Raagi Rotti

Here is a simple healthy recipe what i prepared for my Vratha .Raagi is very good for our health.Raagi has a very good nutritive value. It should be taken during winters to keep the body warm and it also prevents the craking of soles.Its a good source of fibres and iron also.It helps to build up muscle protiens.So why not have it different forms.Now comming to the recipe.

Raagi powder - 2 cups
Samolina - 1/2 cup
Coconut grates- 1 cup
Cumin - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
water -to mix
Green chillies - 2 large

1.Take all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2.Add little bit of cold water and keep mixing until it forms a dough like that of chapatti.Take care not to form a sticcky mass as raagi becomes very sticky easily by absorbing water .
3.Then add grated coconut grates,cumin to it with the finely chopped chilly powder and mix properly
4.Now make small balls out of it.
5.Grease the pan a bit and press the balls using your hands into a round rotti.
6.Cook up both the sides smearing ghee until the edges turn a bit crispy.
7.Serve hot with sugar and freshly prepared butter or with spicy chilly chutney.

Chilly chutney:-

Green chilly - 1 large
Dry red chillies- 3 large
Tamarind pulp - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 8 large
coconut grates - 3 tbsp
water - 3 tbsp

For Tempering:-
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Dry chilly - 1
Curry leaves - 2 -3 leaves

1.Blend the coocnut ,chillies and tamarind adding enough water .
2.Add salt as per taste
3.The take a pan add the oil and other tempering ingredients to it and wait till the mustartd starts to splutter.
4.Then add it to the blended mixture.
Enjoy this with all types of rotti's, dosa's and even it tastes good with chapatti.

Ragi dosa is softer than ragi adai. But this and Jowar roti have an unique texture and taste.

This looks very nice Soumya.I had tried this once,with a recipe from some other site.But could not get it right.Do you have to make the roti on the tava itself?I have a non stick tava only and I thought that it was becuase of that that it did not turn out good.Anywa I will give it one more try now that you have posted this one.Thanks for sharing:)
