This instant ragi dosa, gluten-free as well as vegan, is a healthy & yummy treat to have in breakfast or any other time of the day. This Dosa is as crispy as Rawa Dosa but without using any semolina.
And this is my 4th day’s post from alphabet D for Blogchatters A2Z Challenge 2020.
Instant Ragi Dosa is truly instant in the sense that it gets ready within seconds. Its just mixing ragi flour with water. The only time required is in chopping the veggies that too get quickly if you use a chopper or food processor. There is no need to leave the batter for 5 or 10 or 15 minutes as Ragi is gluten-free.
I shared with you in my very first post on millets that 2023 is going to be celebrated as the International Year Of Millets. I felt all the more nice when yesterday saw our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, speaking on the importance of millets saying that we all must contribute towards Millet Revolution. So, ready to explore the world of millets?
Ragi Dosa With Veggies
Ragi, no doubt, is one of the most popular as well as the most nutritious millet with a very high percentage of calcium in it but it has a muddy or say earthy and rustic taste. If you are having it since the beginning then you develop a taste for it but the beginners may or may not relish it easily. So, one way to reduce this smell is to roast it slightly. The other is to add flavours. Therefore, I try using some flavouring in my Ragi recipes. Like, I have used chocolate in my Ragi Chocolate muffins, banana in Ragi Banana Cake and a lot of Italian seasonings in Ragi Lavash Crackers. These flavours not only beautifully combat the earthy taste of Ragi and but also make the preparations tasty. So, what to use in Ragi Dosa? I added onions and other veggies and it tasted perfect.
Before we have a look at the recipe, let us have a look at Ragi and its benefits. I am sure after knowing these benefits you will enjoy your Dosa all the more.
What Is Ragi?
Ragi, one of the most popular millets, needs no introduction today but still just a few lines about it. Ragi is a millet also known as Finger Millet or Nachni Flour. It is a wonder grain seated on the topmost level amongst all the cereals. Want to know how people in different parts of our country call it? Then, have a look below:
Nutritional Profile Of Ragi (Per 100 g)
See, Each 100 g of Ragi has 344 mg of calcium. No other millet stands even near to it in terms of calcium.
Benefits Of Ragi
Ragi, being a millet is a store-house of benefits.
- Rich in minerals, vitamins, and digestible fibres, and offers excellent nourishment.
- Gluten-free. So it is very good for all who are allergic to gluten and cannot have wheat/semolina etc.
- It helps in reducing weight. How? This is because, being fibre rich, it makes you feel fuller for a longer period of time thus reducing the food intake. Also, the fat content in Ragi is much lower than all other cereals.
- Low in glycemic index which makes it good for diabetics.
- Rich in calcium. Normally cereals are devoid of calcium but this millet is an exception. Thus it is good for growing children and for all those who are deficient in calcium. So, now instead of having that calcium pill, include ragi in your diet.
- Suffering from anemia? Start including Ragi in your diet as it is a rich source of iron.
- It is an excellent baby food as it not only improves digestion but is full of nutrients like iron and calcium.
- It boosts lactation. So, feeding mothers have ragi in some form or the other.
