Ragi Chapathi | Finger Millet Roti | Ragi Roti

Ragi Chapathi, a delicious and healthy roti made from finger millet flour and wheat flour. If you have followed by blog for a while, you might knew by this time that how much i like ragi and i already have a lot of recipes using ragi/finger millet like idiyappam, dosa, paniyaram, murukku and many more. Do check out the respective link if you're interested.

 Now coming to today's recipe, it's my recent addition to the ragi series. Whenever i'm bored of regular chapathi/ roti using wheat flour, i like to play with other flours in addition to the wheat flour/atta, out of few experiments, this ragi chapathi is my favorite. 
The ratio of wheat flour to ragi flour is purely upto your preference, you can add more or less of any flour, the given quantity is my preference and it gives soft chapathi with wonderful ragi flavor.

If the ragi flour is more in the dough, it's hard to roll the chapathi smoothly and also the chapathi will be little bit on harder side, on the other hand if the wheat flour is more, the color of the chapathi is dull and also it doesn't have much ragi flavor.

As i said earlier before, it's really up to you on what you and your family prefer and adjust accordingly. Now let's check out the recipe.
