheet and press it with your fingers to make it flat and thin as much as possible. Try to maintain the Round shape as shown in the below pic.
  1. Heat 2 tbsp of Oil in a dosa tawa and place the Roti to the tawa and cook on both sides in a medium flame. You can cook 3 Rotis at a time.
  • If you dont have butter, you can add Ghee. But Butter gives good taste.
  • Add Vegetables according to your taste.
  • Grease the plastic sheet with oil finely so that it will be easy to make it flattened and it wont be sticky.
