  • Add in some water to the bowl and rinse it a couple of times or till water looks transparent to remove dust or dirt particles from ragi grain and urad dal.
  • Let them soak about 4-5 hours. After this you can see both of ragi grains and urad dal are nicely soaked. Then rinse them about a couple of times again and drain the water.
  • Add them to a mixer jar, add in 1tbsp salt or as per the taste, then add 2tbsp of cooked rice(for fermentation purpose).

  • Once ground, pour the batter in to a mixing bowl and cover it with a lid and let it rest for about 7-8 hours or overnight for perfect fermentation.
  • After 7-8 hours, you can see the batter is nicely fermented. Now heat a dosa tawa and grease it with ghee.
  • Once the tawa is nicely greased, reduce the flame to medium and pour the prepared ragi millet batter in to the pan and spread evenly as thin as possible to make it super crisp.
  • Drizzle in 1/2tsp of desi ghee on dosa. Allow the dosa to get roasted on low flame, once roasted flip it over carefully.
  • After about a minute, the dosa will be ready to serve. You can enjoy it with any chutney you like.


  • You can soak 1/4th cup of rice with finger millet and urad dal to make it more crispy.
  • 1/4th cup of soaked poha can be used while grinding the batter instead of cooked rice for easy fermentation of batter.
