Ragi Roti | Ragi Adai | Finger millet Roti

My mom makes ragi roti as evening snack on our holiday days. But i was not fond of this at that time, just ate one or two bits only. In recent times, i started to like this and also after i came to known the health benefits of ragi, i frequently include in our diet.I make Koozh, Dosa or this roti with ragi for breakfast.As ragi is rich in iron & calcium, it's really very good for health especially women,so try this roti , you wouldn't regret for sure.

Ragi Roti/Adai

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 minsMakes : 6 small roti 
Recipe Category: Breakfast/Dinner | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Ragi Flour/Finger millet flour - 1 cup
Onion - 1 (medium size)
Green chili -1 
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few
Salt to taste

Chop onion & chili into small pieces. Finely chop coriander too and keep every thing  ready. Take the flour in the bowl.Add the chopped onions,chili ,curry leaves & coriander leaves into flour along with salt.Mix it well. Then add enough water and make a dough(just like chapathi dough). It should not be too dry or wet.Take small portion of dough(depends on the size you want) and make a round ball. Grease the plastic sheet (you can use banana leave too) with oil, place the dough & flatten it with your fingers.
In the mean time , heat the tava . Grease your hand with oil & invert the flatten roti into hand and then place it on greased tava. Drizzle oil & cook on both sides in medium flame. Once done, remove it on place & serve immediately.Tasty & healthy Ragi Adai/Roti is ready. Serve it with you favorite chutney.


  • If you wish ,you can saute the onions and add it in.
  • If you're using banana leaves, you can invert the flatten roti in the tava directly. Plastic cover sticks to the tava,so invert it in hand and then i placed it on tava.
  • You can add grated carrot into this.
  • It tastes best when it's hot or warm.
