Ragi Adai / Finger Millet Savoury Pancake

Ragi / Nachni (finger millet) is gluten free and a great source of energy, which is also a traditional food in India. Recently I tried Ragi Adai, which was so filling and has ever since become a favorite 'Brunch' with my folks!

  • Curry Leaves - few
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 2 tblsp
  • In a mixing bowl add ragi flour, chopped onions, green chillies, peanuts,curry leaves and salt

  • Add warm water and make a dough
  • Take lemon size dough on a greased banana leaf or a zip lock bag and flatten the dough with your fingers
  • Heat the tawa or griddle with 1 tsp oil and transfer the flattened dough to the tawa
  • If you are using zip lock bag, transfer the dough first to your hands and then to the tawa
