Raagi Roti

Raagi roti has become Hari's recent obsession, I dont know why. It is his normal practice to ask for his favourite food immediately after returning from the US. He mostly asks only for Lemon sevai or dosa .But this time he was like almost pestered me to make this Raagi roti specially when I had a guest at home. I tried explaining him so much that Ragi roti is not a rich food and will not look good if I serve her this. He got irritated with my explanation and stopped talking to me. Then Finally I had to make it for him . Nothing like seeing him enjoing his food.
I hope you guys enjoy this roti as well . Its pretty simple to make ofcourse this blog is all about simple recipes.
Even if you are not on dieting spree , I am sure you would relish this roti.

Ingredients :

  1. Ragi Flour - 2 cups
  2. Water - 2 cups
  3. Gingelly oil - 2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Onion - 1 big
  6. Green chillies - 5 nos.
  7. Coriander leaves - 1 small bunch

Method :
  1. Heat water in a wide pan and bring it to boil along with oil and salt.
  2. Once water starts boiling immediately add flour and mix well.Flour will absorb all the water and comes into a dough consistency in a minute.Remove the pan off the stove and let it cool.
  3. Now chop onions,green chillies, coriander leaves and add it to the above pan and knead it slightly like a dough. This should not take you more than 2 minutes.
  4. Then pinch a big roundel from the dough , place it on a greased plastic sheet or aluminium foil and place one more polythene sheet over the roundel.Now take a plate and press the roundel , it will spread like a chappathi.Now you take a rolling pin and roll it like a chappathi with the plastic sheet on.
  5. Take off the polythene sheet , gently remove the rolled roti from the foil and place it on dosa tawa, cook it on medium flame on both sides.

Notes :
  1. You can replace any leafy veggie like drumstick leaves,dill leaves for coriander.That would make this roti even more healthier.
  2. You can also add grated coconut to make it much tastier.
  3. Need not smear oil when cooking as you have already greased the plastic sheet.
  4. Roll it out as thin as possible to get it cooked fast.This should be easy as I dont find any difficulty in rolling it out thin.
  5. This 2 cups made about 10 Rotis.
  6. I used approximately 1 tsp. of salt for 2 cups of flour.
  7. Peanut chutney is my choice for this roti.
